Is Jesus the Son of Man who comes from God as only God can come from God? Or Jesus is merely a man attested by God?

“Identification with God is not tantamount to identification as God”

So argues New Testament scholar Daniel Kirk argues in his new book A Man Attested by God: The Human Jesus of the Synoptic Gospels. Identification with God, Daniel argues, is not tantamount to identification as God.

We talked with Daniel a few months ago and the audio got lost in the thicket of files to be edited. Here it is. Enjoy.

Hosted by Dr. JR Daniel Kirk, #LectioCast aims to get preachers’ jumpstarted on their prepcrastination by honing in on issues and themes in the scripture passages assigned for the upcoming Sunday and to do so in a way that is sharp, practical, and seasoned with a bit of snark.

Daniel accuses me of skirting wrath in the lectionary readings for Advent 2, but I think it’s just a good honest dose of Barth.

Daniel credits me with a “fascinating” interpretation of the Matthew 24 lection. “Fascinating” is most likely NT scholar speak for “incorrect” but I think it’ll preach all the same.
