1,000 Days: The Ministry of Christ

Jonathan Falwell

Paperback 2012-11-01

Publisher Description

An opportunity to meet Jesus Christ like never before. Have you ever thought that when Jesus Christ came to earth more than two thousand years ago, he could have simply given us salvation--period!--and never done another single thing? Jesus Christ could have chosen to be born of a virgin, live for 33 years in relative obscurity, die on the cross, be buried, and rise from the dead three days later, and still give us the opportunity for salvation without doing any of the things we read about in the gospels. Yet there was "more." For three years--roughly 1,000 days--Jesus served in public ministry while on earth. He didn't need to do this ministry, yet he did anyway, and that's the key for us. This intentionality implies that there is a lot of information in Scripture that we need to grapple with. We need to understand what Jesus said and did during his 1,000-day public ministry, so we can apply his teachings to our lives today. What makes these 1000 days of Christ so vitally important? Jesus' public ministry was to help us understand what true love is all about--both for God and for other people. When we love God and others first, the rest of life falls into place: our possessions, our ambitions, our hopes and our dreams. Jesus modeled everything he taught, and his invitation is to make his mission our mission too
