The teachings of Jesus Christ, as presented in the Bible, are familiar to millions, but do we really understand them? Keith Ward argues that, by scrutinising the Gospels through the lens of contemporary philosophy, we can discover a profound teaching that is not always apparent in traditional church teaching. Ward’s analysis of what Jesus really said uncovers four central themes: – that the Gospel is for everyone (but not necessarily everyone will be saved); – that the Second Coming will lead to a future in the spiritual realm, not a physical world; – that Jesus presents a moral ideal for life rather than a literal set of rules; – that God is expressed initially through the incarnation of Jesus, but ultimately through the whole of creation.
