How well do you know Jesus? Two thousand years after He walked the earth, millions still desire to know the Savior--to understand His mission, to receive His gift of grace, forgiveness, and salvation. The Bible tells His story, but why does the New Testament have four biographies of Jesus' life and ministry instead of only one? Is it a case of redundancy or revelation? The Four Faces of Jesus, by Robert K. McIver, profiles each of the gospel writers and shows how their testimony enables us to understand Jesus better when viewed from four different perspectives. As you read, you'll gain a new understanding of the parables, the sermon on the mount, the Olivet discourse, and many specific episodes such as the woman who washed Jesus' feet and the death of Lazarus. Discover ancient clues to the identity of Barabbas, and ponder archeaological findings that illuminate the horror of crucifixion. Anyone wishing to pursue a deeper understanding of the world of Jesus, and of the workings of inspiration, will prize the insights found in this book.
