For the first time in 2,000 years, this book analyzes the Gospel of John and unveils the historical Jesus, His identity, and image of God. All words, parables, and miracle stories are decoded and interpreted, and all unheard-of facts and truths are disclosed. It is revealed that Peter was a sinner in the village of sinners; that Peter, James, John, and Andrew were not fisherman, but were spiritual fisherman who preached to the suffering people of the village of sinners and harvested the holy spirit from them; that Jesus saved one thousand men by preaching 10-20 times at the villages of sinners for three years; that Jesus cleared the temple spiritually, not physically, with his Word; that Jesus' Passover meal was not the mutton but the word and holy spirit; and that the God's last judgment was concluded in AD 70. These facts are disclosed when the scriptures are read in spiritual language. It turns out that the four Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John have never been interpreted correctly. As a result, Christianity has lost Jesus for nearly 2,000 years and follows the path of ruin. Now it is revealed that the Gospel of John contains astonishing revelations and good news which will rescue Christianity from extinction and lead all mankind to God. This book speaks to Biblical scholars, Christians who worry about the corruption of churches and extinction of Christianity, and those who want to receive the Holy Spirit and meet Jesus and God.

In the tradition of empowering spiritual writers such as Ilanya Vanzant, Bishop Vashti McKenzie offers women a Christian path to personal transformation. A groundbreaking preacher who, in 2000, became the first woman to serve as bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, Bishop McKenzie is renowned for her eloquence and passion in the pulpit. Now she brings her inspirational message to readers through the biblical story of the meeting at the well between Jesus and the Samaritan woman. In twelve lessons, McKenzie interweaves the Samaritan woman's experiences with contemporary personal stories, Bible quotations, life-affirming sayings, and meditational activities. Through them she shows women that if they hold onto hope and listen for their moments of epiphany, they can accomplish anything.

Christianity has an inherent capability to assume, as its novel mode of expression, the local idioms, customs, and thought forms of a new cultural frontier that it encounters. As a result, Christianity has become multicultural and multilingual. What is the role of theology in the imagination and articulation of Christianity's inherent multiculturalism and multi-vernacularity? Victor Ezigbo examines this question by exploring the nature and practice of contextual theology. To accomplish this task, this book engages the main genres of contextual theology, explores echoes of contextual theological thinking in some of Jesus's sayings, and discusses insights into contextual theology that can be discerned in the discourses on theology and caste relations (Dalit theology), theology and primal cultures (African theology), and theology and poverty (Latin American liberation theology).
