Jesus the Jew, Christ the King unites biblical scholarship with established theology. Oftentimes, scholars distinguish between the “historical Jesus” and the “Christ of faith,” suggesting that Christian belief has elevated Jesus of Nazareth from the common life of an itinerant Jewish rabbi to a divine figure akin to the heroes of Greco-Roman culture.

In keeping with Christian tradition, James Mikołajczyk affirms Jesus as the only begotten Son of God and, moreover, the fulfillment of scriptural Israel.
