  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • New York Times bestselling author and Bible expert Bart Ehrman reveals how Jesus’s divinity became dogma in the first
    few centuries of the early church.

    The claim at the heart of the Christian faith is that Jesus of Nazareth was, and is, God. But this is not what the
    original disciples believed during Jesus’s lifetime—and it is not what Jesus claimed about himself. How Jesus Became God
    tells the story of an idea that shaped Christianity, and of the evolution of a belief that looked very different in the
    fourth century than it did in the first.

    A master explainer of Christian history, texts, and traditions, Ehrman reveals how an apocalyptic prophet from the
    backwaters of rural Galilee crucified for crimes against the state came to be thought of as equal with the one God
    Almighty, Creator of all things. But how did he move from being a Jewish prophet to being God? In a book that took eight
    years to research and write, Ehrman sketches Jesus’s transformation from a human prophet to the Son of God exalted to
    divine status at his resurrection. Only when some of Jesus’s followers had visions of him after his death—alive
    again—did anyone come to think that he, the prophet from Galilee, had become God. And what they meant by that was not at
    all what people mean today.

    Written for secular historians of religion and believers alike, How Jesus Became God will engage anyone interested in
    the historical developments that led to the affirmation at the heart of Christianity: Jesus was, and is, God.
