This is Geerdhus Vos' classic critical study on Jesus as the Messiah, and how this relates to the Christology of the New Testament. In The Self-Disclosure of Jesus (1926, first edition), subtitled The Modern Debate about the Messianic Consciousness, distinguished Biblical scholar and (Reformed) theologian Vos analyzes the Gospel evidence in light of growing critical divide (already beginning in the early 20th century) between the Jewish Jesus of history and the Christ of the New Testament (esp. of Pauline theology) and early Christian belief. How did Jesus understand his own identity as the Messiah, and do the Gospels—especially the developed Christology of the Gospel of John—accurately reflect this? All of the key Gospel passages are explored, effectively divided into chapters that clearly highlight all of the major aspects of Messianic thought and belief, in relation to Jesus. It is a moderate-critical and Evangelical approach to the subject that remains just as timely and important today.
