Item description for Jesus the New Way [VHS] by Tom Wright...
This is a series like none other. It presents Jesus as you have never seen him before. For Christians, Jesus has been seen through centuries of doctrinal development and creedal formulations. For Jews, Jesus has been seen through a frightful history that understandably creates suspicion. For the indifferent, the question is legitimately, who cares? What difference does Jesus make anyhow? This six-part video curriculum approaches all three responses from a different perspective, from the vantage point of what Jesus meant, indeed, how he understoood himself, in his original context, in the setting of first century Judaism. Historian and Biblical scholar Dr. Tom Wright distills the essence of twenty years of his acclaimed research into this video series. A gifted communicator, Wright delivers with clarity and a magnetic vitality. Six 30-minutes programs with complete curriculum.
