Item description for A Biography of Jesus: A Guide to Order Key Events in His Life by Tom J. Cowley...
Overview Do you want to know Jesus better?Do you long for a deeper walk and relationship with Him?Do you need a framework of his life to order his teachings, share with others, and guide your life? A Biography of Jesus is written to help people order, understand, and remember the life of Jesus. As a reference it contains 32 studies focused on different key events in his life. The key events are grouped around four base locations from which Jesus lived, traveled, and ministered. In each study you will be asked to read passages from the New Testament Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) in your Bible. The passages relate to the events studied. I hope that readers of this Guide will better understand the life ol Jesus and be prepared to share in dialog Jesus effectively with friends and others. "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect" (1 Peter 315b). You will meet Jesus through selected key events in various settings. As you walk with him, feel his challenges, joys, and concerns. We can learn from his human and divine nature. He brings God's logos (Word) to a world in need of truth. His experiences guided the daily walk of his followers then and are available to us now.Why should we focus on events? We live in an eventdriven information age. Overviews or summaries are a part of our 30minute newscasts. Often our commentators are trying to pack 20 or more stories in brief sound bites. Politicians are scheduling photo opportunities to communicate messages. Organizations hire evenl planners to create themes. More depth coverage of subjects is available through television documentaries on events, history, and biographies. We are constantly learning from events. How people behaved, what they said and what they did, lead to impressions. We draw values or truths about the lives and goals of people from events. By ordering the events in the life of Jesus in our minds, we can know him better and have a closer relationship with him. We were "Created to become like Christ."1 Jesus taught in the oral tradition clearing temples, delivering sermons on mountainsides, eating in homes, performing miracles with impact, telling parables, and teaching through encounters with Jewish leaders. He wanted observers to take home and use his messages. For those who have not yet chosen to follow Jesus, my purpose is to provide an opportunity to read his life as a biography. Don't rel
