Jesus’ Words as recorded in the gospels are the Foundation of Christianity. In ‘Jesus Indeed’ rediscover what Christianity is according to the Words of Jesus, and based on His life.
There are many shades and versions of Christianity, born of different interpretations by disciples, followers, and evangelists. What is right or wrong, and which way believers should embrace?
A matter of fact is that according to Scripture, even the most committed believers have made mistakes in following Jesus, undoubtedly because of the human factor involved. Therefore, what path should a Christian follow?
In this thoroughly documented book based on over 40 years of extensive and dedicated study of the Gospels, Joseph Torie claims the answer is in Jesus’ own words as recorded in the Gospels.
In Jesus Indeed, Torie:
• defines what a Christian is according to the words of Christ and points out where, according to Scripture, even some of the early ‘followers’ missed the path of Jesus’ words;
• places the Lord’s words in the Gospels above the claims of the New and Old Testaments as well as above the teaching of the most ardent apostles, and followers; explaining why this is necessary;
• helps the reader to rediscover the treasures of the words of Jesus in the Gospels, the Way, the Truth and the Life.
The book challenges certain practices and beliefs of the Church that contradict Jesus’ teachings; practices adopted from some of the epistles of the New Testament or of the traditions of the Old Testament. Torie brings up that even Saint Paul helped to encourage a temple based Christianity and an observance of the Law of Moses by compromising in Jerusalem, in defiance of the warnings of the Spirit. The samples offered are controversial in nature, just as when Jesus’ said to the religious leaders of that day, “You have made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition” (Matthew 15: 6).
Finally, ‘Jesus Indeed’ focuses on God’s Grace, infinite Love and Merciful Justice, which Jesus placed way above religious dogma and the keeping of religious laws and traditions.
