Immersing ourselves in the teachings of Jesus helps center us in his truth.
Jesus is unlike any other person who ever walked this planet. Jesus changed the life and destiny of every person he encountered who saw in him the uniqueness of God’s Son, our Savior.
—Dr. Woodrow Kroll, from the foreword to The Life of Jesus
The single most significant piece of evidence we have regarding the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is the Bible. If you want to know what he really said, really did, and really claimed, you need to read the Bible.
Wherever Jesus went, whomever he met, whatever challenges he faced, the Gospel writers were there. They kept a record of every important lesson Jesus shared with his closest disciples as well as the sermons he proclaimed to the huge crowds that followed him.
The greatest love you can show is to give your life for your friends. You are my friends if you obey my commandments.
Jesus said to his disciples, “Suppose one of you has a friend. Suppose you go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, let me borrow three loaves of bread. A friend of mine on a trip has dropped in on me, and I don’t have anything to serve him.’ Your friend might answer you from inside his house, ‘Don’t bother me! The door is already locked, and my children are in bed. I can’t get up to give you anything.’ I can guarantee that although he doesn’t want to get up to give you anything, he will get up and give you whatever you need because he is your friend and because you were so bold.
