You believe Jesus is God. But do you also think of him as a real person?
For thirty-three years Jesus felt everything that we have ever felt: weakness, weariness, rejections. His feelings got hurt. His feet grew tired. His head ached.
To think of Jesus in such terms almost seems irreverent. It is much easier to keep the humanity out of the incarnation. Clean up the manure from around the manger. Pretend he never snored or hit his thumb with a hammer. There is something about keeping Jesus divine that keeps him distant, packaged, and predictable. But we have to remember that the people who saw Jesus first . . . saw him first as a person.
As Max Lucado reveals in his video Bible study, Jesus, because Jesus became human, it is now possible for us to see God and hear his voice. If we want to know what matters to God, all we need to do is look in the Bible to see what matters to Jesus. If we want to know what God is doing in our world, we need only ponder the words of Jesus. By learning more about the person Jesus was and is, we come to understand more clearly the people we were created to be.
This Bible study inspires us to spend time at the foot of the cross and search the heart of the one who would rather die for us than live without us.
Components for the study include a Book, Study Guide (with video teaching notes, discussion questions, Bible exploration, and weekly personal study and reflection materials) and a DVD Video Study (with six video sessions approximately 17-18 minutes each in length, closed captioned).
