Amazed: Why the Humanity of Jesus Matters
God’s Big Idea
We are made in God’s image. God provided rules for healthy living and a
sacrificial practice as a means to worship him. Yet we chose to separate
from God and go our own way—we couldn’t follow God’s rules without
Enter Jesus. He came as a man, in the same image as we are created.
He lived a sinless life and is the only effective sacrifice to pay the price
that we deserve for our hurtful choices. Richard Bahr’s book, Amazed:
Why the Humanity of Jesus Matters, helps unpack how Jesus lived out
his humanity—and how that humanity helps us connect to him and the
Father more effectively.
