Product Description

Are there new discoveries about the life of Jesus? It seems everyone is rewriting the history and life of Jesus to suit their needs, making Him into something He was not. This fresh investigation into the life of Jesus has scholarly backing and seeks to clear the baggage and allow you to see Jesus for who he really was. You will be able to look beyond the common thoughts of the familiar stories about Jesus and understand their true contexts and emerge with new understanding of the most significant life that was ever lived.

Editorial Reviews

"Fills the need for an up-to-date, well-arranged, and interestingly written life of Christ of moderate length... should be a standard textbook for many years to come... masterfully organized and reverently written."
"Some works on the life of Christ... emphasize the doctrinal aspects of the life of our Lord, others the historical, and still others the geographical. ...a balanced blend of all of these... If a person is choosing one book on this subject for his library, this should be the one."
"Students and pastors can read the work with profit, even if they may differ on some details of interpretation."
'Many careful explanations and insights make this a worthy work for pastors and students... The inclusion of valuable recent historical and archaeological discoveries, and excellent indexes make this a useful and helpful study tool.'

    This book should accompany any serious and truthful study of the Gospels. Insightful and honest background information on the chronological and social context life of Christ helps set the stage for Christs mission and also paints a more vivid picture as to what is happening within the text of Scripture.
