Additional books by Frederick BorschThe Son of Man in Myth and History
New Testament scholars offer different theories regarding a life-setting in which the use of the Son of Man designation could have developed and rooted itself so deeply in the gospel traditions. There is still no agreement. The radical proposal of this book looks to the baptizing sectarian groups of which Jesus was arguably at one time a part. Walter Wink writes, "Frederick Houk Borsch is one of the few to have recognized that ‘there may be something almost archetypal about the basic conception involved’ in the son-of-the-man figure." (London:SCM Press/Philadelphia:Westminster Press, 1967; Wipf & Stock, 2008)
The Christian and
Gnostic Son of Man
Power in Weakness: New Hearing for Gospel Stories of Healing and Discipleship [Also an audio book]* "We experience the healing of a dumb man from within the consciousness of the tormented victim. We climb inside the skin of Andrew and feel his smug contempt for pagans and Gentiles, and his impatience with the Syrophoenician woman. With the flick of the writer’s pen, we are that desperate woman. Served up with substantial biblical and theological commentary and laced with engaging experiences from the author’s life, these stories bridge the gap between past history and contemporary interests and invite us to further study and reflection." Jerry K. Robbins. ". . . an exceptional story-teller" John Stone Jenkins. (Philadelphia:Fortress Press, 1983; New edition, 2008)
