One scholar famously referred to the Gospels of the New Testament as passion narratives with long introductions. Such a view, however, tends to minimize the theological importance of Jesus’ life and ministry before his death. In today’s podcast, Dr. Brandon D. Crowe will balance the scales here to discuss his recent book, The Last Adam: A Theology of the Obedient Life of Jesus in the Gospels (Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2017).

Brandon Crowe is associate professor of New Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia; he received his PhD at the University of Edinburgh. Brandon is the author of several books, including The Message of the General Epistles in the History of Redemption: Wisdom from James, Peter, John and Jude (P&R, 2015), and The Obedient Son: Deuteronomy and Christology in the Gospel of Matthew (de Gruyter, 2012).


L. Michael Morales is Professor of Biblical Studies at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, and the author of The Tabernacle Pre-Figured: Cosmic Mountain Ideology in Genesis and Exodus (Peeters, 2012), and Who Shall Ascend the Mountain of the Lord?: A Biblical Theology of Leviticus (IVP Academic, 2015).
