Introduces and explores one of the key debates in Pauline studies – the meaning of the Greek phrase ‘pistis christou’ (faith of Christ). Is it our ‘faith in Christ’ or ‘Christ’s faith(fulness)’ to God? Much hangs on how we answer that question.

The Faith of Jesus Christ represents an attempt to grapple with one of the most perplexing problems in Pauline studies, namely that of the meaning of the phrase 'pistis christou'. Is Paul speaking of our faith in Christ or of Christ's own faithfulness towards God? A lot hangs on which way we answer that question. Here some of the biggest names in contemporary NT scholarship join forces (and lock horns) to shed new light on the question by presenting rigourous exegetical studies from both sides of the debate. It also brings creative new proposals to bear on the problem, and places the discussion in the wider spectrum of historical, biblical and systematic theology.

This book is the most penetrating and comprehensive attempt to date to grapple with the significance of Jesus' faithfulness and obedience for Christian salvation and the extent to which it is represented in key biblical texts.
