In Following Jesus, the Servant King, Jonathan Lunde presents a biblical theology of discipleship that gives the "big picture" of God's relationship with humanity. In biblical terms, Jesus is the King who demands righteous obedience from his followers, and Jesus is the Servant who provides the grace that enables this obedience. Lunde presents a view of Christian discipleship that is grounded in an informed Christology of Jesus, the Servant King.
