WHAT JESUS DID:

THE ANSWER TO WWJD

 

By Robert Prescott-Ezickson

 

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 endorsee 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 a 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 class, 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.

 

"In fresh language that brings the sayings and saving activities of Jesus into the world of the third millennium, Dr. Prescott-Ezickson shares Bible studies with emotional impact on the classic motivation for living, What would Jesus do?"
