This session focuses on Jesus Christ as the climax of the story and the fulfillment of all the Old Testament scriptures. He is the true image of God, the true Israelite, who redeems humanity through his person, work, and words. Jesus is both Saviour and Lord, and his redemptive work affects everything. This gives meaning to all of life and culture, including our ordinary activities. The gospel is therefore more than personal salvation; it is the invitation to participate in a renewed life for a renewed world.
Filled with current examples, McKnight argues that Christians need to remember the whole story of the gospel for the whole of our lives. The gospel is about more than evangelism and the salvation of souls; it includes the creation of gospel culture, a holistic community of discipleship in response to the love of God.
Who was Jesus according to Scripture and modern scholarship? Wright answers these questions through an accessible and engaging look at different themes and events from the life of Jesus.
