"As in volume one, the chapters herein focus on the occasions when Jesus set aside precious moments to teach and train His twelve disciples." Volume 2 picks up with Jesus' ministry following Peter's confession that "You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God" in Matthew 16:16. Readily acknowledging they, the disciples of Christ, believed in Him and His divinity, "it was time for them to hear about His death and departure from them to be with the Father." Continuing His training of the twelve, Jesus Christ also continues, in wisdom and humility, His own preparations toward the Cross. "Readers will see a progressive transition in much of Jesus' ministry from a presentation of who He was to a pronouncement of who we need to be...Jesus' words begin to search our hearts and admonish us to purge ourselves of unholy living and half-hearted service to Him."
