The Teachings of Jesus: A Textbook for College and Individual Use

Excerpt

This book is an expansion of my small volume, The Message of Jesus. It had its origin in a number of requests for a textbook along the lines of that book but planned for college use. Accordingly, I have not hesitated to include certain chapters from that book, though the reader will find that these have been reworked and corrected.

Considerable attention has been given to the supplementary readings at the end of each chapter. It will be noted that these deal for the most part with topics related to but not adequately discussed in the preceding chapters. By utilizing these readings the instructor can expand the course as much as may be desired. No doubt many of the most useful of these have been overlooked, but each instructor will supply the omissions.

In quoting New Testament passages I have followed, as a general rule, the American Revised Version. I am grateful to Messrs. Thomas Nelson and Sons for permission to use this translation.
