You've heard of Jesus as Messiah, Prince of Peace, Lamb of God - but you probably haven't spent much time digging into the truths these titles reveal about Jesus. This book is designed to help you focus on the various facets of Jesus' person, life, and mission so that your spirit will be transformed by an enriched prayer life, new momentum in your worship, and new confidence in Jesus, that is, increased faith.
The study delves deep into the rich messianic prophecies of the Old Testament, and examines all the names, titles, descriptors, and metaphors in the Bible that refer to Jesus, grouping them by topic. A name would be Jesus, son of Joseph. Titles would include Rabbi, Messiah, Lord, King of kings, Son of Man, Son of God. Descriptors are functional, such as Savior and Redeemer. Metaphors are plentiful - Lion, Lamb, Shepherd, Cornerstone, Physician, Bread, Vine, the I Am. You'll examine dozens of core titles, with literally hundreds of variations.
At the close of each lesson you'll find songs to sing and prayers to pray. You'll be encouraged to embark on weekly exercises to put into practice actions suggested by the names and titles. By the end the study, you'll not only know more about Jesus, but, hopefully, know Him better experientially.
This book is intended for study as well as instruction, presented in 10 lessons. Helpful thought and discussion questions make it useful for personal enrichment and by small groups and classes. Extensive research contained in the footnotes makes it a goldmine for teachers and a boon to preachers involved in sermon preparation.
