God the Revealed: Christology


Eerdmans 2013

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


“God revealed himself in Jesus Christ!” Christian faith has confessed and proclaimed this message for nearly two thousand years. But what does it really mean? In God the Revealed, Michael Welker delves into this declaration and shows how it offers genuine insight into Christian faith. He asks “Who is Jesus Christ for us today?” and approaches the answer from five different angles—the historical Jesus, the Resurrection, the Cross, the reign of Christ, and eschatology. Uniquely, Welker argues for the need to place historical Jesus research in a Christology and proposes a “Fourth Quest” for the historical Jesus.

Praise for the Print Edition

There is nothing available that can be quite compared to this wide-ranging study, rethinking the presence of the living Christ in the light of current debates on the resurrection, cross, and office of the historical Jesus. Given Michael Welker’s international repute, this translation will certainly be studied and discussed in many classrooms throughout the world.

—Dirk J. Smit, professor, University of Stellenbosch

Welker helps make Jesus Christ come alive for us today by tackling the many theological challenges that obstruct recognition of God in our midst. In the process he offers a wonderfully complex account of our encounter with God in Christ in all its polyphonic and multidimensional reality. A compelling and wise book.

—Kathryn Tanner, Frederick Marquand Professor of Systematic Theology, Yale Divinity School

After several books about the Holy Spirit and the creation, Michael Welker here presents a systematic Christology. He builds bridges between classical and contemporary issues, offering new insights on revelation, the cross, the resurrection, and the reign of the exalted Christ. Welker’s multicontextual perspective will inform and inspire Christians from all denominations.

—Risto Saarinen, professor of ecumenics, University of Helsinki
