NT Christology reading lists
Derek Brown offers an excellent ‘list of the most important works (excluding journal articles and essays) on NT Christology’. I suggested in the notes that he missed Hengel’s Son of God, and thinking about it, W Kramer’s titular study (Christos Kyrios Gottessohn) should also get a mention. Actually, now I’m pondering it, perhaps mention could be also made of Richardson’s Paul’s Language about God, Thüsing’s Per Christum in Deum, Kreitzer’s Jesus and God in Paul’s Eschatology, de Jonge’s various works, Harvey’s Jesus and the Constraints of History, Harris’ study of the title Theos and Capes’ work on YHWH texts and Christ. To be fair, Derek’s list was meant to be ‘brief’, and it is an excellent list, and some of my suggestions are focused on Pauline Christology, rather than NT Christology generally, so this isn’t meant as criticism of Derek’s list.
UPDATE: Derek has since added a few more to his list!
Perhaps there is no more fascinating a subject of study as Christology, especially NT Christology. In my opinion, Pauline Christology is the most fascinating of all, especially given modern debates surrounding the question as to whether it is divine. But then I would say that I suppose.
Oh, also be sure to have a look at Stephen's posts on annihilationism (1. God's love, 2. The justice of God a and b and 3. The Wages of sin).
