Many of us know a lot about Jesus’s earthly life—but we don’t often stop to think about the things he said and did beforehand, the things he’s saying and doing now, or the things he’ll say and do in the future. This book takes a big-picture approach. Who is the Son of God? Why did he choose to be born as Jesus? What did he accomplish during his time on earth? How will his return fulfill God’s plans for history? What does any of that have to do with our lives today? As you learn more about Jesus, may your love and appreciation for him increase and your life become a clearer reflection of his.
Produced by Third Millennium Ministries for a global, multilingual, evangelical audience, the books in the Christian Essentials series make highly vetted, master’s-level theology clear, personal, and accessible to a broad spectrum of readers.
