The Manifesto of Jesus
Paperback, 208 pages, Page Size: 210 x 140 mm, ISBN: 978-0-9569464-0-9
Imagine having the opportunity to interview Jesus Christ as he went about his ministry on earth. How would he define the ‘essence’ of his calling, passion and life’s work?
How might this insight bring fresh light and definition to the nature of Christianity today?
I believe Jesus’ answer would be along the lines of the words found in Luke 4: 18-19:
God’s Spirit is on me;
he’s chosen me to preach the message of good news to the poor,
Sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and
recovery of sight to the blind,
To set the burdened and battered free,
to announce, “This is God’s year to act!”
Essence seeks to explore Jesus’ manifesto and capture images of what it looks like when his vision comes to earth through the lives of his followers.
