A Portrait of Jesus

Pete Briscoe

Many theologians have painted a picture of Jesus that's based on who they believe Him to be. However, some of the portraits look more like abstract art than a likeness of our Savior! Sure, their visions are colorful and interesting, but they're nothing like Him! 

The problem is many believers are drawn in by inaccurate pictures of Jesus, captivated by the stories, and weakened in their beliefs. After all, if Jesus isn't exactly who He says He is, then what is the point of our faith? 

Have we become so bored with the awesomeness of Jesus that we want there to be more excitement to His story? Or have we become so distant from the Word that we simply don't know all He did and said? Pete explores the inaccurate pictures that exist about Jesus in this 6-message series. He takes us then on a whirlwind trip through the Bible to find the truth about who Jesus is by studying how Jesus described Himself!

  1. 5. The Middle Man

    Pete Briscoe

    The greatest "representative" of all time—perfect at representing his constituency—is Jesus Christ. In protestant theology, there are three roles attributed to Jesus Christ: Prophet, Priest, and King. Both prophet and priest are roles that require representation. A prophet is not someone who looks to the future and tells us what's going to happen but rather someone who speaks for God. So Jesus in His role as prophet represents God. As priest, Jesus represents us to God. In both cases, He's the middle man.

  2. 6. The Hinge

    Pete Briscoe

    On a door we have a hinge, but the hinge is manifested in three hinges. The hinge of the resurrection is manifested in three hinges, too—the historical hinge, the theological hinge, and the moral hinge. Not only is the resurrection of Jesus Christ the hinge of history, it is the hinge of theology. If Jesus didn't rise from the dead, all theology, all the Bible, is a joke. If Jesus did rise from the dead, it's all truth. The moral hinge is the choice each one of us has to make when we look at the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
