When children are sold into slavery-what good is Jesus? When wretched disease takes a loved one's life-what good is Jesus? When marriages crumble and jobs disappoint-what good is Jesus? Many know of Jesus, but few actually know Him. The real entity of Jesus has been tainted by how His followers have portrayed His image in their lives. The institution of religion has overtaken the beauty of relationship, and many Christians are walking away with a bitter taste. Faced with declining opportunities, a war-torn globe, and seemingly-insurmountable crises, many millennials are asking the sincere question: what good is Jesus? Pastor Marv Nelson doesn't avoid tough questions; instead, he tackles issues head-on with love and wisdom. Examining sexuality, politics, racial tensions, suffering, and more, Nelson addresses these problems through a relational rather than religious approach and shows us just what good Jesus really is.

The acronym WWJD (What would Jesus do?) has become a popular device for making ethical and moral decisions, and evaluating how we should act in a wide range of situations. But this seemingly ubiquitous slogan has also been used to trivialize Jesus and use his name to endorse some activity or product. Now we also hear questions like: What would Jesus eat? What would Jesus wear? What would Jesus drive? Enough already! If you want to consider this question seriously, then the best way to find the answer to WWJD is to investigate what Jesus actually did while he was here on earth. Jesus Christ was a real man who lived in a real time and a real place--and his words and deeds are recorded in the four Gospels. Once we carefully study the Gospels and become familiar with what Jesus did, then we will be in a better position to discern what Jesus would do now. What Jesus Did is an in-depth look at the life of Jesus, including his birth, his parables, his miracles, his sayings, his death, and his resurrection. The unique format of this study guide makes it an excellent resource for a preaching series, Sunday school lessons, group Bible study, or personal devotional reading. Each chapter is built around a series of questions to help you gain deeper meaning and insight from the scriptures. And because Jesus expects us to turn learning into doing and live according to his example, each chapter also includes a WWJD action step for applying his teachings in our daily lives.

This unique phrase-by-phrase exposition reads the Lord's Prayer as Jesus' description of God. Our heavenly Father is the perfect parent beyond our dreams who loves, provides, forgives, and ultimately protects. Finding our parent, we discover who we really are and enter a kingdom without boundaries. The Prayer of Jesus is not a somber duty; it is the essence of the gospel's happy news. "If laughter is forbidden in heaven," said Martin Luther, "I don't want to go there."
