reintroduces readers to the true Son of God, helping them see him with clear vision, so that they can love him more fully and follow him more completely Readers will be surprised and delighted as they get to know the Jesus whose face is clearly revealed through the titles God gave him and the names used for him by his earliest followers.
A sense of comfortable familiarity with the Savior can cloud people's vision-and even prevent them from drawing closer to Jesus as he really is. His titles and descriptions are heard so often that it's easy to miss the impact of their true meaning. Even the name Jesus
is so well known that it has lost much of its power in believers' lives.
In these pages, readers will encounter a Jesus who surprises and unsettles, who comforts and empowers, in astonishingly authentic ways. Each chapter focuses on one aspect of Jesus' identity-such as Rabbi, Son of Man, Light of the World. As pastor and scholar Mark Roberts explores what's behind each of these titles, he brings insight into the theological and historical meanings, and then relates them to life today.
Readers will travel back to first-century Palestine, meet the God-man we know as Jesus, and experience a soul-changing encounter with him. Because to know him is to love him.
