The Son of God in the Roman World

Divine Sonship in its Social and Political Context

Michael Peppard

  • Reassesses a foundational concept of Christian theology
  • Invites scholars of the New Testament and early Christianity to re-examine their assumptions about divine sonship
  • Engages the most current international scholarship in Roman history
  • Draws from a very diverse range of ancient sources besides the Bible: imperial panegyric, legal documents, coins, inscriptions, papyrus contracts, rabbinic literature, early Christian homilies, and liturgical manuals
