Lamech and Other Christologies

Lamech and Other Christologies May 22, 2014

Here’s a round-up of some interesting recent blog posts on Christology:

Mike Skinner highlighted a post by Richard Beck, contrasting Jesus and Lamech, which concludes poignantly that “The Song of Lamech is not the Song of the Lamb.”

Andrew Perriman makes the case that Jesus is not included in the “divine identity” in 1 Corinthians 8:6.

Larry Hurtado has had several posts on Christology on his blog recently, focusing on subjects such as early devotion to Christ, the Gospel of John and the post-Easter perspective’s impact on Christology, and a response to various questions about topics such as pre-existence.

The Koinonia blog has two excerpts from the response book. One focuses on the New Testament depictions of Jesus as exercising divine functions, the other is more of an overview of points of agreement and disagreement.

Michael Kruger inexplicably believes that Ehrman’s view, that Jesus did not claim to be God, is harder to sustain than his own viewpoint, which reads later Christology back into the earliest texts in a manner that requires heavy-handed dogmatism and the use of a crowbar.
