Traces the life of Jesus Christ and describes the historical background of the times in which he lived

Publishers Description
The time is ripe for a new account of the life of Jesus. It has been over twenty-five years since an evangelical New Testament scholar has written a textbook survey of this type. Today the landscape of Jesus and Gospel studies has been radically transformed by new questions and critical challenges. No less remarkable is the contemporary renaissance of our knowledge of the world of Jesus. InJesus the Messiah Robert Stein draws together the results of a career of research and writing on Jesus and the Gospels. Every episode in the life of Jesus is here treated with historical care and attention to its significance for understanding the life and ministry of Jesus. Clearly written, ably argued and geared to the needs of students, Jesus the Messiah will give probing minds a sure grounding in the life and ministry of Jesus.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus the Messiah: A Survey of the Life of Christ?

Excellent!!  Mar 19, 2007
A very well thought out and well researched study of the synoptic gospels. I'd highly recommend this book for believers and non-believers who have questions.

level headed reading  Jan 22, 2007
this is a fantastic "intro" to the study of Jesus according to the new testament. The author has done his homework and presents well researched material in an understandeable way. this work covers the whole spectrum of Jesus as found in the new testament gospel accounts, and then some. Just a great book to become familiar with Jesus studies and related issues. Some other extremely good ones are: Jesus in His World by Peter Walker; Jesus and The Gospels by Craig Blomberg; and The Original Jesus by N.T. Wright.
A great overview of the Life of Christ  Sep 18, 2000
I teach a college-level "Life of Christ" survey class and use this book as my text. It is clear, orderly, evangelical, and well documented, perfect for a learning environment such as a college classroom. The issues dealt with by Stein involve more than just his personal opinion (although he will tell you what he feels is the most likely interpretation). He does make a big point to explain different interpretations of various points of disagreement (such as the ethical teachings of Jesus). I find this to be much more honest and refreshing than merely ignoring opposing points of view. Stein supports everything with references from the Bible as well as numerous other books on the subject, many of which are unfortunately out of print. If you want a nondevotional survey on the Life of Christ, I know of no better book.
