Jesus Divine Messiah
The New and Old Testament Witness
Robert L. Reymond
Robert L. Reymond is a major evangelical theologian. The systematic theologians whose theological works are not only the most reliable but also the most deeply satisfying are those who are equally at home in biblical studies. One thinks, for instance, of superb exegetes like John Calvin and Charles Hodge, whose commentaries are as valuable as their theological works. Christian Focus are to be congratulated for their publication of two impressive volumes by Professor Reymond in the realm of biblical studies, his books on Paul and on John, and now for publishing this robust presentation of the evidence for the divine messiahship of Jesus. The range of scholarship is extensive, and there is no exegetical or theological nettle that he hesitates to grasp here. He never fudges an issue and the reader is left in no doubt as to what his own view is on any of the issues he handles. His opening chapter, in which he deals with present denials of the deity of Jesus, is of special value, and I would make it required reading for every theological student.
