It’s popular to believe that Jesus Christ was a good teacher and an ethical man similar to Ghandi, Mother Teresa, or maybe even Meher Baba. Bowman and Komoszewski have shaped their book as a response to the currently popular and culture-shaping Jesus Seminar, founded by Robert Funk. For those who don’t yet know, the Jesus Seminar has nothing to do with the religion of Christianity – there seems to be no prayer meetings, Bible sermons, or church socials involved. What it does include is a group of about 150 well-educated people investigating the historical accounts of Jesus Christ written by various sources both written and archeological. Their conclusive conviction has been to re-evaluate Jesus Christ: emphasizing the difference between the accounts of Gospel authors, assigning chronological order to historical Gospel events, theorizing unknown written sources for the Gospel parables, and questioning Jesus Christ’s role as Prophet, High Priest, and Almighty Lord God. This book is two Christian guys’ response to these claims, which has the effect of balancing out the argument and streamlining the evidence to only include what the Bible itself claims to be true about Jesus Christ. Most of us don’t really know what the Bible says, so what a helpful resource. What claims does the Bible itself make about Jesus Christ? Educate yourself about this Jesus before you choose a side. And then keep this on your bookshelf where everyone can read it. No borrowing my starred and underlined copy; you’ll have to buy one for yourself!
