This is DVD number seven in the "Stuff" series. Here Bruce Wurdeman looks at what Luke and John have to say about the purpose of Jesus' life, ministry and mission-from the manger to the cross and beyond.
The life of Christ has been the subject of fascination, reverence and faith for centuries. From His miraculous birth to Mary to His torturous road to the cross-dying for the sins of the world-Jesus' life is known to mankind in large measure because of the Gospels of Luke and John. Here the Word (Jesus) is revealed through these writers' varied perspectives: one, Luke, a companion to eyewitnesses of Jesus and a meticulous student of the life of Christ; the other, John, a disciple and personal friend of Jesus Himself. Together these two books offer a remarkable view of God at work in the world through the life of His "only begotten Son."
