Learn what a great savior Jesus is—and the difference he can make in your life.
Why did Jesus come to earth? And what is the significance of the key events of the most important person who ever lived? Do they affect us today?
Milestones of the Master provides satisfying answers to these basic questions, and it demonstrates the Jesus is indeed God’s best solution to man’s deepest needs. The books does so by examining twelve critical events in the life of Jesus, such as His birth, temptation, transfiguration, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and pouring out of His Spirit.
A beloved and gifted Bible teacher, Warren Wiersbe not only explains the meaning of each event in God’s redemptive plan, but he goes one step further to show the personal significance of each event. His study has the happy result of exalting Christ and applying His work of grace and guidance to needy sinners.
“Some critics wonder why God was so strict with His people Israel during those formative centuries, but we must remember that Israel was called to reveal God to the Gentiles and to bring God’s Son into the world. Whenever Israel went after idols and abandoned the Lord, they were jeopardizing that wonderful plan of salvation.” (Page 6)
“Our Lord needed a human body so that, in His death, resurrection, and ascension, He would defeat the devil and enable us to live victoriously. ‘He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifest, that He might destroy the works of the devil’ (1 John 3:8).” (Page 8)
“Our Lord needed a human body so that He could experience what we experience and become our High Priest and Advocate. When our Lord returned to heaven, He took with Him a glorified body that had experienced birth, growth, toil, weariness, hunger and thirst, pain, and death.” (Page 10)
“Freedom is life controlled by truth and motivated by love. ‘And you shall know the truth,’ said Jesus, ‘and the truth shall make you free.… Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed’ (John 8:32, 36).” (Page 24)
