Curious about the historical Jesus? Read this book. Find out what the best scholars say about him—in language anyone can understand. This book tells about Jesus from Nazareth, the human person, whom Christianity proclaims to be fully human, as human as you are. Jesus was born and grew up as a Jew. He lived in the Holy Land, which was ruled by the Roman Empire. He became a disciple of John the Baptist. After John died, Jesus returned to Galilee but not to his family, who thought him crazy. He walked the Galilean hills, met all kinds of people, ate with them, and argued with them. As he traveled, he told people about God’s presence in their lives every day, as they kneaded bread, planted vineyards, went to court, sought healing, and prayed.
This book helps you understand Jesus as a man: what he taught, how he lived, and why he was crucified. It discusses his resurrection—all the biblical depictions. It describes his ascension as the New Testament tells it and as we must understand it in the universe that we inhabit. It also suggests why his life-style and message matter to you now, and what you can do to become more like him. It will help you answer the question we so often ask, What would Jesus do?
It offers options for living in the secular world. It discusses possible choices of church. This book is about Jesus, and why he matters to you today.
