Who Is Jesus?

His name is recognized the world over. Christians claim to follow him. Muslims honor him as a prophet. And many Jewish rabbis regard him as a great teacher. Evryone knows about Jesus, but how many of us fully understand what he was like as a person?

Nowhere was the vitality of Jesus more visible than in his love, a love unlike any the world has ever seen. Compassionate, honest, powerful, humble, and sacrificial. Jesus was love personified, love walking among us. Such an example doesn't just happen. How did he do it? And how can we learn to love like him?

In LOVE WALKED AMONG US, Paul Miller invites us to get to know Jesus, to observe his life and his love as they unfold in the gospel narratives. THe accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, combined with Miller's own life stories, will encourage us to imitate Jesus' way of loving people. We'll investigate such questions as:
How do you love someone when you get no love in return, only withdrawal or ingratitude?
How do you love without being trapped or used by another person?
How do yoy love when you have your own problems? When do you take care of yourself?

In every way, Jesus' life exemplifies the full potential of what we were intended to be. And the better we know him, the more we will be drawn to follow his perfect example.
