Who is Jesus? This is the fundamental question for christology. The earliest Christians used various titles, most of them drawn from the Old Testament or Hebrew Scriptures, to express their faith in Jesus. They called him prophet, teacher, Messiah, Son of David, Son of Man, Lord, Son of God, Word of God, and occasionally even God. In Who Is Jesus? Thomas Rausch, S.J., focuses on the New Testament's rich variety of christologies. Who Is Jesus? covers the three quests for the historical Jesus, the methods for retrieving the historical Jesus, the Jewish background, the Jesus movement, his preaching and ministry, death and resurrection, the various New Testament christologies, and the development of christological doctrine from the New Testament period to the Council of Chalcedon. Chapters are The Three Quests for the Historical Jesus," *Methodological Considerations, - *The Jewish Background, - *Jesus and His Movement, - *The Preaching and Ministry of Jesus, - *The Death of Jesus, - *God Raised Him from the Dead, - *New Testament Christologies, - *From the New Testament to Chalcedon, - *Sin and Salvation, - and *A Contemporary Approach to Soteriology. - Thomas P. Rausch, SJ, PhD, is the T. Marie Chilton Professor of Catholic Theology at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. A specialist in ecclesiology, ecumenism, and the theology of the priesthood, he has published eight books including the award-winning Catholicism at the Dawn of the Third Millennium, The College Student's Introduction to Theology, andReconciling Faith and Reason: Apologists, Evangelists, and Theologians in a Divided Church, published by Liturgical Press.

In this cutting-edge collection of essays, an extraordinary and diverse group of biblical scholars, theologians, and ethicists from around the world offer perspectives on topics such as the New Testament portraits of Jesus of Nazareth and their reception history; interpretative efforts to understand the central claim that Christ became human; the consequences of the incarnation for our understanding of the variegated nature of humankind (i.e. what is the "body" into which Christ incarnated?); and the impact of Christ's humanity on the transformation of the human world.

Who is Jesus? Is He God, as the church has claimed for nearly two thousand years? Or is He just a good man? J. V. Fesko takes a close look at Jesus's "I am" claims in the gospel of John and guides us to a better understanding of who Jesus is. Jesus, the author says, conducted His ministry clothed in His "coat of Old Testament colors" made, in God's providence, of the promises, prophecies, themes, and ideas that foretold of the Messiah. Jesus's claims of deity reveal that He is the great I AM, the name God revealed to Moses at the burning bush. In this book with study questions, suitable for individual or group study, Fesko views the "I am" sayings of Jesus through the perspective of the Old Testament, and we come to see Him in His biblical glory as God in the flesh, who dwelled among men to seek and to save those who were lost.

Several interesting and inspiring lives of Christ are available to us. Yet, there is a need for a critical and more scientific presentation of the person of Jesus Christ. This is particularly important today, when traditional beliefs are questioned and challenged in the light of advances in various fields of human knowledge. Is it meaningful to believe in Jesus Christ today? What does human reason tell us about Him? What does faith tell us about Him ? Is it possible to harmonise the viewpoints of faith and reason? Who is Jesus Christ? What do we mean when we say that He is truly God and truly man at the same time? This little course tries to answer some of these questions. In these pages Jesus Christ is presented in the light of: (i) World literature, sacred and profane (ii) Islam and Hinduism (iii) the latest studies in the New Testament using modern critical methods (iv) Christian beliefs and dogma (v) prayer and reflection. If people are helped to deepen their knowledge of Jesus Christ, to love Him more and to commit themselves more fully to His service by putting on His mind, these pages will have served a useful purpose. I wish to express here my sincere gratitude to my scripture professor, Fr. George Soares-Prabhu, S. J. and my dogma professors, Frs. Josef Neuner, S. J. and Aloysius Bermejo, S.J., all of Jnana-Deepa, Pune for the training they gave me in Theology. Finally, a word of sincere thanks to Sr. Nandita, F. C.. for the illustrations. Fr. Joseph M. Dias, S.J, St. Stanislaus' Junior College, Bandra, Bombay-400 050. 25th March, 1979
