Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?
Author ferrets out the truth about the ‘Man from Nazareth’
LONGWOOD, FLâ€"In an age where people choose religions the way they pick a cell phone plan, knowing what, and most of all who, you stand for makes all the difference. Jesus asked His disciples â€?"Who do men say that I am?” followed by the question true faith hinges on: â€?"Who do YOU say that I am?” In his book Jesus of Nazareth: The Fullness of the Godhead Bodily Colossians 2:9 ($15.99, Paperback, 9781612154916), author George A. Elias answers â€?"who Jesus is” with clarity and conciseness, separating fact from fiction.
A born evangelist who started taking evangelism teams out on the streets of San Diego in 1979, Elias is passionate about communicating the truth of Jesus Christ. â€?"Over the years I’ve found that the key doctrinal issue most people differ on is ‘who is Jesus of Nazareth,’” says Elias. â€?"I can spend my time trying to debate a variety of subjects with someone, but if I concentrate on who Jesus is and give an accurate description of how the Scriptures speak of Him, the other subjects will not matter as much. He is the key to scriptural truth.”
The book provides a clear understanding of who Jesus is, why He came, why He had to be a Son, the difference between the Son of God and the Son of Man, why He is called "the fullness of the Godhead," and how detailed God was in establishing His Messiah. Jesus of Nazareth equips anyone who wants to be a fruitful soul-winner or effective discipler, demonstrating how the true church is the outflow of who Jesus is. It also provides key Hebrew and Greek words for the student of the Word to help them in personal reflection and ministry to unbelievers. An excellent reference for outreach teams, pastors, church leaders, and anyone needing information about the most influential person who has ever lived, this book proffers the answer at their fingertips.
