Who Is Jesus?

What do you think Jesus was like? What are some of your (maybe unexamined) ideas about who Jesus was/is? Some people think Jesus was an activist. Some think he was a spiritual guru. Some think he was a revolutionary. Ricky Bobby thinks he is still a baby. The question of who Jesus is has been on magazine covers on every Christmas and Easter for several years.

Here are two books that present very different perspectives on who Jesus is. I would suggest reading through one of the Gospels first (Luke might be the best one to start with) and then reading these two books back to back. The first is The Jesus I Never Knew by Philip Yancey. The second is Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time by Marcus Borg. You might be shocked to find out that the Jesus of the New Testament may be different than you think…
