Jesus’s Identification with the Marginalized and the Liminal


The first-century Judaic understanding of the identity and nature of the Messiah has been a much-debated topic among biblical scholars and preachers alike. So too has the messianic identity and nature of Jesus himself. Deboch informs these debates with fresh evidence outside traditional references to miracles, and supernatural identifications by demons and God himself. This book brings insightful new conclusions that transform our understanding of the biblical messianic identity revealed in the person of Jesus.
