Subtitle: A penetrating look into the person and work of Jesus Christ
When Old Testament prophets foretold the coming of the Messiah, they referred to Jesus as the root and branch of David. Building on these terms, Dr. Joseph Pipa explores the riches of Christ’s person and work.
This book is about Jesus Christ the Son of God and our Savior. Its purpose is to enable each one of us to know the Savior better that we may more fully enjoy the grace and comfort of the gospel and be equipped to serve the Lord in holiness.
We are reminded that Jesus has secured our salvation and continues in intercession before the Father for his people. And, it all will culminate one day in his glorious return!
