“The English version of Jesus im Heilsdrama: Entwurf einer biblischen Erlosungslehre (1990), this volume first considers Jesus in the context of paradox and drama, and then tells Jesus’s story in five ‘acts’: the dawning of the kingdom of God, the rejection of the kingdom of God and judgment, the bringer of salvation brought to judgment, the resurrection of the Son as judgment of the heavenly Father, and the Holy spirit and the new gathering. Finally it reflects on redemption as judgment and sacrifice, the revelation of the triune God in the redemption event, and the drama of Christian life. Schwager, professor of dogmatics and ecumenical theology at the University of Innsbruck, is also the author of Jesus of Nazareth: How He Understood His Life (1998).”
