Great Truths from Jesus' Conversations With Pharisees presents ten conversations of Jesus with the Pharisees and their scribes who were considered to be experts in the interpretation of the Old Testament Scriptures. The conversations reveal Jesus’ passionate attempts to connect with these leaders who opposed his teachings and his mission from the moment he arrived on the religious scene. While he conversed with the Pharisees, Jesus taught great truths about the Christian faith that continue to inform and inspire.
The author presents Jesus' conversations in dialog fashion, using fiction techniques to enliven the text while remaining true to the biblical account. The presentations take into account the cultural and political background of the period and places.
Following the account of each conversation are interactive learning exercises that can be completed individually or in a group setting. This book is a handy tool for group and individual Bible study.
