📒Jesus Christ Disciplemaker ✍ Bill Hull
📝Jesus Christ Disciplemaker Book Synopsis : Thomas doubted. Peter denied. Matthew had a shady past. And most of Jesus' disciples had trouble understanding his true message and mission at times. How did Jesus take lowly fishermen and tax collectors and turn them into some of the most influential men that ever lived? And how can modern church leaders empower regular church members to meet their potential as servants of God? In Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker, Hull outlines Christ's methods in training his twelve disciples and presents a biblical pattern that emulates Christ's model for reaching the lost. By taking readers through four growth phases-evangelizing, establishing, equipping, and leading-Hull shows how these principles can be adapted for any discipler. Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker is the perfect resource for pastors and church leaders who want to learn how to help others grow in God's service.

📒Jesus Christ Superstar ✍ Robert Price

📒The Jesus Quest ✍ Ben Witherington

📒The Faith Of Jesus Christ ✍ Richard B. Hays
📝The Faith of Jesus Christ Book Synopsis : In this important study Hays argues against the mainstream that any attempt to account for the nature and method of Paul's theological language must first reckon with the centrality of narrative elements in his thought. Through an in-depth investigation of Galatians 3:1-4:11, Hays shows that the framework of Paul's thought is neither a system of doctrines nor his personal religious experience but the "sacred story" of Jesus Christ.
📒Jesus ✍ Bart D. Ehrman
📝Jesus Book Synopsis : In this highly accessible discussion, Bart Ehrman examines the most recent textual and archaeological sources for the life of Jesus, along with the history of first-century Palestine, drawing a fascinating portrait of the man and his teachings. Ehrman shows us what historians have long known about the Gospels and the man who stands behind them. Through a careful evaluation of the New Testament (and other surviving sources, including the more recently discovered Gospels of Thomas and Peter), Ehrman proposes that Jesus can be best understood as an apocalyptic prophet--a man convinced that the world would end dramatically within the lifetime of his apostles and that a new kingdom would be created on earth. According to Ehrman, Jesus' belief in a coming apocalypse and his expectation of an utter reversal in the world's social organization not only underscores the radicalism of his teachings but also sheds light on both the appeal of his message to society's outcasts and the threat he posed to Jerusalem's established leadership.
📒Jesus Christ ✍ Donald G. Bloesch

📒Who Is Jesus ✍ Leander Keck
📝Who is Jesus Book Synopsis : Keck clarifies the difference between the way Jesus is presented in the gospels and the way critical historians portray him. He then looks at Jesus as a first-century Jew, conscious of the difficulty and importance of recovering Jesus' particular form of Jewishness. He then considers how Jesus' mission was energised by his grasp of the kingdom of God, contending that Jesus clearly expressed a conviction that God's definitive reign was impending and would transform the lives of those who responded affirmatively to his message. He goes on to probe the meaning of the crucifixion of Jesus, in light of the biblical understanding of God's holiness, a theme largely neglected today. He concludes by looking at Jesus' role in the moral life of the Christian community.
📝Jesus Book Synopsis : A stunning picture book portrays the life of Jesus of Nazareth, from his birth in Bethlehem, to his baptism and temptation, to his death on the cross, his resurrection, and his ascension.

📒The Incarnate God ✍ Catherine Aslanoff
📝The Incarnate God Book Synopsis :
📒Lord Jesus Christ ✍ Larry W. Hurtado
📝Lord Jesus Christ Book Synopsis : This outstanding book provides an in-depth historical study of the place of Jesus in the religious life, beliefs, and worship of Christians from the beginnings of the Christian movement down to the late second century. Lord Jesus Christ is a monumental work on earliest Christian devotion to Jesus, sure to replace Wilhelm Bousset s Kyrios Christos (1913) as the standard work on the subject. Larry Hurtado, widely respected for his previous contributions to the study of the New Testament and Christian origins, offers the best view to date of how the first Christians saw and reverenced Jesus as divine. In assembling this compelling picture, Hurtado draws on a wide body of ancient sources, from Scripture and the writings of such figures as Ignatius of Antioch and Justin to apocryphal texts such as the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Truth. Hurtado considers such themes as early beliefs about Jesus divine status and significance, but he also explores telling devotional practices of the time, including prayer and worship, the use of Jesus name in exorcism, baptism and healing, ritual invocation of Jesus as Lord, martyrdom, and lesser-known phenomena such as prayer postures and the curious scribal practice known today as the nomina sacra. The revealing portrait that emerges from Hurtado s comprehensive study yields definitive answers to questions like these: How important was this formative period to later Christian tradition? When did the divinization of Jesus first occur? Was early Christianity influenced by neighboring religions? How did the idea of Jesus divinity change old views of God? And why did the powerful dynamics of early beliefs and practices encourage people to make the costly move of becoming a Christian? Boasting an unprecedented breadth and depth of coverage — the book speaks authoritatively on everything from early Christian history to themes in biblical studies to New Testament Christology — Hurtado s Lord Jesus Christ is at once significant enough that a wide range of scholars will want to read it and accessible enough that general readers interested at all in Christian origins will also profit greatly from it.

