What does the Bible say about who Jesus is and what he asks of us, his followers?
Throughout the Old Testament and into the New, God not only demands righteousness from his people but also showers on grace that enables them to act. Jesus, of course, provides the ultimate fulfillment of these twin aspects of God's relationship to humanity. In biblical terms, Jesus is the King who demands righteous obedience from his followers, and Jesus is the Servant who provides the grace that enables this obedience.
In Following Jesus, the Servant King, Jonathan Lunde makes plain how having a strong understanding of covenantal theology opens us to greater discipleship. From the angle of biblical teaching, Lunde tackles some of the most poignant questions about being a disciple of Christ:
- What does it mean to follow Jesus?
- What does God expect from his followers.
- How can we be and do what is required?
While answering these essential questions, Lunde thoroughly details God's covenants throughout the whole of Scripture, explaining what this means in terms of our relationship with God and how Jesus fulfills each of them in turn.
Part of the Biblical Theology for Life series, this practical and robust book will help you ground your discipleship on the solid foundation of biblical understanding and reflection.
