Portraits of Jesus: A Reading Guide
This is an introductory guide to the ways Jesus is depicted in the New Testament. Both college students and the general reader will find here a variety of New Testament understandings of Jesus that are rooted in critical reading of the four Gospels and Pauline letters. The authors of the four Gospels show considerable freedom in their handling of the words and deeds associated with Jesus. New Testament authors are not so much news reporters as promoters of Christian living. They shape their material to highlight who Jesus is and how to live according to his teaching and example. This work presumes neither religious faith nor lack of faith; its aim is to inform and to stimulate some fundamental questions as well as to give the readers portraits as synthetic balance to the vital work of analysis. At best this book should be read with a copy of the New Testament at hand to answer questions and to challenge the assertions of reader and author.

Four Portraits, One Jesus: A Survey of Jesus and the Gospels
To Christians worldwide, the man Jesus of Nazareth is the centerpiece of history, the object of faith, hope, and worship. Even those who do not follow him admit the vast influence of his life. For anyone interested in knowing more about Jesus, study of the four biblical Gospels is essential. Four Portraits, One Jesus is a thorough yet accessible introduction to these documents and their subject, the life and person of Jesus. Like different artists rendering the same subject using different styles and points of view, the Gospels paint four highly distinctive portraits of the same remarkable Jesus. With clarity and insight, Mark Strauss illuminates these four books, first addressing their nature, origin, methods for study, and historical, religious, and cultural backgrounds. He then moves on to closer study of each narrative and its contribution to our understanding of Jesus, investigating things such as plot, characters, and theme. Finally, he pulls it all together with a detailed examination of what the Gospels teach about Jesus’ ministry, message, death, and resurrection, with excursions into the quest for the historical Jesus and the historical reliability of the Gospels.

Nine Portraits of Jesus: Discovering Jesus through the Enneagram
In this book are intense and biblically centered meditations on the personality of Jesus based on the enneagram system of personality types.The enneagram system demonstrates that there are nine ways of expressing what it is to be human. And Father Nogosek shows clearly that since Jesus came to save all of us by becoming as we are, each of us should be able to discover in him our own way of being human.Jesus, as Father Nogosek demonstrates, did not have any of the compulsions that distinguish each of the nine types. But he spontaneously expressed in his personality all nine types. Father Nagosek takes each of the nine types in order and answers the following questions: (1) How does Jesus express the gifts of this type? (2) What is the compulsion of this type which Jesus would have avoided? (3) Do the Scriptures reveal any clues to Jesus' motivations from his teaching, from his actions?

A Portrait of Jesus
There are countless paths to follow when seeking spiritual guidance, but thousands of years of religion and theology cannot replace the premier example that Jesus himself set. In A Portrait of Jesus, bestselling writer Joseph Girzone recaptures the truth of Jesus that is presented in the Gospels and gives a compelling vision of the person Jesus' contemporaries must have known. In his most powerful work yet, Girzone seeks to personify Christ in the minds of readers by asking some simple questions: "What did people see in Jesus as he walked down the street? How did he approach others and what would these people take away from meeting him? What do his actions tell us about how we can live our lives today?" It is Girzone's empowering and loving understanding of the heart of Christianity that will make A Portrait of Jesus a groundbreaking classic in the tradition of his bestselling books, Joshua and Never Alone.

God the Son: What John's Portrait of Jesus Means and Why it Matters
John’s portrait of Jesus is breathtaking yet bewildering. In the first verse he’s called “God.” At the climax of the book he’s worshiped as Lord and God (20:28). On the other hand, he says he can’t do a thing without the okay of his Father (5:19, 30). How are we to understand this profound yet puzzling figure? Uniquely equipped as both a New Testament scholar and engaging pastoral communicator, Randy Rheaume shows how the contrasts in John’s portrait of Jesus (especially his deity and his sonship) fit together and are meaningful and helpful for the Christian life. Is Jesus really God? If so, what difference does it make? How can he be God and yet in submission to God? Why didn’t he ever say, “I am God! Worship me!”? How does the Son’s role differ from the Father’s? If God is more than one person, how do prayer and worship work? How can I know God better? What will make eternity with God so fun that we’ll never get bored? Is the Trinity truly biblical? And where does the Holy Spirit come into the picture? Rheaume’s exploration probes John’s Gospel and provides profound insight into these and related questions.

Portraits of Jesus in the Gospel of John (The Library of New Testament Studies)
John's Gospel is best known for its presentation of Jesus as the Word of God made flesh. But as the narrative unfolds, readers discover that the identity of Jesus is surprisingly complex. He is depicted as a teacher, a healer, a prophet, and Messiah. He is Jewish and Galilean, a human being who is Son of Man and Son of God. Portraits of Jesus considers each of these roles in detail, showing how each makes a distinctive contribution to the Gospel's rich mosaic of images for Jesus. John's multifaceted portrait of Jesus draws on a broad spectrum of early Christian traditions. Contributors to this collection of essays explore the ways in which these traditions are both preserved and transformed in the Fourth Gospel. The writers draw us more deeply into the questions of the way in which traditions about Jesus developed in the early church and how the Gospel of John might contribute to our understanding of that dynamic process.

Manual Inspirational Collection 26 x 36 Inch Christian Hanging Multicolor Woven Wall Art Tapestry Décor with Finial Rod, "In His Light" by Greg Olsen, Portrait of Jesus & Small Child
Manual Woodworkers and Weavers brings you a fresh way to display your favorite images and showcase inspiring message with their collection of hanging wall art with included finial hanging rod. Although Thomas Lemuel Oates started Manual Woodworkers and Weavers in 1932, the story goes back further. The roots of the company can be found in Oates' entrepreneurial spirit. He and his brother used to farm the mountain areas of Bat Cave in western North Carolina. They would also help their mother find materials for her crafts. The sons began to make wooden whistles, buckets and bird-houses. They would sell their wares along with her crafts to the people from Charlotte that came through in their horse-drawn buggies on the way to the mountains. Later, Thomas worked at the Ashville Postcard Company. When the Depression hit, he lost his job, but it inspired him to go into business and sell crafts, like cornhusk dolls and woven pieces, that were produced by the local women. He had learned about the wholesale business while working at Ashville. He built a waterwheel to generate electricity at a mill, began making product and opened shop. Over the years, he expanded the company. His son, Lemuel Oates, who would next manage the company, says he worked in the business from a young age. He explai...

Matthew, Disciple and Scribe: The First Gospel and Its Portrait of Jesus
This fresh look at the Gospel of Matthew highlights the unique contribution that Matthew's rich and multilayered portrait of Jesus makes to understanding the connection between the Old and New Testaments. Patrick Schreiner argues that Matthew obeyed the Great Commission by acting as scribe to his teacher Jesus in order to share Jesus's life and work with the world, thereby making disciples of future generations. The First Gospel presents Jesus's life as the fulfillment of the Old Testament story of Israel and shows how Jesus brings new life in the New Testament.

Picture of Jesus Christ black & white portrait print "Lo I am with you always" (8 x 10)
Artist Comments I felt strongly that I should paint a picture of the Savior. I knew that I wanted a picture that radiated love through His eyes and His countenance For ten years I attempted through various art mediums to capture the light of the Savor's love through my picture. With each effort, I knew that I had not succeeded. One day in 2004, I felt a conviction that the time was right to paint the Savior, I returned to my project again. I worked for 24 hours straight. When it was finished, I shed tears of joy. I finally felt His love radiating through the picture. I knew that I had help from above. I love my Savior with all of my heart! I know that He loves each one of us! I hope that you can feel of His love radiating to you!
