Life of Jesus Christ in Its Historical Connexion and Historical Developement.

by Augustus Neander


Neander believed that as a historian, he had a duty to retell Jesus' life story in writing. Like an artist who paints a picture of Jesus according to his or her vision, Neander was inspired to produce the image of Jesus as a historical teacher and figure. This investigation into the life and ministry of Jesus begins with his birth and childhood. From there, Neander explores the culture in which Jesus lived before his public ministry began. Then, Neander provides readers with a descriptive analysis of Christ's public ministry, first giving us a detailed account of Jesus' time in preparation for his ministry. While studying the public ministry of Christ, readers will discover fascinating details about Christ's method, his miracles, and his selection and training of the apostles. The author even examines the individual encounters that Jesus had in a variety of different cities that he visited during his ministry. Neander's historical investigation of Jesus' life and works in an incredibly edifying project that will enlighten Christians in their spiritual studies.
