Who Do My Opponents say that I am?

The conflict between Jesus and the Jewish leadership two millennia ago was grounded in fundamentally different perceptions of who he was and the authority he possessed for what he was doing. Either he was a blasphemer or the agent of God destined for a unique exaltation/vindication. Either he was a deceiver of the people or the Son of the Blessed One. The claims Jesus apparently made were so significant and the following he gathered was so great that a judgment about him could not be avoided.
By Darrell L. Bock,…Jesus as Blasphemer

Also in the book you’ll find essay’s by:

Michael F. Bird…Jesus as Law-Breaker

Dwight D. Sheets…Jesus as Demon-Possessed

Joseph B. Modica…Jesus as Glutton and Drunkard

James F. McGrath…Jesus as False Prophet

Lynn H. Cohich…Jesus as King of the Jews

Scot McKnight…Jesus as (‘Illegitimate Son’)
