Elledge has reworked his Ph.D. dissertation (xii) for this volume and he “addresses an issue in Biblical texts often neglected by scholarship” (back cover). Elledge “provides a fresh perspective on the divine use of the third person” and his analysis contributes substantially “to the ongoing discussion of Jesus’ divinity and self-understanding” (back cover). As a dissertation, it starts with an introduction to the study and concludes with the findings that were made. The other chapters inspect illeism in classical antiquity, the OT, ancient Near Eastern texts and the NT.
