Encounter: Face to Face with Jesus paints a picture of who Jesus is through the eyes of seventeen different New Testament people who encountered him and/or knew him intimately. Encounter: Face to Face with Jesus looks at the person of Jesus, the power of Jesus, and the glory of Jesus, infusing biblical examples that show how Jesus interacted with people from all walks of life. This book will benefit readers by offering them a glimpse into how Jesus interacted with different people, and giving insights into his principles of the human-divine relations.
Ultimately, Encounter: Face to Face with Jesus will answer questions such as
“How can I meet Him in a similar way? How can I allow Jesus to transform my life?” (Page xv)
“While Nicodemus may have wanted to have a theological discussion about the source of miraculous power, Jesus wanted something different. Nicodemus would soon learn that Jesus wasn’t just a teacher come from God; He was God come to teach.” (Page 19)
“The people who met Jesus up close were profoundly transformed.” (Page xv)
“As you gain new insights into His style, His promises, and even His challenges and rebukes, your relationship with Him will grow. Someone once noted that ‘God is never greater than our present understanding of Him.’ In other words, we will relate to God only at the level that we know Him.” (Page 9)
“Faith would be the key that would unlock the door to God’s Kingdom.” (Page 23)
