Jesus

Jesus

On 10/10 Angel Linda wrote: The back cover of the book states that Biographies of Jesus generally have been written by those trying to investigate the historical Jesus, with little attention given to the grand narrative of Scripture. On the flip side, those interested in tracing the theology of Scripture are typically disinterested ... Jesus A Theography
