Will the real Jesus please stand up?

What has shaped your opinion of Jesus? Is it the Church? Christians? The Bible?

Is the Jesus that has been presented to the world the real Jesus?

Have a look at this video of Michael Frost, titled Becoming the Poor, and see if it challenges your thinking on who Jesus is and who we should be.

I interviewed Michael Frost some months ago and recently finished reading his book, Exiles: Living Missionally in a Post-Christian Culture. I find that he has a lot of interesting things to say to those who have grown weary of a ‘church’ that seems to have largely lost its way.

I spotted the video in this post on Shari’s blog, Jesus Outside the Box and had to share it with you.

If you want to use the video for a larger group of people you can purchase a copy and lots of other great resources at The Work of the People.
