B 54 Jesus is Lord: Why Early Christians Believed This and Why it Mattered (2009)

What did the first Christians think of Jesus and why? They drew on the rich resources of the Jewish Scriptures, read with messianic expectation and followed Jesus' own creative theological thinking about his identity.

As Christians moved into the different subcultures of Empire, this quickly produced a complex but compelling view of Jesus as part of the Godhead, one that was not mere theory but which nurtured faith and shaped discipleship.
