Zondervan The Words & Works of Jesus Christ

The life of Jesus Christ takes on fresh clarity and meaning in this masterful work by Dwight Pentecost. The words, the miracles, and overarching message of the Messiah come alive in flowing and detailed chronology, set against the cultural, political, and religious setting of his day. You'll gain new understanding of why Jesus came, how he operated, and what he accomplished. Above all, you'll acquire a deeper appreciation for the love that guided his path, beginning in a manger in Bethlehem, leading through three and a half years of ministry that ended abruptly at the cross on Golgotha, and blazing forth in eternal triumph at the resurrection. Drawing liberally on the works of others who have written about Christ, such as Alfred Edersheim, J. W. Shepherd, W. Graham Scroggie, and Frederick Faraar, Dr. Pentecost reveals in his own writing a familiarity with the subject that comes from years of teaching. Yet he writes, not as one who knows all there is to know about Christ, but with the restraint of one who knows that Jesus is to be worshiped and adored as the great King, and that no book can do more than begin to tell all the wonders of his being and his love.

This is a harmonic study of the Gospels, much like older work of Shepard’s (Christ of the Gospels) work. It centers upon the life of Christ and relates each event found in the Gospels. It relates a literal method that Jesus Christ was introduced as Messiah and dispensational in approach. Make an ideal College textbook for introduction to the life of Christ. Good basic study with insights that are historical, exegetical, and devotional. A very reader friendly and helpful book. You will enjoy this work.

This book is a must for all who venture to have a better understanding of the work that Jesus not only engaged in but also accomplished. His very words were not only prophetic but also true. Thanks for the resource.

As with any Pentecost work, this is an excellent offering. Words and Works provides an intensive look into the Jesus of the Gospels. You will find a thorough treatment of the life of Jesus and the importance of His works relating to the proclaimation, postponement and promise of the kingdom He came to establish. This book is good for anyone from the casual reader to the serious Bible scholar wishing to learn more of the truths of the life and times of Jesus.
