Jesus the Temple gives readers a fresh understanding of the life, ministry, and teachings of Jesus. It helps to narrow the gap between “the historical Jesus” and “the Christ of faith.”
In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Jesus the Temple are tagged to the original language texts and the English translation of your choice, which makes this resource more powerful and easier to access than ever before. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “Jesus” or “temple.”
Nicholas Perrin’s latest book takes a fresh look at the concept of Jesus as temple. To do this, he reviews Jesus’ relationship to the Jerusalem temple, the early Christian community’s idea that Jesus is the new temple, of which his followers are a part, and how this idea may well be rooted in the teaching of Jesus himself. There is little in the book that is conventional, and readers will be surprised again and again by Perrin’s creative insights and control of both primary and secondary literatures. This is a significant advance in an important area of study.

This is one of the few scholarly books in my memory that can turn a phrase with literary allusions ranging from Albert Schweitzer to Bob Dylan. Delightful reading and worthy of careful appraisal.
