by Marc Carrier
Have you heard the phrase, “but what that really means is…,” explaining what Jesus said in the Scriptures, when what He actually said seems so obvious? Have you ever wondered why what Jesus said seems to contradict widely held theology and doctrine?
In The Gospel According to Jesus, you can read Jesus’ words in a fresh light. It is not meant to convince you to abandon your views, but rather to set you on a journey to rediscover the Gospel according to Jesus.
From the Foreword by David Bercot (author of several books, including Will the Real Heretics Please Stand up and The Kingdom the Turned the World Upside Down):
In “The Gospel According to Jesus: Unwrapping Centuries of Confusion,” Marc Carrier sets forth in a clear manner the historic gospel of Christianity. This is the gospel that Jesus preached, and it’s the gospel that the early Christians preached. It’s part of the “faith which was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). Although Marc sets forth this gospel in a succinct manner, everything he says is firmly supported by the words of Jesus as well as by the writings of the apostles.
But please don’t imagine that what you’re about to read is merely Marc’s personal interpretation of Jesus’ words. No, what Marc presents can be corroborated by literally hundreds—if not thousands—of quotations from the early Christians who lived shortly after the apostles died. Marc’s presentation may sound strange to some modern ears, but it would not have sounded the least bit strange to the men and women who personally heard the apostles teach and who could read the New Testament in their own native Greek. These were Christians who belonged to the churches the apostles founded, and many of them willingly died as martyrs for Christ and His gospel.
My prayer is that Marc’s small book will arouse your interest and that, like the Bereans, you will search the Scriptures and the record of history to see if these things are really so.
