Jesus ahead of Pentecost reviews the background of Jesus' ministry from William P. Atkinson's Pentecostal point of view. this attitude impacts either his approach and the book's content material. when it comes to process, Atkinson places ahead a robust argument for taking a look rigorously at John's Gospel, in addition to the synoptic gospels, as a competent ancient resource for Jesus' lifestyles. And by way of content material, his major parts of research stick to key Pentecostal pursuits, summed up within the "foursquare" Pentecostal rubric of Jesus as savior, healer, baptizer within the Spirit, and soon-coming king. the image that emerges bargains clean insights into Jesus' existence: particularly, the symbolic that means Jesus invested within the feeding of the 5 thousand; the private price to Jesus of his method of therapeutic the ill; the involvement of God's Spirit in his lifestyles and within the lives of these round him; and, finally, his enigmatic predictions of his destiny coming. total, the learn is either academically rigorous and warmly enticing. it is going to entice an individual who's heavily attracted to Jesus, whether they are Pentecostal.

--William ok. Kay, Professor of Pentecostal reviews, college of Chester

"Written with readability and verve by way of a Pentecostal for Pentecostals, Atkinson bargains a hugely readable and inventive contribution to Jesus learn. attractive to Pentecostal non secular stories as analogues, Atkinson builds a hermeneutical bridge for the mind's eye to the Jesus culture. absolutely conscious that there's no such factor as value-free old enquiry, his Pentecostal grid isn't imposed yet generates questions round the Pentecostal foursquare gospel--Savior, Healer, Spirit baptizer, and soon-coming King. the result's studded with gems."
--Graham H. Twelftree, Charles L. Holman Professor of recent testomony and Early Christianity, PhD application Director, institution of Divinity, Regent University

"Using the Pentecostal foursquare gospel as his lens--Jesus as Savior, Healer, baptizer within the Spirit, and soon-coming King--Atkinson supplies a energetic but in addition educational and well-informed Pentecostal interpreting of the Gospel money owed of Jesus' ministry."
