Firstborn Son of God

£12.99

How did the Old Testament writers portray the coming and nature of the Christ? This book discusses the OT roots of the Christological titles: Son of God, Suffering Servant, Davidic Messianic King, and Son of Man.

Description

How Jesus the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee came to be recognised as the Son of God.

How can Jesus a Galilean Jew who was humiliated and brutally crucified for claiming to be the Messiah, in the context of the Jewish feast of the Passover, have been proclaimed and accepted as the Son of God? How might such a Christology have developed, in theological terms, from the Old Testament? In Firstborn Son of God, Kyungu Ra discusses this question in terms of the three main Christological titles: the Davidic messianic King, the suffering Servant of Deutero-Isaiah, and the Son of Man figure in Daniel, and examines how these distinct Old Testament concepts are related to each other through the frame of the Exodus (the death of the firstborn son in the context of the Passover) and the New Exodus.