📒Jesus On Divorce ✍ Rev. John C. Martin
📝Jesus on Divorce Book Synopsis : Reverend John Martin, III diligently and faithfully expounds upon the most profound words of the Christ. You will find John Martin loyal to Jesus and faithful to Matthew’s god-breathed text. It is as if Reverend Martin forces the text through the winepress and firings forth a rich glass of royal vintage that firings honor to the King of vineyard. Pastor Martin is faithful to his maxim that "theology is practical" Maintaining His high view of the church and his love for the Lord’s sheep, John Martin imparts the Lord’s Prayer and the Beatitudes in a manner that exhorts the Christian, "This is the way, walk ye in it" Is Martin a moralist as so many who take on these passages? God forbid Martin is no moralist, He presents the beatitudes of Jesus as the characteristics of those who have partaken of the new birth. I have heard these sermons. They are robust and powerful. Reverend Martin has the fire of Knox, the precision of Calvin, the compassion of Luther, the humility of Edwards, and the potency of Rushdoony. May our gracious Lord Bless your understanding of His word as presented by His servant, John.
📒Who Is This Jesus ✍ Michael Green
📝Who is this Jesus Book Synopsis : These days most people will grant that Jesus Christ was a great teacher who lived in a corner of the old Roman empire. Most also welcome his teachings as a sound basis for civilization. But what difference does that make now? Why has a whole religion been built on this person? What did he actually say and do? And how can we trust the written records about him? This fast-moving, highly readable book introduces Jesus of Nazareth honestly and openly, with no prior knowledge assumed. Michael Green is the highly respected author of more than fifty books. He has been Principal of St. John's College, Nottingham, Rector to St. Aldate's Church Oxford, and Professor of Evangelism and New Testament at Regent College, Vancouver. He now serves as Senior Research Fellow at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University.
📒The Eighteen Absent Years Of Jesus Christ ✍ Lloyd Kenyon Jones
📝The Eighteen Absent Years of Jesus Christ Book Synopsis : Where was Jesus between the ages of 12 and 30? The Bible says nothing of these years or his whereabouts during that time.

Chapter titles include The Improbable Journey into Thibet; The Family of Jesus; Jesus, the Worker in Wood; Christs Power of Healing; The Education of Jesus; and To Those Who Would Follow in the Way He Led.
📒Jesus The Prototokos ✍ Kevin Sparks Berry
📝Jesus the Prototokos Book Synopsis : Jesus Christ tells us what the Gospel is in Mark 16:16 (KJV). The Gospel is "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved." (Mark 16:16) Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. (John 14:6) The Gospel is the way, the truth and the life. The Gospel is Jesus. Jesus is the Gospel. Jesus is the Word (John 1:1). The Gospel is the Word (John 1:2). The Gospel is the word (John 12:48). Jesus is the prototokos: Jesus was born of the flesh at his natural birth; we are born of the flesh at our natural birth. Jesus was born again of the Spirit at his baptism by immersion; we are born again of the Spirit at our baptism by immersion. Jesus was raised from the dead at his baptism by immersion; we are raised from the dead at our baptism by immersion. Jesus was raised again after his second death; we shall be raised again after our second death.
📒James The Brother Of Jesus ✍ Robert H. Eisenman
📝James the Brother of Jesus Book Synopsis : James was a vegetarian, wore only linen clothing, bathed daily at dawn in cold water, and was a life-long Nazirite. In this profound and provocative work of scholarly detection, eminent biblical scholar Robert Eisenman introduces a startling theory about the identity of James—the brother of Jesus, who was almost entirely marginalized in the New Testament. Drawing on long-overlooked early Church texts and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Eisenman reveals in this groundbreaking exploration that James, not Peter, was the real successor to the movement we now call "Christianity." In an argument with enormous implications, Eisenman identifies Paul as deeply compromised by Roman contacts. James is presented as not simply the leader of Christianity of his day, but the popular Jewish leader of his time, whose death triggered the Uprising against Rome—a fact that creative rewriting of early Church documents has obscured. Eisenman reveals that characters such as "Judas Iscariot" and "the Apostle James" did not exist as such. In delineating the deliberate falsifications in New Testament dcouments, Eisenman shows how—as James was written out—anti-Semitism was written in. By rescuing James from the oblivion into which he was cast, the final conclusion of James the Brother of Jesus is, in the words of The Jerusalem Post, "apocalyptic" —who and whatever James was, so was Jesus.
