The Complete New Testament Studies
When faced with the descriptions of miracles and the teachings and parables of Christ as recorded in the New Testament, it can be difficult to know what to make of them. Should they be accepted as the literal truth or dismissed as stories from a less enlightened time?
In this collection of essays, Rudolf Frieling draws on his deep knowledge and insight to make the events of the New Testament more understandable to modern readers. He returns to the Greek text to uncover the meaning and power of the original language. He explains difficult concepts such as the Son of God and the Son of Man, and traces the path of Christ's incarnation from the Baptism in Jordan through to his death, resurrection, and ascension. Frieling also examines the parables and accounts of miraculous healings, as well as the testimonies given in Acts and the apostolic letters. The author also offers a profound examination of the Apocalypse and the Transfiguration.
Rudolf Frieling's masterful analysis surpasses the dry concepts and conventional explanations of many biblical commentaries and brings the events of the New Testament vividly to life. The result is a work that continues to be important for understanding the New Testament today.
