About the Book

Jesus Christ presents Himself in various roles in the New Testament. Each chapter of this book looks at one aspect of His revelation to humanity and helps the reader prayerfully reflect on the meaning of that role in an individual's life. The first chapter relates to His role as a friend. Someone who is truly concerned for the welfare of another is a friend to be desired. There is a reason He referred to Himself as a friend in relating to His closest followers. The reflection questions at the end of the chapter provide the tools for examining this role in the life of the individual. Other roles such as Wonderful Counselor, Good Shepherd, and Great High Priest are treated similarly. The concluding chapter has to do with the ultimate question each person must face, death. Jesus Christ is the way to eternal life--in fact, the only way. This chapter looks at the parallel between the materialists of the generation when Jesus was in physical form on the earth and how that same mindset persists today, robbing people of receiving the gift of eternal life He has purchased and offers freely.
