Description

Alex retells these eye–witness stories of Jesus. These people tell their stories as eye witnesses of those who were actually there. They are:

Mary, mother of Jesus, Gaius Maximus, centurion, Joanna’s story of John The Baptist, woman at the well, Simon the Pharisee, Gadarene Demoniac, Jairus, Simon Peter, Rich ruler, Bartimaeus & Zacchaeus, John and Marcellus a Roman officer.

Using Biblical, contemporary and background data, Alex MacDonald skilfully tells the stories of those who were with Jesus at key points in his life.

It unfolds as if you were on the spot looking on. The stories are based on factual evidence of what really happened. This book will capture your imagination causing you to ask “What would my reaction have been if I had been there?” or “Was this really what happened”?

Endorsements

"Having heard the chapter on Joanna I can appreciate the living situation from which the skilful telling of these stories has come. They are a practical and helpful reminder that we often fail to capture people's imagination in telling the exciting story the narrative of the New Testament provides. The writer's motivation is that of an earnest communicator of the gospel who commendably tries every helpful approach to help his readers and listeners to understand the greatest good news there is."

Derek Prime, (1931–2020)Author and former pastor of Charlotte Chapel, Edinburgh

"The author, minister of Buccleuch and Greyfriars Free Church in Edinburgh and a former Editor of the Free Church Monthly Record, has skilfully brought together a collection of first-person narratives written through the eyes of those who knew Jesus. Using biblical references and other background resources, MacDonald offers responses to the question: 'do you know Jesus' through the eyes of those who knew him, from his mother Mary, to Simon Peter, the Apostle John and Zacchaeus, the tax collector. Written in a lively and original style, each chapter can be enjoyed individually or as part of a wider study of the lives of those who knew Jesus.
