  What Did Jesus Really Mean When He Said Follow Me? builds on the message of Follow Me to motivate readers to experience our grand purpose: to exalt the glory of God by spreading Christ’s gospel—to make disciples who are making disciples. This booklet is a great resource to share with others to discuss crucial faith questions in a personal /5(63). To know the real Jesus we have to ask: What did He really say? It doesn’t ultimately matter what people say about Him. Nor does it really matter what interpretations they give of what He said. What truly matters is what He really said, and whether we’re going to believe what He said. Clear statement in the Sermon on the Mount.

Today, I realize that what Jesus was really saying is this: "I am the way," as in, "I know the way." "I've discovered it" which, by implication means, "you can, too." Elsewhere, he put it like this: "I and the Father are one" and he prayed that we would discover the same as well (John 17). Which is precisely why he said continually, "Follow me.". This book is unique. NEVER BEFORE, has a book been compiled, giving the words of Jesus as He spoke in the Bible. -Presented as a full color and beautifully illustrated e-book or paperback version with large, easy to read text, this book makes a perfect gift for anyone wanting to know Jesus and what He said.

Misconception: Some argue that Jesus must have been of African descent because the book of Revelation compares his hair to wool and his feet to “burnished bronze.” —Revelation 1: 14, 15, The New Jerusalem Bible. Fact: The book of Revelation is presented “in signs.”(Revelation ) The description of Jesus’ hair and feet uses symbolic language to illustrate Jesus’ qualities after. The Sayings of Jesus on the cross (sometimes called the Seven Last Words from the Cross) are seven expressions biblically attributed to Jesus during his ionally, the brief sayings have been called "words". They are gathered from the four Canonical Gospels. Three of the sayings appear only in the Gospel of Luke and two only in the Gospel of John.

As the author says in the introduction, this book is just a "taste" of a fuller exposition of the topic in a much larger work, "Jesus After Years: What He Really Said and Did" which is over pages.

Obviously, in this short version, there is not going to be extensive, detailed analyses/5(19). This book starts out well, with a challenging question. The author seems to have an open mind and a thirst for real dialogue.

The Jesus Seminar was a group of about 50 critical biblical scholars and laymen founded in by Robert Funk that originated under the auspices of the Westar Institute.

The seminar was very active through the s and s, and into the early 21st century. Members of the Seminar used votes with colored beads to decide their collective view of the historicity of the deeds and sayings.

“Jewish rabbis who did not like Jesus or his followers accused him of being a magician and leading people astray,” he says, “but they never said he didn’t exist.” WATCH: Jesus: His Life. What did non-Christian authors say about Jesus.

As far as we know, the first author outside the church to mention Jesus is the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus, who wrote a. He is of age; he will speak for himself.” 22 His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders, who already had decided that anyone who acknowledged that Jesus was the Messiah would be put out of the synagogue.

He was speaking to the choir in regards to me and it was quite good to read a book that is filled with great research.

I highly recom I thought that the information presented in the book was well researched and interesting to say the very least about it, though at times I thought the author was a bit confrontational at times/5.

The race and appearance of Jesus has been a topic of discussion since the days of early s theories about the race of Jesus have been proposed and debated. By the Middle Ages, a number of documents, generally of unknown or questionable origin, had been composed and were circulating with details of the appearance of these documents are mostly considered.

David Platt has done an excellent job of spelling out the gospel in a new booklet entitled What Did Jesus Really Mean When He Said Follow Me. This booklet is short, direct, and clear. Platt opens the reader’s eyes to the content of the gospel as well as its ramifications. He talks about more than forgiveness/5.

According to another canonical source in the Bible, the Book of Acts (written by the same author as the Gospel of Luke), Judas didn’t kill himself after betraying Jesus.

Instead, he went into a. All this afternoon he thought that it might be his presence with the apostles that prevented Jesus' appearing to them, provided, of course, he had really risen from the dead. And it was to Peter, in such a frame of mind and in such a state of soul, that Jesus appeared as the dejected apostle strolled among the flowers and shrubs.

Jesus told them things would get worse before they got better. He then added these words, “see to it that you are not alarmed ” (Matthew ).

The only time Jesus uses the word alarmed is in this. Jesus (c. 4 BC – c. AD 30 / 33), also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth or Jesus Christ, was a first-century Jewish preacher and religious leader. He is the central figure of Christians believe he is the incarnation of God the Son and the awaited Messiah (the Christ) prophesied in the Old Testament.

Virtually all modern scholars of antiquity agree that Jesus existed. A Call to Live he asks the question, “What did Jesus really mean when he said, ‘Follow me’?” What if we really listened to Jesus’ words and heard what he is saying?

When people truly engage with Jesus’ personal invitation to follow him, everything changes, for he is worthy of all our trust and affections/5(9). Either Jesus actually said that or someone thought He did. Since Jesus’ followers called Him Rabboni or Rabbi, it seems they just thought of Him as a teacher and nothing more.

But Witherington reminds us that Jesus actually taught in a radical new way. In Judaism, the authority of two or more witnesses was required for the proclamation of truth. This book was amazing. It goes through and looks at everything Jesus says in the Bible and tries to say how likely it is that he actually said it.

The words are color coded and there is explanation of why they classified it the way the did. I really appreciate that they also included the Gospel of Thomas/5(33).
