Jesus doesn’t always tell you what you want to hear. But He always tells you what you need to hear, and even the hard words are a gift given to you in love.
In Jesus Said What?, author Christopher Kennedy tackles some of Jesus' words that people may struggle to understand. It may seem easier to avoid some of Jesus' tough sayings, but instead of shying away from these passages, Kennedy urges readers to look to Scripture to understand Scripture.
As the Ten Commandments are connected with the words of Jesus, Kennedy demonstrates the Law, but reminds Christians to stay firmly focused on the forgiveness and grace that comes through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He brings clarity to fifteen of Jesus' most difficult teachings, on topics such as money, family relationships, and consequences for sin. Each chapter explores one teaching of Jesus by looking at His full treatment of the topic, parallel passages throughout the Bible, and the biblical context to help readers come to a faithful and faith-enriching understanding of Jesus' words.
