ISBN: 9781493418459

Overview

Representing the fruit of a lifetime of study, this work from renowned scholar Gordon Fee offers a concise summary of Paul’s teaching about Jesus.

In the course of his extensive teaching and writing career in New Testament studies, Fee noticed a considerable gap in the scholarly literature regarding Paul’s understanding of the person of Christ. His comprehensive Pauline Christology has been very useful for scholars, but it did not fulfill Fee’s ultimate aim of the project–to make the results accessible to any interested reader of Scripture. This concise volume offers a theological synthesis of the exegetical work found in Fee’s Pauline Christology, making it more accessible to a wider readership. The book includes a foreword by Cherith Fee Nordling.

Praise for the Print Edition

Gordon Fee is among the most respected New Testament scholars of our time. With this focus on Jesus as Lord he offers the church a practical, compelling, and even eye-opening demonstration of Paul’s high Christology. He gives sound treatment of crucial texts and of the relation of the Father, Son, and Spirit in Paul’s letters. This book deserves your attention.

Klyne Snodgrass, Paul W. Brandel Professor of New Testament Studies, North Park Theological Seminary

Exegetically grounded and theologically synthetic, academic and devotionally reverent, grounded in research but practical and simple to follow, Fee’s Jesus the Lord according to Paul the Apostle makes the fruits of his years of careful work on Paul’s letters and Christology more widely available. Intertextually rich and theologically provocative, this book invites us to rethink traditional academic constructions of Paul’s theology in light of the primary data provided rather conspicuously by Paul’s own letters.

Craig S. Keener, F.M. and Ada Thompson Professor of Biblical Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary

I cut my intellectual teeth on Gordon Fee’s 1 Corinthians commentary as an undergraduate student. Again and again his academic insight astounded me, and his pastoral wisdom and overt Pentecostal spirituality encouraged me. Almost twenty years later my respect for him has not diminished; I routinely check his works in my own research and teaching. So many of his areas of scholarly and practical passion combine in Jesus the Lord according to Paul the Apostle, including his careful reading of texts, his emphasis on Christian behavior (as opposed to ‘works’), his interest in the Spirit, and his bridge work between biblical studies and systematic theology. This is a classic Fee feast. Chew on this. Chew well.
