Want To Look at the Bible from a Different Perspective? Then you have come to the right book. Anybody can explain to you what certain passages of the Bible mean and how they apply to your daily life. However, not too often do you see it in a simple language that the average, common, 9-to-5 person can understand. The best part is, though, that the perspective comes not from a theologian or minister like other Christian books, but from an average Joe, or in this case, Jake, who happened to be inspired to write something for the average person.
If you’re a Christian, you know that Jesus took the sin of all mankind upon Himself, to offer redemption and everlasting life to those who believe in Him. But did you know that in His own time, the Jews expected the Messiah to be a military leader who would liberate them from Rome? Our current understanding of Jesus and His role was very different from that of His contemporaries and the first disciples. This accessible, compulsively readable book tells the story of Jesus’ life with different twists. You’ll be enthralled by Jesus’ teachings, appreciate the significance of His power to perform miracles, and dig deeper into the meaning of some of His best-known parables. You’ll see the connections between Jesus and the prophecies of the Old Testament. You’ll walk alongside His first disciples and become entangled in the plot that led to His arrest, trial, and death. But most of all, you’ll see that although Jesus was obedient to His father in heaven, he bucked convention in his life on Earth—from the Romans and the Sanhedrin to everyday Jews and sometimes even His close friends, Jesus was perceived as a rebel who broke new ground in faith and action. Whether you are new to your faith journey or revisiting a well-loved road, this compelling guide to Jesus’ life and times is the extra insight you need to spark your soul.
