Previously published in hardcover as King's Cross The most influential man to ever walk the earth has had his story told in hundreds of different ways for thousands of years. Can any more be said? Now, Timothy Keller, New York Times bestselling author of The Prodigal Prophet and the man Newsweek called a “C. S. Lewis for the twenty-first century,” unlocks new insights into the life of Jesus Christ as he explores how Jesus came as a king, but a king who had to bear the greatest burden anyone ever has. Jesus the King is Keller’s revelatory look at the life of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark. In it, Keller shows how the story of Jesus is at once cosmic, historical, and personal, calling each of us to look anew at our relationship with God. It is an unforgettable look at Jesus Christ, and one that will leave an indelible imprint on every reader.

REVIEWS:

“Both the knowledge of a scholar and the imagination of a poet are brought to bear upon Jesus as child, boy, and man. . . . A bold speculative adventure.” (Harold Brighouse, Manchester Guardian) In Graves’s unique retelling, Jesus is very much a mortal and the grandson of King Herod the Great. When his father runs afoul of the King’s temper and is executed, Jesus is raised in the house of Joseph the Carpenter. The kingdom he is heir to, in this version of the story, is very much a terrestrial one: the Kingdom of Judea. Graves tells of Jesus’s rise as a philosopher, scriptural scholar, and charismatic speaker in sharp detail, as well as his arrest and downfall as a victim of pitiless Roman politics. Bringing together his unparalleled narrative skill and in-depth expertise in historical scholarship, renowned classicist and historical novelist Robert Graves brings the story of Jesus Christ to life in a strikingly unorthodox way, making this one of the most hotly contested novels Graves ever wrote—and possibly one of the most controversial ever written. It provides a fascinating new twist to a well-known story, one that fans of this historical period are sure to love. “This is not reading for the easily shocked; it definitely presents Jesus as a sage and a poet, if not divine. It moves, as does all Mr. Graves’ writing, at a brilliant fast pace, and with a tremendous style.” —Kirkus Reviews

REVIEWS:

Contemporary evangelicals have built a "salvation culture" but not a "gospel culture." Evangelicals have reduced the gospel to the message of personal salvation. This book makes a plea for us to recover the old gospel as that which is still new and still fresh. The book stands on four arguments: that the gospel is defined by the apostles in 1 Corinthians 15 as the completion of the Story of Israel in the saving Story of Jesus; that the gospel is found in the Four Gospels; that the gospel was preached by Jesus; and that the sermons in the Book of Acts are the best example of gospeling in the New Testament. The King Jesus Gospel ends with practical suggestions about evangelism and about building a gospel culture.

REVIEWS:

This is the book that the Catholic Church has been dreading for the last 1700 years. This is the book that will end Christianity as we know it. And this is not advertising hyperbole, this really is the end of the Christian fairytale. We now know who Jesus was. Visit his city, see the ruins of his citadel, gaze upon his statue, handle his coins. In reality, Jesus was a son of King Abgarus of Edessa, a king with a small realm, a large treasury, and even bigger ambitions. Thus Jesus' true history undermines much of the biblical fairystory that the gospel authors crafted, and so Christianity will never be the same again. The jacket image shows Jesus wearing his Crown of Thorns, the ceremonial crown of the Edessan monarchy. We suggest that readers start with 'Cleopatra to Christ' and then 'King Jesus'. The wait before arriving at the last episode in the trilogy will be worthwhile, for if a book could be valued on its 'eureka moments' then this final book would be priceless.

REVIEWS:

Most recent books about Jesus focus on history and biography. This book, however, focuses on culturally specific understandings of humility and meekness. Jesus the Meek King is a study of kingship in Matthew's Gospel that, unlike similar studies embedded within various commentaries on this Gospel, links meekness and kingship, placing both within the context of the Hellenistic world. In addition, it explores the specific virtue of "meekness" in Paul and in English literature from Tyndale to the present. Modern readers probably understand Jesus' use of the term "meek" to commend and exemplify submissive or humble behavior. "The meek" may even be seen unfavorably as those likely to submit tamely to oppression of injury. This provocative volume, however, proposes that Jesus as the meek king is better and more accurately understood as exercising the virtue of "disciplined calmness".

