six-session video Bible study (study guide sold separately),
bestselling author Max Lucado explores the life and character of Jesus,
helping participants become more familiar with the man at the center of
the greatest story ever told. As Max explains in this study, for
thirty-three years Jesus felt everything that we have ever felt:
weakness, weariness, rejections. He got colds. His feelings got hurt.
His feet grew tired. His head ached.
To think of Jesus in such terms almost seems irreverent. It is much
easier to keep the humanity out of the incarnation. Clean up the manure
from around the manger. Wipe the sweat out of his eyes. Pretend he never
snored or hit his thumb with a hammer. There is something about keeping
Jesus divine that keeps him distant, packaged, and predictable.
But we have to remember that by Jesus becoming human, God made it
possible for us to see him and hear his voice. If we want to know what
matters to God, all we need to do is look in the Bible to see what
matters to Jesus. If we want to know what God is doing in our world, we
need only ponder the words of Jesus. By learning more about the person
Jesus was and is, we come to understand more clearly the people we were
created to be.
Jesus will inspire group members to spend time at the foot
of the cross and search the heart of the one who would rather die for
them than live without them.
