The Historic Mission of Jesus A Constructive Re-Examination of the Eschatological Teaching in the Synoptic Gospels

by C. J. Cadoux

The Historic Mission of Jesus A Constructive Re-Examination of the Eschatological Teaching in the Synoptic Gospels Synopsis

This volume of knowledge and scholarship presents the Synoptic evidence on Jesus' conception of the Kingdom of God and of his own mission in relation to it, and discusses its significance with special reference to his eschatological views. Cadoux holds that the teaching of Jesus contains elements to all appearance incompatible with beliefs widely recognised as indisputably true. He extends the accepted idea of the limitation of the knowledge of Jesus to this great sphere, and declares that this limitation extended to questions of moral and religious importance, even to those affecting the character of God.
