Jesus Collection: The World-Shattering Ministry of Jesus

Anne CrumplerJohn Gooch

$17.99

Paperback
This 7 session study focuses on Jesus as a revolutionary figure and change agent, both in his own context and in ours and will help adults understand the radical nature of Jesus’ ministry for and among all people, including the “outcast,” and how Jesus models for us a ministry that challenges and pushes the limits.

The World-Shattering Ministry of Jesus guides learners through some of the most difficult and challenging teachings and practices. This study examines: a description of the world in which Jesus and his disciples conducted their ministry and how Jesus identified himself at the outset of that ministry; a commentary on the nature of sin and how Jesus came particularly to call to salvation those whom society labeled as sinners and outcasts; Jesus' "cleansing of the Temple" and the implications and consequences of that challenge to the authority of the religious leaders; the challenge Jesus posed to the interpretations of Scripture in his day and how that investment into a deeper meaning urged his hearers to a more faithful life; ways in which Jesus challenged and threatened the existing social order by reaching out to persons who were considered unclean and welcoming them into the community and the Kingdom; a radical reinterpretation of the use and possession of wealth; Jesus' call to a life of discipleship and how relinquishment of cherished ways of life bring transformation and liberty.
