Self-Disclosure of Jesus

Vos, Geerhardus

$14.99 MSRP

Product Description:

In this recently reprinted work, Vos challenges classic Liberalism’s rejection of Jesus’ self-conscious messianic awareness. As Vos sees it, this anti-supernaturalistic assessment of the Gospel witness evidences itself in three key assumptions: (1) whatever occurs in history can never be absolutely true or authoritative; (2) all historical events are fundamentally similar and explainable in terms of natural phenomena, and (3) all historical events exist in an interrelated chain of cause and effect so that all events are part of a closed naturalistic system. While the material is somewhat dated, similar arguments put forward on the contemporary scene have already been tried and found wanting by Vos’ keen exegetical and theological insight. - Jeff Waddington - Westminster Bookstore Staff

Publisher Review:

Did Jesus claim to be the Messiah? What Vos discerned in his day applies equally to ours: "a certain class of writers" regards with "disfavor ... the Messianic element in the Gospels." His comprehensive, detailed refutation of such writers has helped evangelicals answer these questions affirmatively for more than seventy five years (First released in 1926).
