Overview

Scripture illustrates the greatness of Jesus—his love, his wisdom, and his dignity. In There Is No Greater Love: How Jesus is Greater Than All Who Came Before Him, Warren A. Gage surveys Scripture, examining New Testament authors’ understanding of the greatness of Jesus. Key in this examination is the use of typology—a method of biblical interpretation where an Old Testament type prefigures and finds its ultimate fulfillment in a New Testament antitype. Jesus made statements comparing himself to the temple, Solomon, and Jonah; and the authors of the New Testament used comparisons to illustrate Jesus’ unique excellence. There Is No Greater Love is an accessible study of these comparisons and what they reveal about Jesus’ greatness. Filled with rich descriptions and references to Scripture, this work is perfect for personal and group study.

The Logos Bible Software edition of There Is No Greater Love: How Jesus is Greater Than All Who Came Before Him is designed to enhance your study of Jesus’ greatness. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and original language texts, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about biblical typology, Jesus’ greatness, and the relationship between the Old and New Testament.
