The Insider and the Outcast

The Gospels are full of encounters that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus Christ. In the second essay of his new series, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and New York Times-bestselling author of The Reason for God, shows how those encounters can still have a deep effect on us today. By examining the biblical passages where Jesus speaks with an insider, Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council, and an outsider, a Samaritan woman, Keller sheds light on the subject of sin - the biblical concept for what is wrong with the world. This second essay in the ten-part Encounters with Jesus series also includes an exclusive look at Timothy Keller's book on faith and work: Every Good Endeavour: Connecting Your Work to God's Work.

This and the other nine in the series make up the complete Encounters With Jesus: Unexpected Answers to Life's Biggest Questions.

Great Insights on John 3 and 4
5 stars By Julz, Nov 30 2017
This little book is part of the book "Encounters with Jesus", which is Tim Keller's exposition of stories of encounters with Jesus in the book of John. "The Insider" refers to Nicodemus (John 3), and "The Outcast" refers to the Samaritan Woman (John 4). I've always heard separate sermons on both chapters, but never together, and this book considers both chapters together, which is like The Story of the elder son and the younger son in the Prodigal Son (Luke 15). As always, with his writings, they are insightful, Jesus and gospel-centered, and will leave you more and more amazed of Christ.
