Deity of Christ: Was Jesus a Fraud or Was He God?

For the Olive Tree Bible App

Title: Deity of Christ: Was Jesus a Fraud or Was He God?
Publisher: Kingsley Books
Author: F. F. Bruce

Description

In New Testament times there did not seem to be any doubt that Jesus said he was God. But nearly 300 years later a priest in Alexandria, Egypt, taught that although Jesus had divine attributes, he himself was not God—a viewpoint that remains among some groups today. Recognizing that the doctrine of the deity of Christ was under attack, Dr. William J. Martin, lecturer at University of Liverpool, and Dr. F.F. Bruce, professor at the University of Manchester, wrote a little book stating the case for the deity of Christ "with biblical reverence and theological power," said Christianity Today. This edition also includes three articles by Professor Bruce about the deity of Christ, the incarnation, and the virgin birth from Precious Seed magazine.

After recounting the history of the attack on the deity of Christ by Arius, a teaching that was declared to be heretical at the Council of Nicaea, the authors carefully draw from both the Old and New Testaments a clear and balanced view of this essential doctrine. The deity of Christ "is the keystone of the great arch of the Christian faith," they say. "Remove it and the whole arch would collapse."

This volume is available individually, or as part of the F.F. Bruce Collection, which brings together many classic works from this prolific author, including commentary volumes, scholarly discussions, and popular works accessible to readers of all levels.


F.F. Bruce (1910-1990), known as the dean of evangelical scholarship, had a passion for proclaiming the Bible as God’s guide for our lives. He was Rylands Professor of Biblical Criticism and Exegesis at the University of Manchester in England. A prolific writer, his commentary volumes and other works are considered classics. His work New Testament Documents: Are They Reliable was selected by Christianity Today as one of the top 50 books of all time which shaped evangelicals. Bruce combined an immense contribution to evangelical scholarship with a passion for proclaiming the Bible as God’s guide for our lives. He used his great knowledge to explain the Bible simply and clearly.
