Christological eschatology or eschatological christology, that is the question. The answer is both. Within these double themes, Ellis explores a number of topics relating to the person of Jesus and this age and the age to come. Radiating from these two core concepts, topics from a historical, critical, and an exegetical perspective reflect an understanding of Scripture as preeminently the Word of God to the church and a conviction that biblical study at every level is pertinent to its theological concerns. Ellis concludes with three chapters that provide considered judgments on the historical and hermeneutical framework of early Christianity from which the theological studies proceed. This volume interacts with and offers further discussion on disputed topics in contemporary New Testament studies, and every chapter keeps both academic and ecclesial interests in view.ContentsPreface Abbreviations A.
