The Words and Works of Jesus Christ: A Study of the Life of Christ
Zondervan Academic, 4 oct. 2016 - 640 pagini
The life of Jesus Christ takes on fresh clarity and meaning in this masterful work by Dwight Pentecost. The words, the miracles, and overarching message of the Messiah come alive in flowing and detailed chronology, set against the cultural, political, and religious setting of his day. You'll gain new understanding of why Jesus came, how he operated, and what he accomplished. Above all, you'll acquire a deeper appreciation for the love that guided his path, beginning in a manger in Bethlehem, leading through three and a half years of ministry that ended abruptly at the cross on Golgotha, and blazing forth in eternal triumph at the resurrection. Drawing liberally on the works of others who have written about Christ, such as Alfred Edersheim, J. W. Shepherd, W. Graham Scroggie, and Frederick Faraar, Dr. Pentecost reveals in his own writing a familiarity with the subject that comes from years of teaching. Yet he writes, not as one who knows all there is to know about Christ, but with the restraint of one who knows that Jesus is to be worshiped and adored as the great King, and that no book can do more than begin to tell all the wonders of his being and his love.

If you want to dig deep verse-by-verse into the Gospels, this is the book for you. Great insights. The format is very academic, so it takes some time to get used to. Citiți recenzia completă

This is a harmonic study of the Gospels, much like older work of Shepard’s (Christ of the Gospels) work. It centers upon the life of Christ and relates each event found in the Gospels. It relates a ... Citiți recenzia completă
