Following Jesus (Book 1) – Who is Jesus and What Does it Mean to Follow Him?

Author: Timothy R. Gaines, Kara Lyons-Pardue

Prophet. Priest. King.

Jesus challenged common assumptions in his day. Is he doing the same today?
Following Jesus: Prophet, Priest, King draws from biblical history to explore the origin and significance of three Old Testament offices and the way Jesus both fulfills and redefines them in a manner no one expected:

Jesus the prophet cries out for and establishes justice.
Jesus the priest mediates to us a God we never expected.
Jesus the king offers to us a politic all his own.

Join Tim Gaines, Kara Lyons-Pardue, and other biblical scholars, pastors, and theologians from around the globe as they invite us to re-envision a cross-bearing Jesus—the prophet, priest, and king who upends our preconceptions about his life and ministry.  

Timothy R. Gaines, PhD, is associate professor of religion at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, where he teaches courses in theology and ethics and directs the graduate program in theology and biblical studies.
