Have you ever wanted to know more of what the Bible says about Jesus Christ? These six studies are deceptively short, simple, and clear. Each one can be read quickly, but if you really delve into them – checking the Scriptures, working through the Bible studies, thinking through the reflection questions – you will find a rich study resource.
The Bible Themes resource at the end is a useful alphabetical listing of key Bible themes that gives practical and teaching help along with Scripture references. The “see also” cross references are linked within the section.
You can use this ebook for personal Bible study or for group study.
Son of God, Messiah, Saviour, Lord, Son of Man, Emmanuel, Friend of Sinners – all are names given to the pivotal figure of history, Jesus Christ. These studies will help you to learn about his unique character, his life on earth, his ministry, his saving work for the human race, his atoning death, and his triumphant resurrection.
Jesus is the one by whom creation itself came into being and he is the world’s Saviour and conqueror of evil. He is the starting point of all things. If we do not see Jesus that way, we will be like the person who puts on a shirt beginning with the wrong button and thinks, “If I keep buttoning my shirt, maybe it will all fit in the end.” But it never will! If we cannot recognize Jesus as the starting point of everything, life’s meaning will escape us.
