Jesus the One and Only ~ Review

Jesus the One and Only
By Beth Moore

Jesus the One and Only takes one on a journey - a journey of the life of Jesus as seen through the eyes of Luke.  Luke is unique in his perspective in that he was the only Gentile Gospel writer, he was inspired by God  to write this account.  Where the other writers assume the reader is familiar with the culture of the day, Luke focuses on the Jewishness of Christ and the culture in which He lived.  Through Luke we see how Jesus was and is the fulfillment of Jewish law and God's promises to humanity.

We see Jesus experiencing the human experience living as an ordinary average person.  Just as Jesus asked questions, as a child in the Temple, we too should ask questions so that we may come to a greater understanding of God.  Only by seeking answers can our faith grow.  But asking isn't enough, we must also listen to the answers.  Growth and understanding are not instantaneous and it may take time to understand the answers and how they apply to us.

We see through the temptations of Jesus that temptation is not a sign of God's displeasure.  When facing temptation don't fight with your words instead do as Jesus did and fight Satan with God's Word.

Through Luke's Gospel we learn that no one goes unnoticed by Christ.  Studying the Bible is proof that we are the family of God.  The scars of the Crucifixion are a testament of this notice and love that Jesus has for us.

Jesus the One and Only has 53 chapters that cover select verses in the Gospel of Luke, every single verse is not discussed, but this in no way detracts from this study.  This study is perfect for the individual or in a group setting.  This book will help you to actively engage with God's message and not just sit on the side and watch.  We need to seek out seek out God and this book will give you a good starting point to change your life and to become more effective in your daily relationship with Him.
