Item description for The Origin of Christology by C. F. D. Moule...

Lectures in which the distinguished theologian argues that "development" is closer to the truth than "evolution" as a description of the genesis of Christology.

Publishers Description
This book is about the processes by which Christians of the first century came to understand Jesus as they did. Some writers represent these as 'evolutionary', as though a merely human teacher came to be thought of as a divine figure (a new species, so to speak). Professor Moule suggests that 'development' is a preferable analogy, implying not the evolution of a new species of figure, but the development of understanding of what was there in Jesus from the beginning. The author re-examines four familiar characterizations of Jesus as 'the Son of Man', 'the Son of God', 'Christ' and 'Lord'; then he considers the reflexion in the Pauline epistles of an experience of Jesus as more than individual. In his concluding chapter Professor Moule speculates, in dialogue with Dr Haddon Willmer, about the implications of his findings for Christian doctrine. The book, which earned for the author the Collins Biennial Religious Book Award in 1977, embodies his 1974 Moorhouse Lectures in Melbourne, Australia. It was first published in June 1977.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Origin of Christology?

Get Some Reading Glasses  Apr 5, 2007
This theology book is an important read - it addresses one of the core issues of the Christian faith. Was Jesus' reputation crafted into Deity after his death, or did the early church's view of Him stem from His actual teachings and ministry? This is not light reading. You ought to know some NT Greek, and know some basic Bible, or this book might be over your head. It is a scholarly volume.

This book loses a star for being overpriced, and for the poor print quality. The words on the page are very light. I think the publisher could have made a better reprint than this.
