`God Crucified` and other studies on the New Testament`s Christology of Divine Identity

Is the Christian belief that Jesus is Divine incompatible with the strong Jewish monotheism of the earliest Christ-believers?

The basic thesis of the heart of this important book on New Testament Christology is that the worship of Jesus as God was seen by the early Christ-believers as fully compatible with their Jewish monotheism.  These Jewish believers in Jesus, argues Bauckham, believed that their Lord participated in the divine identity of the one God of Israel.
