Jesus before Pentecost studies the history of Jesus’ ministry from William P. Atkinson’s Pentecostal perspective. This perspective affects both his method and the book’s content. In terms of method, Atkinson puts forward a strong argument for looking carefully at John’s Gospel, as well as the synoptic gospels, as a reliable historical source for Jesus’ life. In terms of content, his main areas of study follow key Pentecostal interests, summed up in the “foursquare” Pentecostal rubric of Jesus as Saviour, Healer, Baptiser in the Spirit, and Soon-Coming King. The picture that emerges offers fresh insights into Jesus’ life: notably, the symbolic meaning Jesus invested in the feeding of the five thousand; the effect that Jesus’ approach to healing the sick had on Him; the involvement of God’s Spirit in His life and in the lives of those around Him; and, lastly, His enigmatic predictions of his future coming. Overall, the study is both academically rigorous and warmly engaging. It will appeal to anyone who is interested in Jesus, regardless of whether or not they are associated with the Pentecostal tradition.
