First, My name is Richard Beobide, the purchaser of the the book, "What Can We Know about Jesus?" by Howard Clark Lee. I enjoyed the book very much. Kee's insights reveal Jesus through five historic perspectives, which are: What can be learned about Jesus through sources outside the New Testament, early Christian writings outside the s: 2. Jesus' life stands in sharp contrast to those of the false messiahs. Jesus' life stands in sharp contrast to those of the false messiahs, and it is a positive demonstration of what we would expect the Messiah to do. Jesus worked many miracles of healing, bringing wholeness into people's lives, forgiving sin and restoring relationships. When you learn how to know Jesus, you begin an amazing journey into God’s plan for your life. Romans says it this way: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of g Jesus is simply acknowledging your need for Him, believing what He did for you and accepting His amazing gift. It recognizes that you can’t live this life on your own, that you’ve sinned and are in need. Historical Jesus asks two primary questions: What does “historical” mean? and How should we apply this to Jesus? Anthony Le Donne begins with the unusual step of considering human perception — how sensory data from sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell are interpreted from the very beginning by what we expect, what we’ve learned, and how we categorize the world/5(8).

We would know that for him the loss of life was, as it is for us, the loss of a great possession, a possession that is outranked only by love.” (my formatting; pp. ).

  Jesus was the One who would bring judgment as well as life by the Spirit of God (Matt ). The evangelists record that Jesus was anointed by the Spirit when he was baptized. Jesus proclaimed himself as the Messiah in Nazareth (Luke ) and at Jacob's well to the Samaritan woman (John ). How Can We Know What Jesus Really Said? This week our question comes from thirteen-year-old Ashleigh. She challenges a statement I made in a former column about the Gospel of Thomas and the words of Jesus. Specifically, she questioned how we know which are authentically Jesus’ words and which are inauthentic sayings of Jesus. Today, with the development of the science of history, archaeological advances, and a wider and better knowledge of ancient sources, one can quote a well-known specialist of the Jewish world, who cannot be labelled as a conservative: “we can know a lot about Jesus” (E.P. Sanders, Jesus and Judaism, Fortress Press, London-Philadelphia ). We really have no idea when Jesus will return, but we should be motivated with a passionate urgency because Jesus said, it could be at any moment (Matt )! Conclusion.
