Knowing Jesus Christ - who he is and what Jesus Christ did for us - is the basis for knowing everything that is involved in the Christian Faith. As we paused and spent the next week contemplating the role of the prophetic ministry it is time to take a more in-depth study of Jesus and his teaching and preaching in our attempt to go through the Bible in the span of ten weeks and get a general overview. The life and work of Jesus can be uplifting as it is Jesus who said, "Follow me". It can also assist us to communicate to others the reasons behind the reasons behind it - and this knowledge is the most valuable knowledge that we have. When we look at Jesus Christ, there must be a desire, that longing , that desire not just to be awed by and follow, but also to follow Him and follow Him, but to strive to be like Jesus and that's the main challenge that each one of us has to face.

If someone asks a question about biology we are unable to give an answer based on biology. There's no such thing! We know that Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea and not in on the West Bank!
