I read from ‘Christology in the Making: An Inquiry into the Origins of the Doctrine of the Incarnation‘ by professor James D.G. Dunn, pp 29-30.
This text is designed for students and academics studying the doctrine of the incarnation. Dunn clarifies in detail the beginnings of the belief in Christ as the Son of God and discusses the historical context of such beliefs.
He suggests reasons why the famous ‘I am’ statements attributed to Jesus are almost certainly not historical.
