A book that challenges the commonly understood ‘quiet’ Jesus that we learn about in Sunday School – this will challenge any reader who thinks Jesus was a soft spoken man who minced his words.
He not only told people to “go and sin no more” – he came face-to-face and toe-to-toe with the self proclaimed religious leaders of the day. Proving over and over that they were working to gain only man’s respect, he was not intimidated by their heavy-handed tactics and Jesus let them know this in no uncertain words.
Confronting those who would presume to be the only ones that could understand the scriptures and who interpreted the scriptures to their own advantage, he never backed away from a confrontation. He was a full-force, ‘in your face’ Savior.
Check out this book and see just how powerful he was. He not only saw the infirmities of the flesh, but he also saw into a person’s heart. Seeing repentant faith – he healed the body and forgave sins.
Excellent look at Jesus.
Powerful, thought-provoking and expository. This book should challenge all church leaders to bring the true character of Jesus to their congregations. He was one that did not sit idly by and sing “Jesus Loves you” when the gauntlet was thrown down. He was the Son of God – Just how powerful is that statement in your own life?
