This compelling new book addresses this most relevant question--What is Jesus like and doing today? The author first suggests that to get to know someone, anyone, it is important we learn about their past-what they were like and what they did. But what is more important is what they are like and doing today. Why so? It's because people change. Well, so has Jesus. Yet every week in churches around the world people gather to hear a story. For almost two thousand years that story has been told and retold. It's about a man named Jesus of Nazareth--his birth, life, death, and resurrection. It's been dubbed "the greatest story ever told." Make no mistake, that story is important--very important. It's about a real historical human being--the historical Jesus--Who walked, breathed, and left huge footprints in the sand of history and in the lives of countless billions ever since. But that story is also 2,000-year-old history! He's not like that anymore! This book unveils and lays out what Jesus, the contemporary Christ, is like and doing today. It also challenges its reader, throughout, and concludes by asking--Which Jesus will be the Jesus you now follow?

The Book, the Greater Jesus, is a REFRESHING paradigm in the preterist stream of interpretation. Jesus is dynamic and always present and "coming" in and through His Kingdom. I believe it is among the books that fills the gap and answers the "so what?" and "what now?" questions many believers have regarding preterism in its various streams. I also appreciate that Dr. Noe is unapologetic with recognizing the power and Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Kingdom age. The preterist-idealist paradigm is a view that will gain momentum especially in Pentecostal-charismatic streams.
I am almost done reading The Greater Jesus. I could hardly put the book down! It brought much clarity and understanding to past fulfillment and ongoing relevancy. It is sound and challenging! WOW! I love the breakdown that Dr. Noe does with the resurrection passages and the meaning of "aer." I must re-read with pen and notebook in hand. This has helped me a lot!!!
Praise God! Dr. John Noe has revealed to all who read this a full and a most Awesome revelation of the true nature of our king - Jesus! The Church has erred, often subconsciously, by "limiting" our perception of, and how we think and teach about who Jesus was - the babe in the manger, the Nazarene, the Suffering Servant, the Resurrected One. As true and wonderful as each of these facets of Jesus Total, Multidimensional Reality are, they fall short of conveying - to those in the pews, our children and grandchildren, and the unsaved - Who Jesus Is - both now and forever (the same yesterday, today, and forever)! He is Savior, Lord, God, Creator, King, Judge, Prophet, Healer, the Way, the Truth and the Life. And yet by saying all of this, we have only "scratched the surface" of His Majesty!! However, in this beautiful work of love and worship, Dr. Noe has once again done the hard work of in-depth, thorough scholarly research. After reading this work, one comes away changed...
John Noe has presented first century understanding of difficult concepts including: Armageddon, the 'coming' of the Lord, time statements regarding the last days, and many more. Most Christians want Revelation to be about them and our time, thereby they miss the present purpose of the Kingdom of God. John presents the basis for worshiping the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords in Spirit and in Truth.
If your Jesus is still in the grave you would be told: "He Is Risen!" If your Jesus has not yet ascended you would be told: "He Is Risen and Ascended and Holy Spirit Abides Here in Us!" If your Jesus is gone and you are waiting for Him to come back, you need to be told: "He is here in the glory of His Father!" Do you know what "glory of His Father" meant to a first century Christian - John Noe can help you...
