Finding evidence for Jesus' pre-incarnate existence in the Synoptics, Gathercole compares the "I have come" sayings of Jesus with angelic pronouncements in Second Temple and rabbinic literature; considers the variety of titles applied to Jesus; then comments on related topics such as wisdom Christology. Will stir up debate. 320 pages, softcover. Eerdmans.
In this challenging book, rising New Testament scholar Simon Gathercole contradicts a commonly held view among biblical scholars -- that the Gospel of John is the only Gospel to give evidence for Jesus' heavenly identity and preexistence. The Preexistent Son demonstrates that Matthew, Mark, and Luke were also well aware that the Son of God existed with the Father prior to his earthly ministry. Gathercole supports his argument by considering the "I have come" sayings of Jesus and strikingly similar angelic sayings discovered in Second Temple and Rabbinic literature. Further, he considers related topics such as Wisdom Christology and the titles applied to Jesus in the Synoptic Gospels. Gathercole's carefully researched work should spark debate among Synoptic scholars and extend the understanding of anyone interested in this New Testament question.
