Simply Jesus : Who He Was, What He Did, Why it Matters

Who was – and is – Jesus of Nazareth? This is a simple question that every Christian must ask. A multitude of different voices and centuries of church tradition have made it difficult for us to see Jesus the way his own contemporaries saw him, and to understand him in the way that he wanted to be understood. This book places Jesus firmly within his own context, and shows how startlingly relevant he is to our own day as well. In this book, renowned New Testament scholar Tom Wright sets out to answer three simple but vital questions about Jesus: who was he, what did he do and why does it matter? The Jesus we might discover if we really looked is larger, more radical and more urgent than we ever imagined. And when we recognise Jesus, our next challenge is to follow him in his project of bringing God’s wise, healing rule to bear on his world.

Description

Simply Jesus : Who He Was, What He Did, Why it Matters

  • Trying to understand Jesus in the context of today?
  • Simply Jesus re-examines how the church should present the story and identity of Jesus of Nazareth to a world that desperately needs to hear his message
  • You’ll feel encouraged to share the message of the Gospel today
Tom Wright’s refreshing rediscovery of the Jesus of the Gospels shows how the church’s teachings about Jesus have become encrusted with doctrine, dogma and tradition. Sometimes it’s so hard to see what the New Testament really says about Jesus, there’s a danger that the impact of his message for today’s world might be completely lost.

‘Simply Jesus’ is for anyone concerned with how the Church presents the central personality of the Christian faith today. Life-long Christians, new church members and anyone ‘just looking’ will find what Tom Wright has to say about the Jesus we think we know surprising, unconventional and even controversial.

Simply Jesus re-examines how the church should present the story and identity of Jesus of Nazareth to a world that desperately needs to hear his message. Tom Wright engagingly explores how Jesus’ teaching is all about the Kingdom of God, how it’s revealed in his life and work, and why that message is as subversive today as it was in first century Palestine.
