Book Description

The publisher offers this ebook for free at ucg.org/booklet/jesus-christ-real-story

The story of Jesus Christ goes much deeper than His crucifixion and resurrection.

Few will dispute that a man named Jesus Christ lived 2,000 years ago and that He was a great teacher who impacted the world. Christ made a controversial claim—that He was the very Son of God, the long-prophesied Messiah—causing religious authorities in Jerusalem to reject Him, hate Him and eventually succeeded in having Him put to death.

Likewise, the local Roman civil authorities also saw Him as a threat and became complicit in His execution. The religions of His day, both Judaism and paganism, opposed the growth of His teachings and used unlawful and violent means to try to destroy the Church He founded. The government of Rome also came to vigorously persecute the followers of this Jewish teacher from Galilee.

Today, there is much confusion and questions concerning this controversial figure. Where can you go for the answers? The Bible.

This Bible Study aid booklet, "Jesus Christ: The Real Story" will help explain what is written in the Bible about Jesus Christ. You can discover the answers to these questions and more: Who was Jesus Christ of Nazareth? Where did He come from? When was Jesus Christ born? What did Jesus teach? Was He God in the flesh? What did Jesus look like? Was He only a man? Why did He die?

Discover the true, fascinating story that so few understand. The story of the greatest Man who ever lived and the misunderstood message He preached—the gospel (good news) of the coming Kingdom of God!

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:

"Perhaps the boldest claim Jesus made about His identity was the statement, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM” (John:8:58)...What was going on here? Jesus was revealing His identity as the actual One whom the Jews knew as God in the Old Testament."

"The New Testament writers cite messianic prophecies from the Old Testament more than 130 times. By some estimates the Old Testament contains 300 prophetic passages that describe who the Messiah is and what He will do. Of these, 60 are major prophecies. What are the chances of these prophecies being fulfilled in one person?"

"A careful analysis of Scripture, however, clearly indicates that December 25 is an unlikely date for Christ’s birth. Here are two primary reasons..."

"How can we fit “three days and three nights” between a Friday-afternoon crucifixion and a Sunday-morning resurrection?"

Very clearly written. Had read it a while ago in booklet form but as I hadn't got it with me I downloaded it on my Kindle. I'd forgotten how much of the Gospel it covers and was pleased to reread it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Reader beware: discredited theology from the fringe. 23 Mar. 2012
By Casey A. Wollberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Besides being poorly written, the "story" herein is in disagreement with the consensus of mainstream biblical scholarship. The publisher (United Church of God) is a fringe group that utilizes sensationalist "literature" such as this booklet, with its sensational title and outlandish claims, to draw in much coveted members through an appeal to novelty. I strongly urge the potential reader to research the teachings of United Church of God's parent church, Worldwide Church of God, and of its founder, Herbert W. Armstrong. I'm satisfied that anyone who does so will quickly be made aware that proper biblical scholarship does not substantiate the bizarre claims made in this booklet, and that the group responsible for it is considered by many to be a cult.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unbiblical, unbelievable, cult material 26 Mar. 2012
By J. Hizer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This religious group, United Church of God, is a splinter from the original Worldwide Church of God, well known to have been a cult. Do your research indeed, but not just in the Bible,or by following this skewed way of looking at things, but by researching the history of this church, their beliefs, cult mentality, brainwashing, and destruction of thousands of families. Think for yourself, and save yourself from getting sucked into their delusions.

There is nothing in this book, the content holds no interest of the reader and it was over when I was expecting something interesting to come.
5.0 out of 5 stars Jesus Christ the Real Story is a well written book ... 1 Sept. 2014
By Sherrie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Jesus Christ the Real Story is a well written book that gives the reader a real in depth look at who Jesus Christ was and who He is today. There are a lot of assumptions about Him, but the Bible is very clear in what it has to say.
