In Jesus, the One and Only, best-selling author and Bible teacher Beth Moore invites you to know Christ personally. Watch and listen as He breaks up a funeral by raising the dead, confronts conniving religious leaders of His day, teaches on a Galilean hillside, or walks on the waves and calms the storm.
“Our obedience to apply the Word of God is so we can live victorious lives that glorify our Father in heaven. Hearing it is simply not enough.” (Page 137)
“Jesus. The Greek spelling is Iesous, transliterated from the Hebrew Yeshu’a (Joshua). Keep in mind that Christ’s earthly family spoke a Semitic language closely related to Hebrew (called Aramaic), so He would have been called Yeshu’a. One of the things I like best is that it was a common name. After all, Jesus came to seek and to save common people like me. Most pointedly, the name Jesus means ‘Savior.’ Others may have shared the name, but no one else would ever share the role.” (Page 13)
“He wants us to understand that the greatest cause we have for joy is not what we do but who we are. We are children of the eternal El Elyon. Our names are recorded in heaven. We are very wise to find our joy in who we are because of Him, rather than what we can do because of Him.” (Page 192)
“If we don’t make the deliberate choice to have in mind the things of God when faced with our biggest challenges, most of us will probably default back to our natural instinct—the things of man.” (Page 166)
“The Creator and Sustainer of the universe was ready to answer a prayer that had been prayed for hundreds of years, but He purposely chose a man who could pray an old prayer with a fresh heart.” (Page 5)
