Passions of the Christ: The Emotional Life of Jesus in the Gospels

ISBN: 9781540961761



Senior New Testament scholar F. Scott Spencer focuses on a neglected area in the study of Jesus and the Gospels: the emotional life of Jesus. This book offers a fresh reading of the Gospels through the lens of Jesus’s emotions—anger, grief, disgust, surprise, compassion, and joy. These emotions motivated Jesus’s mission and reveal to Gospel readers what mattered most to him. Amid his passions, Jesus forged his character as God’s incarnate Messiah, wholly embodied and emotionally engaged with others and thoroughly embedded in the surrounding environment.
