These eleven lucid, fresh, and thought-provoking essays from a master-craftsman among New Testament scholars reflect his conviction that these three topics—hermeneutics, Christology, and discipleship—must always be considered together.

In the first set of essays, Longenecker sets out his distinctive take on the nature of an evangelical hermeneutics.

In the second set, he focuses on what he calls the “foundational conviction of New Testament Christology,” the obedience/faithfulness/sonship of Christ, and brings back into discussion often forgotten dimensions of Christology. Here he explores a range of christological materials and motifs within the early Christian communities, with special studies on the concept of the virgin birth and on the curious case of the Melchizedek Christology in Hebrews.

The third set, both practical and exegetical, are, as he says, “where the rubber meets the road,” on the implications of the “Son of Man” imagery for discipleship and on the theme of discipleship in Luke–Acts.
