In this compelling work, authors Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola reclaim the entire Bible as a gripping narrative about Jesus Christ. Virtually every other “Jesus biography” begins with the nativity account in Bethlehem. In this groundbreaking book, Sweet and Viola begin before time, in the Triune God, and tell the complete interconnected story of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation.
Jesus: A Theography is the first book ever written to combine historical Jesus studies with biblical theology, crafting together one breathtaking saga that tells the Jesus story in both Old and New Testaments. This flagship book demonstrates clearly that every bit of Scripture is part of the same stunning drama, what the authors refer to as the theography of Jesus Christ.
- Jesus: A Theography
I highly recommend this book as a case study on Jesus. It presents a whole picture from Genesis to Revelation, not simply what we see in the gospels. If you want to understand how the Bible is one cohesive story pointing to Christ, you don't want to miss this book.
- Liberty is taken in statements
There's a lot of speculating in this book. Analogies are drawn at times in this book where they "could" be drawn, but where there are no clear typologies. I would advise spending money on a more solid analysis of the presence of Jesus throughout Scripture.
