"Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered. . . ." Hebrews 5:8 (NIV) Christians across the centuries have agreed upon three basic truths: Jesus was fully God, he was fully human, and he was one person. But if Jesus was fully human (and he was), how did he experience that humanity? How did he learn (and as a human he had to learn) that he was the Messiah? What experiences did he have as a child and as a young man? Did he ever doubt? How did he experience shame, guilt, temptation, anger, and love? How could he endure the cross? These questions and many others are answered in this provocative but plausible "interview" with Jesus. Using clues provided by Old Testament messianic prophecies and the New Testament Gospels, Hodges presents an emotionally powerful and theologically orthodox re-creation of Jesus' life from birth to resurrection."Dr. Hodges has employed a sanctified imagination, rooted in the Gospels, to create a profile of the Word-made-flesh that is wholly reasonable, wholly honoring to the precious doctrine of the Incarnation." -D. Bruce Lockerbie, Chairman, PAIDEIA, Inc. "[Hodges] has sought to combine the insights he has gained from in-depth study of human psychology with a speculative portrait of the human nature of the earthly Jesus. . . . His efforts in this volume are fascinating and profoundly interesting." -R. C. Sproul, President, Ligonier Ministries "A helpful new and fresh look at the incarnation and at some very ancient questions. We won't use this book as a basis for a new theology, but the one we already have will be enriched, challenged, and deepened." -Jay Kesler, Chancellor, Taylor University Andrew G.
