Jesus' impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life; it is inescapable because of the range of impact; it is unknown because history doesn't connect dots; and it is doubled-edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc, often in his name. He is history's most familiar figure, yet he is the man no one knows. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental. From the Dark Ages to Post-Modernity he is the Man who won't go away. And yet... you can miss him in historical lists for many reasons, maybe the most obvious being the way he lived his life. He did not loudly and demonstrably defend his movement in the spirit of a rising political or military leader. He did not lay out a case that history would judge his brand of belief superior in all future books. His life and teaching simply drew people to follow him. He made history by starting in a humble place, in a spirit of love and acceptance, and allowing each person space to respond. His vision of life continues to haunt and challenge humanity. His influence has swept over history bringing inspiration to what has happened in art, science, government, medicine, and education; he has taught humans about dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope.… (més)

I love John Ortberg’s writing, and this book has not changed my mind at all about his writing or his teaching. In Ortberg’s new book, Who Is This Man? There were some awesome historical contexts around many of Jesus' stories told in the gospels as well as how radical Jesus' ideas were within those political and social contexts. I always thought I knew my bible but after reading Ortberg’s writing of Who Is This Man? I know in my heart and soul that in fact Jesus was human just like we are and He did make His own mistakes, but ended up paying the ultimate price.

“We often do not live in the way of Jesus. It is strange how our heroes have changed.” (Chapter 6)

“You and I are not morally superior to members of the ancient world. We are no better because we live later. But we live in a world that has changed in this regard. We live in a world where the lowliest of the low are seen differently than they were two thousand years ago.” (Chapter 6)

This book is one you will want to keep in your library to read again and for a great reference book. I highly recommend this book to anyone, Christians, and non-Christians alike, you will love to read the historical context, and it is amazing. ( )

It is amazing how we have forgotten or we are just so blind that we do not see how Jesus has made and continues to make such an impact on this world.He is the only one through history that the whole world revolves around, even when it tries so hard to deny him.

John Ortberg is one my favorite Christian authors. He did not disappoint with this one. Jesus.....he is unpredictable and inescapable. I love how John portrays Him in this book. ( )

De impact van Jezus op de wereld gaat veel en veel verder dan je zou vermoeden. John Ortberg doet met het gelijknamige boek (vertaling van Who Is This Man?: The Unpredictable Impact of the Inescapable Jesus) een poging vanuit uiteenlopende invalshoeken de invloed op tijdrekening, kunst, slavernij, koninkrijken, waardigheid en mensenlevens te ontdekken. Waar Frank Viola met zijn theografie Jesus vanuit de Bijbel in de geschiedenis en godsopenbaring telkens weer bij Jezus Christus uitkomt, trekt Ortberg de cirkels nog wijder. Wat betekende Jezus Christus boottocht over het meer van Galilea naar 'de overkant'? Was het kruisteken, dat voor keizer Constantijn zo belangrijk was nu een geloofsbelijdenis of een Romeins amulet? Welke opties had Jezus in de hof van Gethsemané eigenlijk? En hoe zou soldaat Malchus weer zijn thuisgekomen? Waarom bleven er 12 en 7 manden met eten over bij de wonderen met brood en vissen? Wat was zo revolutionair van Jezus' koninkrijk vergeleken met het Romeinse Rijk? Bedenk de impact van Jezus Christus op de ontwikkeling van de Engelse taal, het alfabetiseren van volken, uitvindingen en ontdekkingsreizen, sociale voorzieningen, enz. enz. Gelovig of niet, om Jezus kun je niet heen.
Kort stipt Ortberg het plan van Jezus om ons van de boom van het leven in het paradijs (Genesis) naar dezelfde boom in het nieuwe Jeruzalem (Openbaringen) te leiden met de inzichten die ook Joshua Ryan Butler onlangs in The Skeletons in God's Closet: The Mercy of Hell, the Surprise of Judgment, the Hope of Holy War heeft uitgewerkt met een terloopse referentie aan Rob Bell. Jezus' leven is geen abstract onderwerp dat alleen door experts onderzocht kan worden. Het is een uitnodiging. Stel wat Jezus heeft gezegd maar op de proef. ( )

John Ortberg does a wonderful job of analyzing Jesus Christ's historical impact upon government, women's rights, slavery, equality, art, architecture, place names, proper names, calendars, and the meaning of history. ( )

Jesus' impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life; it is inescapable because of the range of impact; it is unknown because history doesn't connect dots; and it is doubled-edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc, often in his name. He is history's most familiar figure, yet he is the man no one knows. His impact on the world is immense and non-accidental. From the Dark Ages to Post-Modernity he is the Man who won't go away. And yet... you can miss him in historical lists for many reasons, maybe the most obvious being the way he lived his life.

He did not lay out a case that history would judge his brand of belief superior in all future books. His life and teaching simply drew people to follow him.

His influence has swept over history bringing inspiration to what has happened in art, science, government, medicine, and education; he has taught humans about dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope.
