The intention of this book is to present evidence that will prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Jesus could not have been just a religious spiritual figure. Rather he was a king and leader who fought for Israel to remove the political governing rule of the Roman invaders.

Each chapter is presented with historical context to prove this claim.4/5(1). The intention of Jesus; Bowman's thesis is that "Jesus and he alone was responsible for the fusion of the two prophetic concepts noted, and everything he ever said or did was motivated by his 'intention' to fulfill the demands of the resultant Suffering Servant, Messiah of the Remnant concept."--Preface.

"Stories with Intent is a very helpful and inspiring book, written for pastors and scholars, for students of the Bible, and for laypeople interested in the teaching of Jesus. It contains an abundance of well-arranged valuable information about the history of research and the Old Testament, Jewish, Greco-Roman, and social backgrounds of the parables, at the /5(43).

This book continues with the Work of Jesus Christ, that of preaching the Good News of God's coming Kingdom, not in person but through His spirit (Acts 2) working in His Church.

Jesus Christ preached directly to Israel but since His sacrifice destroyed the barrier between the Gentiles, Acts largely deals with the gospel to Gentiles. During my last message of the “Real Questions People Ask” series, I ended it by teaching about the Bible itself.

In the final moments of the message, I gave a quick tour of how God reveals Himself in every book of the Bible. Several have asked for it, so here you go. 1 Samuel – all in one, He is the Prophet/Priest/: Philip Nation.

The parables of Jesus make up a crucial part of the Bible. Jesus had the wisdom to simplify the profound spiritual truths he needed to share with humanity in the form of relatable stories that are easy to understand.

A parable is a tale about a simple, common subject to illustrate a deeper, valuable moral lesson. Mark wrote his gospel a few years after the death of Jesus, in about A.D.

'The Chief Purpose of the Book of Job' through careful analysis and thought poses the main purpose of the Book of Job. We are not to assume God has rejected all those that suffer. God has other purposes for the suffering. This prepares people for Christ's sufferings that would otherwise be rejected.

Jesus put it this way in Luke “The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Jesus had just been criticized for going to the house of a “sinner.” Jesus responded by affirming His mission was to save people who needed saving. Their reputation for sinfulness was not a reason to avoid them; rather, it was a reason to seek them out.

John almost seems intent on writing to convince the reader that Jesus Christ is divine, that He is the incarnate God-Man, and that He is both God and Man. As such, He is the only One who can.

The main purpose of the book of Matthew was to give proof to Jewish believers that Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah. Matthew is the first book of the New Testament. While the author of the Gospel of Matthew is not identified, tradition has long assigned authorship to Matthew the apostle.

Matthew was written to Greek-speaking Jewish Christians. Stories with Intent by Klyne Snodgrass is the best book on the parables of Jesus on the market. You will not find a more thorough and erudite treatment of the subject as manageable and serviceable practical to a spectrum of readers.

Scholars and serious students and pastors should find Stories of Intent a treasure trove and essential resource/5. Luke's purpose in writing the Gospel has also suffered debate. Some suggest that Luke set out to make a case for Christianity as not being a threat to the Roman Empire.

I believe the clear purpose of Revelation is exactly what it says it is: to show us things to come — the future and the consummation of the age.

The Comforting Promise of Revelation When you are certain of your future, then you can concentrate on your present. Revelation is a blessing book; it comes with a promise. Matthew's account traces the lineage from Abraham to Jesus (41 generations), while Luke records the ancestry from Adam to Jesus (76 generations).; Matthew's genealogy is condensed and divided into three groups of 14, representing a movement through three time periods.

The first group lists the patriarchs, the second names the kings, and the third contains private citizens. Jesus then goes to Caesarea Philippi, after which he makes his way up to Jerusalem where the passion takes place. The story ends with and the resurrection of Christ.

Since the nation refused to repent, God set it aside and.When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, ‘Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.’” (verses ; NIV used in this chapter). In faith, they brought this man to Jesus to be healed, and instead of healing him, Jesus simply said that his sins were forgiven.
