Divided into three sections, Understanding Jesus presents historical and scriptural background to knowing Jesus better. The book outlines fifty reasons based on: "What We Can Know About Jesus?" "Why Was Jesus Remembered?" and "Why Might Jesus Matters to Us?" Using archaeological and Christian sources the book provides evidence for Jesus' life. Among the many topics presented, the book examines the four images of Jesus presented in the gospels, the context of Jesus' life, his miracles, his relationships, his death, the concept of the Trinity, and the question of his divinity. Finally, the book presents the ways that Jesus is remembered and present in the community today. In coming to know Jesus, we come to realise why he continues to matter and why he is Good News.
