Joshua Jipp, Messianic Theology of the New Testament
Dr. Joshua Jipp, associate professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, has written an important book entitled The Messianic Theology of the New Testament (Eerdmans, 2020). His particular focus is to survey and understand the royal messianism associated with the Davidic dynasty. He makes the point that there is no standardized, pre-existing view of the messiah at the time of Jesus; instead, there has been a robust “messianic discourse” that has been going on for hundreds of years centered on King David and his legacy.
