Item description for Jesus of Nazareth by Jurgen Becker & J. Rgen Becker...
In this study Juergen Becker presents a new historically grounded explanation of the phrases "kingdom of God" and "God's reign" the central terms of Jesus proclamation. The author, a professor of the New Testament, draws on an impressive range of sources to trace Jesus special position within early Judaism. At the same time, he retains his focus on Jesus' ministry, viewed as the beginning of the history of early Christianity. Becker thus sees the proclamation of the kingdom as the founding moment of a distinct community of faith.
