Editorial Reviews


"The articles are carefully written, edited, and indexed, and they end with a bibliography. They will lead serious readers (including nonspecialists) through various issues, including thorny ones, to plausible, defensible understandings. Highly recommended."

-- P. L. Redditt, CHOICE, March 2014

"[A]n excellent resource for those who really want to go deeper into the Gospels and the Messiah to whom they faithfully witness."

-- Rev. Dr. Bob Robinson, Latimer Fellowship, 2015

"The IVP Dictionaries were an instant classic when they began to appear over two decades ago. They are inevitably the first volumes I turn to for current discussions on a variety of New Testament topics. Written by critical scholars who have an evangelical faith commitment, they provide quick yet comprehensive access to a myriad of topics of interest to students of the New Testament. The second edition of the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels continues the tradition of accessible scholarship: it includes superb articles, a good number of which are written by cutting-edge scholars on their respective topics. The list of contributors is a veritable who's who of evangelical Gospels scholarship. I enthusiastically welcome this revised edition and will keep it within easy reach for trustworthy entrées into the world of the Evangelists and their Lord."

-- Daniel B. Wallace, professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary, and executive director, Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts

"Twenty years ago IVP began its groundbreaking series of dictionaries on large segments of the Bible with an outstanding volume on Jesus and the Gospels. To keep current with scholarship, the articles have now been completely reworked and updated. Very few articles are written by the people who wrote them originally, a number of new entries have been added and a few deleted, and the emphasis on the distinctives of the four Evangelists is even greater than before. The contributors represent an 'all-star' cast of contemporary, largely evangelical scholars, with noticeably greater representation by women and minorities. No serious student of Scripture will want to be without this volume."

-- Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary

"The editors have matched the most important topics on the most important subject in the world with the people best qualified to write on them. Each article in this wonderful Dictionary is, if not an education, then an online course in itself."

-- Kevin J. Vanhoozer, research professor of systematic theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Nourished especially by the evangelical tradition and yet well informed by wider debates and perspectives, this extensively updated edition of the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels is sure to continue the success of the first edition in providing for its readers clear, scholarly guidance on the themes, characters and major hermeneutical issues that one meets in reading the four Gospels. Its clear and accessible arrangement, supporting bibliographies and substantial treatments of its chosen topics render the Dictionary an invaluable resource for beginning students and established scholars alike."

-- Murray Rae, professor of theology at the University of Otago, NZ

"Since its initial publication, the Dictionary of Jesus as the Gospels has been a key reference work that I've recommended often, and in this revised and updated edition it will surely continue to have my recommendation. It is a handy desk reference for scholars, and an informative introduction and overview of a multitude of topics for students and general readers."

-- Larry W. Hurtado, professor emeritus, University of Edinburgh

"With careful attention to the historical, literary and theological dimensions of nearly two hundred topics (plus up-to-date bibliographies), this group of distinguished scholars of Jesus and the Gospels sheds new light and offers perceptive insight on every page. Like its predecessor volume, this readable and reliable dictionary will be eminently useful to students, preachers, teachers and scholars for many years to come."

-- Michael J. Gorman, Raymond E. Brown Professor of Biblical Studies and Theology, St. Mary's Seminary University, Baltimore

"This new edition of the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, made by a star-studded list of contributors, contains a wealth of material that scholars, seminarians, pastors and laypeople will not be able to find anywhere else so conveniently. The editorial decision to focus on substantial articles allows an unusual depth to discussions. An already classic dictionary is now set to become a new classic."

-- Peter J. Williams, warden, Tyndale House, Cambridge

"For over a decade now, I have assigned my NT Introduction students articles from the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels. It has become a standard, and very popular, reference work on the subject. I am very pleased to see that now we have a second edition of this useful tool so that a further generation of Bible students can benefit. Not only do I highly recommend this volume, I require my students to read it!"

-- Ben Witherington III, Amos Professor for Doctoral Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary, and author of A Week in the Life of Corinth

"This dictionary splendidly succeeds at giving a snapshot of scholarly evangelical assessment of Jesus and Gospels studies circa the years leading up to its publication date. . . . no single volume can cover all that might and should be said about Jesus, the Gospels, our knowledge of them, and their implications for us and our world (cf. John 21:25). Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels comes as close as could be hoped and deserves a wide usage."

-- Robert W. Yarbrough, Themelios, April 2015, 40:1

"Like its predecessor, this is an excellent reference tool for scholars and students alike."

-- European Journal of Theology, 26:1, 2017 --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
