Ph.D. Msgr. Leonard F. Badia
Jesus: Introducing His Life and Teaching is a concise summary of the human and divine Jesus. It explores key biblical issues: the resurrection of Jesus, the humanity and divinity of Jesus, The Dead Sea Scrolls and Jesus' human knowledge and the Shroud of Turin. The last chapter discusses practical questions about Jesus. Did Jesus have brothers and sisters? Did Jesus predict the end of the work? What about the virginal birth of Jesus? Do the gospels record the exact works of Jesus? Msgr. Badia writes in an informative, simple and very practical style in line with the best modern biblical scholarship. He portrays the historical Jesus found in the New Testament writing with great liveliness and charm. This book makes a valuable introduction or textbook for high school and college student as well as discussion groups or classes since each chapter is followed by a series of discussion questions.
