The Promise of the Father: Jesus and God in the New Testament

Publisher's Description

Marianne Thompson surveys the portrayal of God as father in the Old Testament and Second Temple Judaism, in the ministry of Jesus, in the synoptic gospels, and in the writings of Paul and John. Thompson argues that, rather than rooting the image of God in a debate about gender, “father” terminology really identifies an ancestor who grants inheritance.
