One Soverign Life Thoughts on the Life of Jesus
One Soverign Life Thoughts on the Life of Jesus Author:Dr. Edwin Prince Booth A powerfull, moving picture of the man Jesus is here presented, clearing away the myths and traditions that have attached themselves to his life through the years. — Dr. Booth especially stresses Jesus' awareness of Israel's past and traditions and Jesus' own Messianic consciousness. The author has, in his own words, attempted to "retell the his... more »torical reality, because its author lives...in the existential reality." He sees in the New Testament text a completely normal historical document and one which is fully a product of human life.
Jesus is seen as being similar to, and yet different from, others of his time and background. His physical characteristics, mental aptitudes, and spiritual inclinations are discussed and evaluated. Particular importantance is given to the fact that it was his cousin John the Baptist that brought Jesus to "vocation-maturity."
Powerfully written, this book is based on sound New Testament scholarship and presents the facts in a highly interesting and challenging manner.« less
