In Jesus the Spirit Baptizer, globally recognized Pentecostal theologian Frank Macchia offers a Christology based on the premise that Pentecost is the culminating point of the identity and mission of Jesus. Drawing from both classical and contemporary sources, Macchia probes the fundamental connection between the person of Christ and the Holy Spirit, arguing that Christology properly explicates Jesus as the one who bears the Spirit so as to impart the Spirit to all flesh.
