by Walter D. Zorn, The Faithfulness Of Jesus The Messiah Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Faithfulness Of Jesus The Messiah book, Strange how one little word, the Greek word pistis, can make a profound difference in understanding the Bible. Pistis is usually translated "faith," but in different contexts of the New Testament the word can have several other meanings such as "faithfulness," "trustworthiness," "solemn promise or oath," "proof or pledge," "conviction," and "doctrine (of the Christian faith)." This book will challenge the reader's understanding of Paul's expression pistis Christou, "faith/faithfulness of Christ," and the use of the pistis word group (verb, noun, and adjective) throughout the New Testament. Given the Old Testament background to this word, one will learn how the apostle Paul utilized an obscure phrase from the prophet Habakkuk to refer to a coming Messiah who in turn lived in faithfulness to the Father's will to die on a cross for the sins of the world. This book will reveal how the gospel is emphasized throughout the New Testament in terms of "the faithfulness of Jesus the Messiah." New and fresh interpretations of various texts will challenge the traditional understandings of such texts. When a person comprehends pistis as God's faithfulness and the Messiah's faithfulness, the only human response is pistis itself, meaning faithfulness as described in Hebrews 11. God is faithful and Jesus is faithful. Will he find us faithful?
by Andreas J. Kostenberger, A Theology Of John S Gospel And Letters Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Theology Of John S Gospel And Letters book, A Theology of John’s Gospel and Letters introduces the first volume in the BTNT series. Building on many years of research and study in Johannine literature, Andreas Köstenberger not only furnishes an exhaustive theology of John’s Gospel and letters, but also provides a detailed study of major themes and relates them to the Synoptic Gospels and other New Testament books. Readers will gain an in-depth and holistic grasp of Johannine theology in the larger context of the Bible. D. A. Carson (Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) says about Köstenberger’s volume that “for the comprehensiveness of its coverage in the field of Johannine theology (Gospel and Letters), there is nothing to compare to this work.” I. Howard Marshall (University of Aberdeen) writes, “This book is a ‘first’ in many ways: the first volume that sets the pattern for the quality and style of the new Biblical Theology of the New Testament series published by Zondervan; the first major volume to be devoted specifically to the theology of John’s Gospel and Letters at a high academic level; and the first volume to do so on the basis that here we have an interpretation of John’s theology composed by an eyewitness of the life and passion of Jesus.” The Biblical Theology of the New Testament Series The Biblical Theology of the New Testament (BTNT) series provides upper college and seminary-level textbooks for students of New Testament theology, interpretation, and exegesis. Pastors and discerning theology readers alike will also benefit from this series. Written at the highest level of academic excellence by recognized experts in the field, the BTNT series not only offers a comprehensive exploration of the theology of every book of the New Testament, including introductory issues and major themes, but also shows how each book relates to the broad picture of New Testament theology.
by Stephen S. Kim, The Miracles Of Jesus According To John Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Miracles Of Jesus According To John book, In our age of theological relativism, Jesus' question to His own disciples continues to ring true: "Who do the people say that the Son of Man is?" Through Jesus' seven miracles and His seven "I Am" sayings, the apostle John provides a clear answer to that all-important question. Furthermore, what do Jesus' miracles represent? Are they designed to point to something or someone? In our "supernatural-crazed" culture that affects even evangelical Christianity, it is refreshing to be reminded that biblical miracles were never arbitrary but were always purposeful, authenticating God's message and His messenger(s). In the Gospel of John, the miracles of Jesus are both Christological, that is, they highlight Jesus' Person, and eschatological, that is, they foreshadow the work the Messiah will do in His future Advent. The miracles remind us that God's desire for every believer is first and foremost a spiritual relationship with Him through His Son. Furthermore, Jesus' miracles also remind us that God's work in and for every believer will be fully and ultimately realized in the everlasting life.

by Rick Hertless, The Power We Leave On The Table Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Power We Leave On The Table book, The Power We Leave on the Table is a book that looks into the power of Christianity available to those who walk in the saving grace of Jesus Christ. The power of the Holy Spirit is available to all who call on the name of Jesus. Nevertheless, the power given to his followers at his ascension is denied and rejected daily by believers. Many have decided not to "pick up" the gifts that have been freely given to those who follow Jesus Christ. God has given all believers gifts to complete the task in which they are called. 1 Corinthians 12:11 says, "All these (gifts) are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines (NIV)." God does not want his children to be ignorant about the blessings he has supplied to those who are willing to accept them. However, his power goes beyond the gifts. There is abundance in every breath of every believer who lives for Christ. His abundance resides in his saving grace and is manifested to those in whom he loves through his power. It is up to you to decide to use his power and learn of his greatest gift of salvation through Christ. Accept the wealth of Jesus as we learn to pick up The Power We Leave on the Table.
