Who is Jesus Christ, in reality? What was once his life about? Our thorough, full-color revision of the preferred Jesus of History, Christ of Faith invites students to explore the life of Jesus through a Christological study of the New Testament. The student text for ninth and tenth graders first considers the New Testament as an entire, particularly the Gospels, and explains the Jewish historical, religious, and cultural world into which Jesus was once born. The use of the Gospels as the main source, the text explores Jesus’ birth, early life, and ministry; then it specializes in the scriptural accounts of his death, the Resurrection, the Ascension, and Pentecost, and on their central significance for the Church’s working out of Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus of History, Christ of Faith won the 1999 Certificate of Merit for the Premier Print Award from the Printing Industries of The usa.
