New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet Timothy Keller explores how people are changed by meeting Jesus personally—and how we can be changed encountering him today. The people who met Jesus Christ in person faced the same big life questions we face today. Like most of us, the answers handed down to them didn’t seem to work in the real world. But when they met Jesus, things immediately started to change for them. It seems he not only had the answers—he was the answer. In Encounters with Jesus, Timothy Keller shows how the central events and meetings in Jesus’ life can change our own lives forever. "Keller's work belongs on the bookshelf of every serious Bible student." —Examiner "Keller has mined the gold from these texts of Scripture, and any Christian is bound to have their minds expanded and hearts stirred." —Grace for Sinners

Learning to Follow Jesus: Encountering Jesus in the Gospels is a devotional Bible study. It focuses on encounters with Jesus in the Gospels in the New Testament. You will see Jesus through the eyes of some of His first followers, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These men were privileged to tell the greatest story ever told. You will notice people then were not much different from us today. Their questions and struggles, sorrows and joys, their unbelief and distorted images of God were the same things we grapple with now. The stuff of being human. You will see Jesus' love, patience, grace, brilliance, purposefulness, and more played out as He introduced His Kingdom life, His plan of salvation, to the lost and broken world He came to save. Jesus said in John 12:45, "And whoever sees Me sees Him Who sent Me." To see Jesus is to see God. You can use this study to take a deep look at the life Jesus Christ, God incarnate, and see the love of the Father clearly revealed. Jesus' Name is Emmanuel, God with us. In this study you see the powerful effect being with Jesus had on His early followers. You will find it is the same for us as well, as we spend time with Jesus in the pages of scripture. This study can be used as part of your own personal devotions or it can be used as a Bible study for a group. Either way, it is designed to help you linger in these powerful passages of scripture in order to bring you closer to the Lord.

The Gospels are full of encounters that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus Christ. In his Encounters with Jesusseries, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times-bestselling author of The Reason for God, shows how those encounters can still have a deep effect on us today. The baptism of Jesus and his temptation in the desert are two well-known experiences of Christ, yet it is often forgotten that they go together. In The Great Enemy, Keller explores the contrast between Jesus' encounters with God and Satan. He explains why evil is deeper, more nuanced, and more complex than we think, and how we can confront and weaken its destructive force in our lives. This and the other nine in the series make up the complete Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions.

Applying a comprehensive theory of character to the Gospel of John, Cornelis Bennema provides a fresh analysis of the characters and their responses to Jesus. While the majority of scholars view most Johannine characters as “flat,” Bennema demonstrates that many are complex, developing, and “round.” John’s broad array of characters correspond to people and their choices in real life in any culture and time. This book highlights how John’s Gospel seeks to challenge its readers about where they stand in relation to Jesus.

Christian readers of the New Testament study the great stories about Jesus through the lens of western culture. In this series of books, Gary Burge uses his extensive knowledge of the first century world and the Middle East to offer insights not available to the average person. Each book will develop important cultural themes and wrap them around well-known New Testament passages. And the result will be insights rarely gained elsewhere. See Jesus through the eyes of two men and three women. Each character in the story—a tax collector, a Phoenician woman, a centurion, etc.—brings along elements from their own world now hidden from us because we do not share the culture of Jesus' world. Insights from the first century Middle East abound to unlock profound insights about Jesus and his audience.
