DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A famed historian once noted that, regardless of what you think of him personally, Jesus Christ stands as the central figure in the history of Western civilization. A man violently rejected by some and passionately worshipped by others, Jesus remains as polarizing as ever. But most people still know very little about who he really was, why he was really here, or what he really claimed. Intended as a succinct introduction to Jesus’s life, words, and enduring significance, Who Is Jesus? offers non-Christians and new Christians alike a compelling portrait of Jesus Christ. Ultimately, this book encourages readers to carefully consider the history-shaping life and extraordinary teachings of the greatest man who ever lived.

Editor: WestBow Press
Pages: 120
ISBN: 9781512725797
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Too many people want to classify Jesus as someone he wasn’t. Jesus was either the Son of God or a madman. There is, however, more evidence that he was the Son of God than there is evidence that anyone or anything exists on earth today. Jesus made it clear to everyone that accepting him as Savior and Lord was the only way to achieve God’s acceptance. He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the light. No one comes to the Father except through me.” In his book Thinking about Jesus: God’s Attempt to Save Mankind, author John F. Holman provides evidence that encourages people to think about Jesus and what he did and said while he was on earth. With that knowledge in hand, individuals are in a position to either accept him as Savior and Lord or realize the consequences. God sent Jesus to show us the Way. Thinking about Jesus: God’s Attempt to Save Mankind shows us that path to God.

Jesus and the Chaos of History

Jesus and the Chaos of History
Author: James Crossley
Release: 2015-02-26
Editor: Oxford University Press, USA
Pages: 248
ISBN: 9780199570584
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

In Jesus and the Chaos of History, James Crossley looks at the way the earliest traditions about Jesus interacted with a context of social upheaval and the ways in which this historical chaos of the early first century led to a range of ideas which were taken up, modified, ignored, and reinterpreted in the movement that followed. Crossley examines how the earliest Palestinian tradition intersected with social upheaval and historical change and how accidental, purposeful, discontinuous, contradictory, and implicit meanings in the developments of ideas appeared in the movement that followed. He considers the ways seemingly egalitarian and countercultural ideas co-exist with ideas of dominance and power and how human reactions to socio-economic inequalities can end up mimicking dominant power. In this case, the book analyzes how a Galilean "protest" movement laid the foundations for its own brand of imperial rule. This evaluation is carried out in detailed studies on the kingdom of God and "Christology," "sinners" and purity, and gender and revolution.

The Footprints of Jesus Twelve in Early Christian Traditions

Release: 1985
Editor: Peter Lang Pub Incorporated
Pages: 148
ISBN: UOM:39015019344236
Language: en
Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The sudden disappearance of the twelve apostles from the pages of post-Easter Christian history is in B.H. Streeter's judgment 'one of the great mysteries of history'. The purpose of this publication is to shed some new light on this mystery and to examine, on the basis of the available New Testament evidence, the claim that the earthly Jesus himself had appointed the twelve. The book opens (Part I) with a redaction-critical inquiry into those New Testament writings which advance this claim, touching on both the origin and setting of the source materials used by the evangelists to support it. The question of how and why firmly established traditions are still suggestive enough to inspire visions entailing their reformulation on new levels of meaning is treated in this part. The book goes on (Part II) to discuss the role played by the symbolic number twelve in Hellenistic and Jewish milieux, concluding with the description of the substance and power added to early Christianity by the use of this prestigious number. The publication will be of benefit mostly to specialists and graduate students interested in deriving historical knowledge from religious materials.

Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Who is Jesus Christ? You've never met Him in person, and you don't know anyone who has. But there is a way to know who he is. How? Jesus Christ - the divine Person revealed in the Bible - has a unique excellence and a spiritual beauty that speaks directly to our souls and says, "Yes, this is truth." It's like seeing the sun and knowing that it is light, or tasting honey and knowing that it is sweet. The depth and complexity of Jesus shatter our simple mental frameworks. He baffled proud scribes with his wisdom but was understood and loved by children. He calmed a raging storm with a word but would not get himself down from the cross. Look at the Jesus of the Bible. Keep your eyes open, and fill them with the portrait of Jesus in God's Word. Jesus said, "If anyone's will is to do God's will, He will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority." Ask God for the grace to do His will, and you will see the truth of His Son. John Piper has written this book in the hope that all will see Jesus for who he really is and will come to enjoy him above all else.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Jesus Christ is arguably the most famous man who ever lived. His image adorns countless churches, icons, and paintings. He is the subject of millions of statues, sculptures, devotional objects and works of art. Everyone can conjure an image of Jesus: usually as a handsome, white man with flowing locks and pristine linen robes. But what did Jesus really look like? Is our popular image of Jesus overly westernized and untrue to historical reality? This question continues to fascinate. Leading Christian Origins scholar Joan E. Taylor surveys the historical evidence, and the prevalent image of Jesus in art and culture, to suggest an entirely different vision of this most famous of men. He may even have had short hair.