What does it mean to be a disciple? The call of discipleship is more than programs and Bible study. In King Jesus and the Beauty of Obedience-Based Discipleship, David Young presents a bold call for obedience-based discipleship and argues that it alone is the proper response to the kingship of Jesus. Many have wrongly associated obedience with bad theology, believing that Jesus' demand for obedience is a form of works righteousness or legalism. Others simply don't like obedience and resist the demands Jesus makes in calling us to follow him. But if we surrender to the kingship of Jesus, we will find the life we were designed to live. We are accustomed to calling Jesus "Savior." And we should. But until recently, many in the Western church have not learned to call Jesus "King." The kingship of Jesus has implications for how we live. We can either rebel against him, raising puppet kings and constructing our own kingdoms, or we can submit to him in obedience-based discipleship. Could it be that you are still sitting on the throne of your life, treating King Jesus as a mere advisor? What would change in your life if you started treating Jesus as nothing short of your King? Young unpacks five principles for those who wish to follow Jesus as King. Surrender to the authority of King Jesus Embrace the mission of King Jesus Live immersed in King Jesus Obey the teachings of King Jesus Behold the presence of King Jesus Following these five steps awakens us to a life truly worth living, a life of power, peace, beauty, and love. This is eternal life, that we would know and follow Jesus as King of the Universe, and king over our lives. After all, you don’t merely believe in kings. You obey them.

D'une affaire dont on croyait à peu près tout savoir, Robert Graves tire un prodigieux " thriller " politico-religieux qui ne cesse de tenir le lecteur en haleine. Sans rien inventer, il détourne, avec une érudition et un enthousiasme contagieux, textes sacrés ou historiques, de la Bible à Flavius Josèphe, pour raconter, en l'éclairant de manière totalement nouvelle, la vie d'un homme qu'un complot, ourdi de longue date par des personnages aussi divers que remarquables, destinait à devenir vraiment le Roi des Juifs, le " King Jesus " d'un royaume unifié, pacifié et indépendant. De l'enfant surdoué au prêcheur-poète-guérisseur, Graves trace le portrait d'un Jésus qui, à aucun moment, ne conteste la loi juive. Alors, par qui et pourquoi est-il condamné ? En donnant sa version de la plus célèbre mort annoncée de l'Histoire, l'auteur de ce King Jesus, devenu un classique de la littérature anglaise, nous oblige à porter un autre regard sur les fondements mêmes de notre civilisation.

REVIEWS:

Paula Fredriksen, renowned historian and author of From Christ to Jesus, begins this inquiry into the historic Jesus with a fact that may be the only undisputed thing we know about him: his crucifixion. Rome reserved this means of execution particularly for political insurrectionists; and the Roman charge posted at the head of the cross indicted Jesus for claiming to be King of the Jews. To reconstruct the Jesus who provoked this punishment, Fredriksen takes us into the religious worlds, Jewish and pagan, of Mediterranean antiquity, through the labyrinth of Galilean and Judean politics, and on into the ancient narratives of Paul's letters, the gospels, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Josephus' histories. The result is a profound contribution both to our understanding of the social and religious contexts within which Jesus of Nazareth moved, and to our appreciation of the mission and message that ended in the proclamation of Jesus as Messiah.

Recovering the church’s native language for migrants Nationalistic tribalism is on the rise around the world. How we treat strangers (foreigners, immigrants, migrants) is a promi­nent political, economic, and religious issue. Drawing on his personal experiences and expertise as a biblical scholar, Mark Hamilton argues that Scripture describes God’s people as strangers who are called to show grace and hospitality to others. The church has often identified itself as a community of strangers. This was the story of the church during much of its early history. In many parts of the world, it still is. In a world in which 240 million persons are voluntary immigrants and another 60 to 70 million are refugees, the urgency of the church’s recovery of its native language on immigration remains vital. Jesus, King of Strangers examines the Bible’s key ideas about human movement and the relationship between migrants and their hosts. Hamilton argues that reclaiming the biblical language will free the church from hypernationalism and fear-driven demagoguery.

