Dear Pastor Jim,
I am looking forward for your book to come out. I can't wait to read it next year.
This doesn't have anything really to do with the 50 questions, but I needed some help. At school, I have to find the definition of Jesus. I have looked online, and in a dictionary but have not been able to find it. What would you say that Jesus means?? Thank you!!

What an interesting assignment! I believe that you could attempt to define Jesus simply by using characteristics that describe Him. To use mere human terms just doesn't seem to capture a true definition. Defining Jesus by "who He is" seems to be the best way to go. For example, Jesus is good. Defined not just by actions, but by the fact that it is His very nature.

It also seems as though defining Jesus puts Him into a box, which I think is actually impossible. He is beyond what we can understand. What a beautiful thing to keep us constantly seeking after Him, to gain understanding about Him. This being the daily goal of becoming more Christ-like! I would be interested in reading your answer~ maybe you can post it when you finish!
