Getting Jesus Wrong

by Matt Johnson

Getting Jesus Wrong Synopsis

If you met Jesus today, and he asked, ';What do you want from me?' what would you say? When Jesus asked that question long ago, he got a variety of answers. Some wanted a miracle, some a theological debate, some a sign that he was the Messiah, some wanted power, some wanted just to see him, and others wanted to get rid of him. We are much the same aren't we? We all want something from Jesus. We are just hoping for a little help to get through lifea new direction, a purpose that will get us up in the morning, an exercise plan, a way to get organized. But that approach to Jesus doesn't result in real faith or love.The real Jesus doesn't give us just a little help. He turns our world upside down. Getting Jesus right means a whole new way of thinking (the way up is down) and a whole new way of life (daily dependence on the one who knows the beginning from the end). Instead of a blueprint for living or a new workout plan, we get a rich life where the simple truths of the gospel inform our everyday life with each other. Where we daily remember our deep need for forgiveness, the joy of being forgiven, and gradually become those who receive grace and share grace with those around us.Aimed at a young adult audience who has drifted from the church, by unpacking the ways the author got Jesus wrong, with a strong call to meet the biblical Christ.An easytoread introduction to the living God for those who say they have tried Christianity and it doesn't work.A call to a radical, robust discipleship based on a biblical view of who Christ is and who he calls his people to be.
