Top Customer Reviews
The author provides a five-fold construct for understanding Jesus after he has, first of all, helped to build sufficient credibility for the biblical testimony to Him. The five tiers of his case are:
(1) Jesus' self-centred teaching
(2) Jesus' dynamic deeds
(3) Jesus' resurrection
(4) Jesus and fulfilled prophecy
(5) Jesus and contemporary experience
If one was to be critical of the treatment, one might complain that it would be helpful to have 'more' material in support of each point, but that would be to miss the strength of Williams' argument - each tier provides enough data and reasoning to take one on to the next step. Each element of the case that the author presents to help us understand Jesus is therefore sufficient on its own, but more importantly, is sufficient when viewed cumulatively with the other elements.Read more ›
