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.

Das Christentum verehrt Jesus von Nazaret als sanften Hirten, dessen Reich nicht von dieser Welt sei. Aber entspricht dieses Bild der historischen Realität? Kann es den grausamen Kreuzestod plausibel erklären? Der amerikanische Religionswissenschaftler Reza Aslan meint: nein. Sein Buch, das in den USA für einen Skandal sorgte, versucht zu ergründen, wer Jesus war, bevor es das Christentum gab. Es ist das fesselnde, brillant erzählte Porträt eines Mannes voller Widersprüche, einer Epoche voll religiöser Inbrunst und blutiger Kämpfe und einer Weltreligion im Werden.

In his recent book How Jesus Became God: The Exaltation of a Jewish Preacher From Galilee historian Bart Ehrman explores a claim that resides at the heart of the Christian faith— that Jesus of Nazareth was, and is, God. According to Ehrman, though, this is not what the earliest disciples believed, nor what Jesus claimed about himself. The first response book to this latest challenge to Christianity from Ehrman, How God Became Jesus features the work of five internationally recognized biblical scholars. While subjecting his claims to critical scrutiny, they offer a better, historically informed account of why the Galilean preacher from Nazareth came to be hailed as “the Lord Jesus Christ.” Namely, they contend, the exalted place of Jesus in belief and worship is clearly evident in the earliest Christian sources, shortly following his death, and was not simply the invention of the church centuries later.

Two stories emerge when discussing How Jesus Became God: The Exaltation of a Jewish Preacher from Galilee by Bart D. Ehrman (New York: HarperOne, 2014). One is the rather dry academic exercise of historical Christology, which is the actual subject of the book, the other is the publisher's anticipation of controversy surrounding a new Ehrman book, simultaneously publishing a separate refutation. Please note that both books, Ehrman's How Jesus Became God, and the refutation, How God Became Jesus, are reviewed in this reader's guide.The first story, historical Christology, is Ehrman's roughly chronological presentation of how the man named Jesus of Nazareth came to be known as God almighty. Christology is the field of theology concerning the Person of the Christ. It recounts the philosophical gymnastics required when, based on the assumption of the physical resurrection, this very real flesh and blood man came to be known as God eternal. Ehrman takes us from the "lower" exaltation Christologies, where Jesus was raised to divinity by God, to the "higher" incarnation Christologies, where Jesus was God himself. This story is complicated by the early schism between the Jews and the Christians, doctrinal differences among Christians, and internal politics of the Roman Empire. While Ehrman's focus is on the intra-Christian debate, his book would have benefitted from a closer analysis of the Jewish-Christian schism and the broader socio-political context in which this debate took place. The second story is how HarperCollins, anticipating controversy, gave a group of orthodox Christian academics advance copies of How Jesus Became God, and with it an opportunity to publish a refutation simultaneously with the publication of Ehrman's book. Is this a publisher who wished to avoid the political controversy that Random House experienced (profitably) with the 2013 publication of Reza Aslan's Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth? Perhaps. More practically, it may be a publisher who wished to turn one sale into two. The refutation is reviewed in this guide, and can be purchased here. How God Became Jesus: The Real Origins of Belief in Jesus' Divine Nature---A Response to Bart D. Ehrman by Michael Bird, Craig Evans, Simon Gathercole, Charles Hill, and Chris Tilling (Zondervan 2014).This guide has three parts. Part I is a detailed discussion of How Jesus Became God, Part II is a survey of some of the early criticism of the book, including How God Became Jesus, and Part III is an independent criticism and discussion.SPOILER ALERT! This guide discusses many of Ehrman's observations and conclusions. If you are reading or intend to read How Jesus Became God, do yourself a favor, close this window, open a second tab, and purchase the book here. This reader's guide is meant to assist in reading How Jesus Became God critically, not as a substitute for reading the book. This reader's guide will not make sense unless you read it along with, or after reading, How Jesus Became God.Bible citations are to the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV).Patrick Goggins is the author of the best-selling Reader's Guide to Reza Aslan's Zealot, available here, and the Reader's Guide to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Jesus, available here.
