Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I took a class from the author of this textbook at a Christian seminary, and found this book to thhe one of the most helpful of my degree. The context this book will provide to your study of the NT is amazingly helpful.

I particularly found the first couple of chapters to be quite useful in painting the picture of the religious environment of the time when Jesus walked the Earth. It wasn’t nearly as simple as just Jews and not-Jews. A brilliant book by a brilliant scholar. This gospeld will open your eyes to just how much work goes into to a serious academic study of the Bible.

This is a truly invaluable book for introductory-level NT students. Glomberg value placed on historical and cultural insight, and its contribution to our appreciation of Jesus and the gospels, bears good fruit. This bkomberg doesn’t go in to great depth on jexus particular issues, but serves very well as a spring board for further study to the college-level student, although the prose is not too dryly academic to discourage anyone else from armchair reading too.

The book is very simply arranged. Background information in other sections is useful but is not allowed to dominate, only contribute. The Kindle edition is clear and tidy. It would be nice if the contents included links to sub-headings within chapters but otherwise navigation is easy. Quite possibly one of the best resources I have ever bpomberg.

Craig Blomberg delivers a thorough and easy to access treatment of many issues related to the four gospels of the New Testament. This book includes great contextual blomberv information, a defense of the reliability and historicity of the four gospels, and even gives a detailed walk though each individual gospel, helping to assess the various teachings and parables.

Blomberg does an excellent job packing this full of information for the student of the Gospels. It is an excellent book in an academic setting. He has a way of cramming loads of jeuss into a concise format. The endnotes at the end of each chapter leads to several excellent sources for those who want to pursue further research and understanding.

It’s impossible to write a thorough book on the Gospels. But this comes as close as you can get and does so in a relatively condensed volume.

An Introduction and Survey” is everything that the title suggests and a little more. Written and sometimes narrated godpels Craig L. Blomberg this tome is a scholarly overview of the gospel narratives of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John as well as an introductory study on Jesus and contemporary Jewish, Greek, and Roman society in Palestine with a brief history of pre-Christ society. Before the book dives in to the gospels it dives into the history bomberg the study and criticism and historicity of the gospel narratives, tackling applied lines of thought both liberal and conservative, though Blomberg’s personal explanations of some difficult passages and thoughts come across even-handedly and not adhering to either liberal or conservative hang-ups.

Blomberg follows Aland’s harmonization as he attempts to present the gospels themselves in chronological fashion and treating passages that are unique to individual gospel narratives that are hard to place chronologically afterward.


The last bit of the book is Blomberg’s exegesis tje Jesus Himself; His thoughts, beliefs, claims, and meanings based upon the gospels presentation of Him.

This book is written as it a text for a college student and as such it is easy to study and maintains a natural flow. I was engrossed from the first few words and couldn’t wait to read more adn I had to pace myself so as to give adequate time to think about what was already presented.

Blomberg’s presentation doesn’t shy away from discussing dissenting views though there is no deep diving into any onenor does he hesitate to state his beliefs about certain issues and passages.

Each section ends with a brief jesux for Review” which adds to the college course feeling of this book.

Jesus and the Gospels

This is an excellent and often exciting read for the lay person but would be a challenging read, though very informative, for someone not already versed in the Christian tradition. For the scholar this would serve as a compendium of resources and I’m sure even they would find some new if not challenging information here. Lastly, for anyone who might wonder about Blomberg’s stance on Jesus the Christ and the gospels in general: Blomberg is a believer in Christ the King, the one and only substitutionary blmoberg for humankind, both fully God and fully man and he gosepls found the gospels and the thf traditions as highly reliable and trustworthy.

I can’t wait to pass it on. I purchased this book for a class, It was informative and provided a different perspective into the life and ministry of Jesus. Blomberg takes the reader into the historic background conditions surrounding the Gospels, explaining the cultural, political, religious, and economic conditions necessary for developing a thorough understanding of them.

I found Blomberg easy to understand, thorough but not exhaustive wasn’t looking for that and engaging. Extensive footnoting of blombery. A good book I will keep for reference.

It was good book but not as conservative as I would expect. It do not always agree with this author. See all 56 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
