Publisher's Description

How Do You Visualize Christ?

When we think of Jesus Christ, we conjure up different images. Sometimes we see Christ as a sacrificial lamb, while at other times we see him as the conquering King of kings, the great I AM! Sometimes, we see Jesus as the gentle master-teacher or Rabbi, while other images picture a warrior ready to do battle with His enemies. Life Principles for Following Christ looks at Christ in both the Old and New testament (paradoxes and all) and shows how Scriptures unveils a complete portrait of rare value, a picture of God Himself, revealing His holiness, His love, His power, and His awesome plans and purpose for man. 

This latest installment in the Following God line of Bible studies can be seen as a collection of twelve portraits of Christ- portraits that reveal Jesus in His multifaceted Glory, view Him in His magnificent beauty, and allow us to experience Him in the magnitude of His Power. Each portrait expresses something unique about His person and His work. Each conveys an avenue of worship and surrender, a point of love and adoration, and a path of obedience to follow. 

In the pages of this book, you will find answers to such questions as:

* What was God's purpose in creating mankind in the first place? What role does Christ play in this purpose?

* For what purposes did the Angel of the Lord appear in the Old testament? What does the occasional, ancient appearance of this "Angel" have to do with Jesus of Nazareth?

* Are you looking to God as your Prophet, Priest, and King?

* Christ is pictured in various scriptures as the "Lamb of God." What does the picture of a lowly lamb have to do with the purposes and plans of God? How can God be the lamb and the Good Shepherd at the same time?

* What role did prayer play in Christ's earthly ministry? How does the praying ministry of Christ affect us today?

    A must have book for any Christian Library
    November 1, 2014
    If you are a homeschool parent, leader of a bible study group, preacher, pastor, missionary, or just a garden variety bookworm, this book is a must have in any Christian library. I was introduced to this book at a bible study, but now using it as part of my homeschool curriculum. This book gives you a comprehensive look at Jesus Christ our Savior and increases your knowledge plus faith in Christ our Savior.

    Best for small groups or individuals

    The study is intense and very rewarding for the one who is hungry to know more about how the Bible presents Jesus. The group or individual needs to set their own pace and it will work very well. Trying to go by a set schedule gets overwhelming because of the in depth studying. Our group, being larger perhaps than some, does set a schedule, and we have done a number of studies from the Following God Series. This particular study however, we are working very hard to keep up with. Still, the study is excellent and offers much for the serious student who also wants practical application.

    If you truly want a closer look at the Savior Jesus Christ, this study will give you exactly that. Each day you are taken to portions of Scripture to investigate the different faces of Jesus Christ every week: Prophet, Priest, Son of Man, Lamb of God, Rabbi, etc. etc. As you learn more about who Jesus is, you become increasingly aware of what He wants from you: a whole-hearted devotion; a child-like faith which seeks to glorify the Father; a follower who decides to fully trust in Him - in all areas of his life, not lean on his own means and understandings; all through the working of and surrender to the Holy Spirit. Oh what blessings are in store for you as you dive into the Bible with this "Following Christ" study!
