Jesus in the House: Gospel Reflections on Christ's Presence in the Home
The word "home" is used thirty-three times and the word "house" ninety-nine times in the Gospels of the New Revised Standard Version Bible. While many of us typically envision a Jesus who publicly preached in the streets and on the hillsides of Palestine, Jesus also ministered often in the home. <br.<br> "Why was it that Jesus spent so much of his time in the homes and houses of the people?" Allan Wright asks. "How did Jesus' own experience of home assist in his formation throughout his childhood and facilitate his understanding of the importance of home? More importantly, what lessons are there for us? Do we still need the presence of Jesus in our homes today? How much different would homes be today if we taught, forgave, healed and shared meals like Jesus did?" <br><br> Biblical scholar Allan Wright explores twenty-nine usages of home in the Scriptures, offering a reflection on the Gospel story, a prayer, reflection questions and challenges to the reader. Written for families, small groups or personal use, <i>Jesus in the House</i> encourages all of us to bring the presence of Christ into our homes.
