Publishers Description
In Who Is Jesus? Keck clarifies the difference between the way Jesus is presented in the Gospels and the way critical historians portray him. He then explores, from four perspectives, Jesus' contemporary moral and theological pertinence. Keck looks initially at Jesus as a first-century Jew, then considers how Jesus' mission was energized by his grasp of the kingdom of God. He goes on to probe the meaning of the crucifixion of Jesus in light of the biblical understanding of God's holiness, a theme largely neglected today. Keck concludes his discussion by looking at Jesus' role in the moral life of the Christian community.

Reviews - What do customers think about Who Is Jesus? Personalities of the New Testament (Personalities of the New Testament Series)?

One of the best studies on Jesus in many years.  May 19, 2001
Leander Keck's new book,"Who is Jesus?", is a very good study of the Theological and Historical meaning of Jesus Christ. The chapter called The "Fractured Prism", is one of the best combinations of Historical study and Theological reflection, on Jesus that I have ever read, and I have read a lot of these kinds of books. Keck shows how unique the Christian view of God as seen through Jesus of Nazareth actually is. The Christian God is not one that the natural proclivities of the Human imagination is likely to conjure up. He's/she's much too demanding and Holy to be a Human construct. Another interesting point Keck makes is how Jesus probably felt towards the Gentiles(which is everyone who was/is not Jewish) Jesus had a sort of indifference to Gentiles. His mission was to the lost sheep of Isreal, and thus to the gentile via the Jew. In Christian belief it was the Resurrection of Jesus by the Jewish God, that changed things as far as the Gentiles were/are concerned. The great commission and the missionary work of the early christians, especially Paul, are post Resurrection directives of Christian Faith. Christians must not forget that their faith is a Very Jewish one. The scandal of particularity,started with the Jewish claim of being the chosen people of God, to live out before the World, how the worlds Creator wants the world to live. Keck has caused me to do a lot of thinking, which is good. He would no doubt disagree with most of my thinking, but then again maybe not. Buy this book and study it, you will be doing yourself a favor.
