Have you ever wondered what the “Jesus” in the Bible was really like? Or heard conflicting things about how he acted or taught and wondered which was correct? Have you ever wanted to know the basics so that you could have an informed opinion on the topic?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this book is for you...
Fifty Things to Know About Jesus by Mark Francis offers an approach to Jesus that is based exclusively on the Bible and what it says about him. This isn’t an exhaustive list and it is not without its critics, but it will make you functionally literate on the topic of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Most books on Jesus Christ tell you to read the Bible to know him.
Although there's nothing wrong with that, and in fact it is the best way to get authoritative information, most people don’t do it. The other problem is that the Bible has been conflated with philosophical interpretations in the minds of many people. This can make it challenging to separate simple statements from their complicated exposition.
Based on knowledge from the world's leading experts, you can spend a lifetime studying Jesus and not get very far. That’s a fair statement, but the distance you can cover in the first course of study is pretty impressive all by itself.
In these pages you'll discover who Jesus said he is, what his goals in life were, how he went about accomplishing them and how it all turned out.
This book will help you get past the religious clutter and absurd statements about the Jesus in the Bible. It is intended to serve as a solid sounding board that accurately resonates with the man himself, allowing you to judge the authenticity of anything else you hear about him.
By the time you finish this book, you will know enough to decide if the Jesus in the Bible is worth your time or not. This isn’t an exhaustive list, but it is a solid introduction that will lay out the basic ideas in clear and unambiguous language. …. So grab YOUR copy today. You'll be glad you did.
