Jesus was human, like you and me. If the gospel is true, he still is. Christians worldwide believe that Jesus is God. But this belief wasn’t the starting point for Jesus’ earliest followers. While Jesus’ humanity was a given for the disciples, his divinity was a truth they grew into believing—it was a journey of faith. As Christians today, we are also called into a faith journey—this time, to rediscover Jesus’ humanity. Yes, we believe that Jesus is God, but do we truly believe that Jesus is human? And if so, how does that transform our own experience of being human? Through eye-opening yet down-to-earth reflections, Jesus Journey invites you to encounter Jesus again—as if for the first time—by experiencing his breathing, heart-beating, body-and-blood, crying-and-laughing humanity. Join Bible teacher and storyteller Trent Sheppard as he shines new light on the vibrant humanity of the historical Jesus through an up-close look at Jesus’ relationships with Mary and Joseph, with the God he called Abba, with his closest friends and followers, and how, ultimately, his crucifixion and resurrection finally and forever redefine what we mean by the word God. Come encounter the human who radically transforms our view of God. Come encounter the God who forever changes what it means to be human.

Journey to Jesus, A Walk Through the Bible, written in every day street language, takes a fresh look at some key areas of the Bible and how they relate to the most supreme event in mankinds historythe Incarnation. The purpose of "Journey to Jesus, A Walk Through the Bible" is to motivate people to become TRUE Christiansa Christian being any person who strives to live by the guidelines set by Jesus, guidelines that are not primarily religiously centered, but humanitarian. A Christian, then, is a person whose guiding spirit is one of deep caring kindness. Through His word and examples, Jesus came to earth to teach all people how to enter into a glorious new area of life that He called The Kingdom of God! This book focuses on the guiding principle of conduct that is the one primary requirement for admission into His kingdomthe active spirit of unbounded, unlimited KINDNESS. The key message is this, "To conclude, all people of goodwill (i.e. kind hearted) should consider all other like-minded people as brothers and sisters in Christ...regardless of their religious beliefs and affiliations, if any, or their cultural backgrounds." Jewish and master religions honor Jesus for the sublime wisdom of His teachings. It is my hope that the words set forth in this book will encourage Christians around the world to closely examine the words of Jesus Himself and what He was trying to teach us. And in doing so, it is my prayer that we will all incorporate His words into our hearts and lives, making clear once more His pathways to Life Everlasting. -Leroy Dickerson, Jr.- Selections from the book Some day soon, the curtain will fall on our lives and this functioning unity of body and soul will cease to be. Will our souls continue on into another life? Or will they also flicker out because they are only the creation of energyforms called BODY, which promptly begins to disintegrate upon death? Once again, though it desperately tries, humanity cannot and never will discover the TRUE reality. We can make assumptions that are derived from either our fears or powerful desires of hope, but that is all we haveand nothing more!So I submit that the propositions I just presented support the reality of Jesus. While not absolute proof, they are valid assumptions. Therefore, the Gospel message that confronts us today is NOT a message about some fictional character from Once upon a time... Instead, the Gospel story is about the very real Jesus Christ...the ONE and ONLY. Jesus, who continues to challenge us today in the same manner that He challenged the Hebrews who had direct contact with Him when He walked in Palestine during the reign of Pontius Pilate and Tetrarch Herod...YES, that Jesus was real! And, the resurrected Christ is real! We have every logical reason to bet our lives on the fact that Jesus is REAL and ALIVE today.As I look back over my own life, somewhat judging myself...I realize that on the whole, I have failed the test. I have always known that Christ wants and expects me to be a kind person. But in this rough world of ours, it is certainly not easy to do. At this late hour of my life, all I can do now is keep His standards in mind and follow them to the very best of my ability for the remainder of my days on earth. Be kind! At all times! To everyone! In every situation! This is the message Christ came to teach and to illustratekindness, the one trait of a truly glorious and successful life.So its not just the pious devotees in church who are safe in the arms of Christ. Instead, I surmise its all people whose hearts are akin to Christs heartthose who are motivated and activated by a powerful loving concern for all of humanity, thereby embracing a spirit that is most accurately termed as kindness. So, its when we think kindly

Adapted from Journey of Decision, a Way of the Cross for adults, this children's Way engages children by having them actively participate. Fourteen readers represent characters from the passion of Jesus. Suggestions are given at the outset for props or symbolic costumes that achieve a two-fold purpose: they draw children into the story, thus helping them follow along. As in the original Journey on which this children's adaptation is based, the text combines the traditional with the innovative. It asks children to journey with Jesus not just during this Way of the Cross but during every day of their lives.

Many believers are under the assumption Christianity consists of a system of rules to live by, but God never intended for us to be chained down by religion. He wants an intimate, honest relationship with usbut many of us do not know how to foster such a relationship. In Checklist Jesus: A Journey from Religion to Relationship author Jeremy A. Walker, elaborating on stories from the Bible, explains how the Lord hopes to commune with us. He guides us from the religious world of dos and dontswhich has ruled the Christian community for many yearstoward a more intimate relationship with God. Walker demonstrates how to move from a journey dominated by repetitious activity to a system of pursuing Lord Jesus Christ through Christian living and shift our focus away from the things we do and toward the One we do them for. He also provides character studies of biblical figures with intimate fellowships with the Lord. They exemplify how the Lord hopes to have relationship with each of us and can help us find that same relationship. Checklist Jesus explains how the things we do and the where we do them have little eternal value. But if we focus our lives and activities on growing the kingdom of God and exalting the name of Jesus, we can know our efforts will be sustained throughout eternity.
