In the Bible, knowing carries with it the connotation of intimacy. To enjoy eternal life now, we must have a knowing and intimate relationship with Christ. Relationship and intimacy bring with them the creation of a new nature and purpose, of forward movement to a fruitful adult discipleship; they also provide a clear understanding of salvation and the process of growing into a mature disciple. The church can provide nurture through small groups and other team-building ministries, but to become a disciple requires a personal commitment. How Should We Then Live? will explain how to form this very special relationship with Jesus Christ.
In Behold the Man, author Jay R. Leach shows that Jesus Christ is at work today exactly as he was during his lifetime as a man on earth two thousand years ago. Through scriptural examples, stories, and anecdotes, Leach describes how Jesus carries out the same loving and caring, reconciliatory, eternal plan of God just as he did through a physical body. Leach teaches that Jesus now works through a multifaceted corporate body known as the church, whose ministry is the same humanity Jesus attended to, experiencing the same issues, attitudes, and problems.
Behold the Man communicates that Jesus is among mankind today incarnate in ordinary Christian men, women, girls, and boys—energizing our spirits, imparting his truth into our hearts, infusing resurrection power in us, and working his purpose through us in the world.
