From the Inside Flap
But now "Jesus Revealed reintroduces readers to the true Son of God, helping them see him with clear vision, so that they can love him more fully and follow him more completely Readers will be surprised and delighted as they get to know the Jesus whose face is clearly revealed through the titles God gave him and the names used for him by his earliest followers.
In these pages, readers will encounter a Jesus who surprises and unsettles, who comforts and empowers, in astonishingly authentic ways. Each chapter focuses on one aspect of Jesus' identity-such as Rabbi, Son of Man, Light of the World. As pastor and scholar Mark Roberts explores what's behind each of these titles, he brings insight into the theological and historical meanings, and then relates them to life today.
Readers will travel back to first-century Palestine, meet the God-man we know as Jesus, and experience a soul-changing encounter with him. Because to know him is to love him."

Dr. Mark Roberts has systematically set out who Jesus is, presenting the best scholarship in this well-footnoted book. And he does this in a way that interlaces serious theological insights with captivatingly folksy illustrations--a conversation with his little daughter reveals deep theological truths. We are lead through detailed aspects of the many-faceted Jesus, yet the teaching is easy to follow.
But the Jesus the author presents is not found solely in facts. Rather, as the title suggests, Mark provides information so you can know someone who will capture your heart and your mind. And challenge you to a life radically different from today's culture, one in harmony with God's plan for a more abundant life.
Other than the New Testament, I can't recommend a better read today by which to know Jesus better.
Roberts also shows why our own paradigm may get in the way of fully understanding Jesus: "We must avoid the tendency to resolve the tension in Jesus' model of holiness in a way that panders to our personal preferences, favoring either moral relativism or legalistic separatism ... Logic and analogy take us only so far.Read more ›
