"Witherington charts a bold course. Any christology, he argues, must begin with what Jesus said and thought about himself ... Whether one agrees with Witherington's conclusions or not ... his work is impressive. He demonstrates a familiarity with the relevant literature and makes his case cogently."
Charles B. Cousar, Interpretation
"A thoughtful, well-done, and important work that should stimulate further attempts to probe the interior self-understanding of Jesus."
