Kegan Chandler – Early High Christology – Did Jesus think he was God?
Kegan Chandler works us through the answers from the “Early High Christology Club” to the question “Did Jesus know he was God”? We discover that there is not one consistent view among these scholars (like Michael F. Bird, N.T. Wright, and Larry Hurtado) who want to answer “yes” to the question, and that they fail to explain either the Jesus of the gospels or orthodox tradition.
In contrast, the unitarian option, which emphasizes Jesus’ self-awareness as God’s human agent, appears to be not only the best and most conservative interpretative option for the gospel data, but the only viable answer in light of what we know about Jewish messianic expectations in the first century, and Jewish understanding of the terms “prophet” and “messiah” in that historical context.
