  • Finding Messiah : A Journey Into The Jewishness Of The Gospel


    Jesus was Jewish, and his Jewish identity informed every aspect of his work, words, and witness.

    He came as the Messiah of Israel, God’s covenant people, and he spoke the language of God’s faithfulness to this people. So why does it seem that Judaism has little to do with our Christian discipleship today? Jennifer Rosner, a scholar of Jewish-Christian relations, takes us on a personal and corporate journey into the Jewish roots of Christian faith and practice. Understanding Judaism–and the way in which Judaism and Christianity became separate religions–is essential for a rich and holistic Christian identity. As a follower of Jesus who was raised in a Jewish home and who continues to live a Jewish life, Rosner has seen firsthand how a Christian faith can become impoverished when divorced from its Jewish roots. Finding Messiah follows Rosner’s own journey in rediscovering the role of Judaism and God’s covenant with Israel in Christian life and practice. When we begin to understand Christianity’s indelible relationship to Judaism, key aspects of the Christian faith come alive and the wonder of the gospel becomes clear in new and powerful ways. Jesus’ Judaism provides the foundation for the church that is built upon his name. Rediscover the Jewish Jesus, and in so doing, experience a deeper and richer faith than ever before.

  • Challenge Of Jesus


    In the midst of many well-publicized and controversial books on Jesus, N. T. Wright’s lectures and writings have been widely recognized for providing a fresh, provocative, and credible portrait.

    Originally published in 1999 and with a new introduction in 2015, The Challenge of Jesus presents an accessible introduction to the “quest for the historical Jesus” and why it matters for the Christian faith. Out of his own commitment to both historical scholarship and Christian ministry, Wright challenges us to roll up our sleeves and take seriously the study of the historical Jesus. He writes, “Many Christians have been, frankly, sloppy in their thinking and talking about Jesus, and hence, sadly, in their praying and in their practice of discipleship. . . . Only by hard, historical work can we move toward a fuller comprehension of what the Gospels themselves were trying to say.” This classic work is now available as part of the IVP Signature Collection, which features special editions of iconic books in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of InterVarsity Press.

This ten-session study guide leads us through the growth in the apostle Paul’s knowledge of Jesus and how it changed his life, when at pivotal points he intersected with Jesus.

  • 10 Things I Wish Jesus Hadnt Said


    We want to follow the teachings of Jesus, but what are we supposed to do when those teachings seem too hard or too easy? Even worse, what are we supposed to do when they contradict each other?

    The hard lessons of Jesus sear and scorch, challenge and demand. They call us to accountability, responsibility, and action. These are the lessons from the Sermon on the Mount, the words to the Rich Young Ruler and to the adulteress about to be stoned. These words refuse to let us off the hook.

    The easy sayings seem to contradict and counter the hard messages. These teachings, such as, ”I did not come to bring peace, but a sword,” are easily ripped from context, manipulated, and distorted to allow excuses for behavior Jesus denounces in other lessons.

    Ten Things I Wish Jesus Hadn’t Said focuses on ten of these sayings: five that make it hard to be a Christian; five, in seeming contradiction, that make it easy–all re-scripted in present tense narrative and reframed for contemporary readers.