New 2015 edition. *** Jesus discovered in the historical record *** This is the book that the Catholic Church has been dreading for the last 1700 years. This is the book that will rock the foundations of Christianity as we know it - for the biblical Jesus has at last been found in the historical record. We now know who Jesus was, where he lived, and who his family were. Visit his city, see the ruins of his citadel, gaze upon his statue, handle his coins. In reality, Jesus was a son of King Abgarus V of Edessa, a princeling with a small realm, a large treasury, and even bigger ambitions. But the wise prince of northern Syria came up against an intractable Rome and his many plans for revolution crumbled to dust. As readers might imagine, the true history of this region undermines much of the biblical fairy-story that the gospel authors crafted, and so Christianity will never be the same again. The jacket image shows Jesus wearing his Crown of Thorns, the ceremonial crown of the Edessan monarchy. Jesus was crucified wearing this same crown, because he was a king of Edessa. In fact, Jesus was crucified in the Kidron Valley along with two other leaders of the revolt, but was taken down early and survived, just as the history of Josephus Flavius relates. This is a scholarly study of all the available historical evidence, including the Tanakh, Talmud, Josephus Flavius, the Roman historians, and venerable Syriac historians like Moses of Chorene and Yohannes Drasxanakertci. This is the final book in a trilogy, and so we suggest that readers start with 'Cleopatra to Christ' and then 'King Jesus'. The wait before arriving at the last episode in the trilogy will be worthwhile, for if a book could be valued on its 'eureka moments' then this final book would be priceless. Sequel to: 'King Jesus' v 10.5 . A message to readers from the author: A review of this book by Thomas Verenna is now on many web-pages. Please note that Thomas Verenna is not an academic, he is a failed student with a religious axe to grind. Verenna has admitted that he has not even read this book, and created his poor review from hearsay and rumour. Some of Verenna's many errors include: Verenna says that Ellis absurdly conflates four kings into one. Yet in reality, the book does not even mention two of the kings that Verenna cites. Verenna says that Ellis does not realize and does mention, the fact that Adiabene and Edessa are two separate locations. Yet in reality, the juxtaposition between Adiabene and Edessa is the central topic of the entire book. Verenna says that Queen Helena was never the Queen of the Jews. Yet Queen Helena was a Jewess who saved Judaea from famine, furnished the Temple of Jerusalem, and owned the largest palace and tomb in Jerusalem. Was she not, perforce, the defacto Queen of Judaea? Verenna says that King Abgar bar Manu VI could not be the biblical Jesus, as Ellis claims, because he lived in the wrong era. Yet in reality, Ellis never mentions King Abgar bar Manu VI - not once. As readers can probably see, the so-called review of 'Jesus, King of Edessa' by Thomas Verenna is a travesty, designed to undermine scholarly research into the life of Jesus. The reality is very different, for 'Jesus, King of Edessa' can and does prove that the biblical Jesus was actually a well-known monarch of Edessa, whose real life and times have been effectively erased from history by Josephus Flavius and a succession of later Christian chroniclers.

Few subjects have been more controversial throughout history than Israel. Some say her significance ended in the first century, but if God is finished with the Jewish people, how has Israel miraculously reemerged as a state after two millennia of dispersion? Why is the rage of nations, ideologies, and religions aimed ultimately at the destruction of this group of people once predicted to bless the whole earth? And how is the church supposed to relate to a modern, secular Israel in these intensifying times? Who constitutes the true people of God--Israel or followers of Jesus? As the controversy around Israel increases, anti-Semitism rises, and the gospel mission to every people group nears completion, the global church will be forced to answer these questions. We must understand both the original Old Testament gospel mandate and exactly how the first coming of Jesus dramatically shifted redemptive history. The New Testament teaches that God's promises to both Israel and the nations will be fulfilled by One King--Jesus. Discover God's Jesus-centered solution to the conundrum of history and answer to the question, "What is true Zion, and who are the people of God?"

REVIEWS:

The church in the West is rediscovering the fact that God cares deeply for the poor. More and more, churches and individual Christians are looking for ways to practice economic discipleship, but it's hard to make progress when we are blind to our own entanglement in our culture's idolatrous economic beliefs and practices. Practicing the King's Economy cuts through much confusion and invites Christians to take their place within the biblical story of the "King Jesus Economy." Through eye-opening true stories of economic discipleship in action, and with a solid exploration of six key biblical themes, the authors offer practical ways for God's people to earn, invest, spend, compensate, save, share, and give in ways that embody God's love and provision for the world. Foreword by Christopher J. H. Wright.
