Encounters with Jesus - Overview
Some years ago I met Prince Charles. Our conversation must have lasted less than two minutes, and yet decades later I can still remember some details. My encounter with royalty was memorable, but your encounter with the highest royal, Jesus Christ, can be life-changing. May Jesus himself transform your life.
Jesus was often among crowds but he also spent time with many individuals. In this selection, I have chosen seven personal encounters Jesus had with a whole range of people: children, women, men, parents, teachers, leaders.
He challenged, inspired and met the deepest needs of people who were busy, people who were ill, people who were rich, and people whose lives were messed up.
I invite you to meet Jesus today as you read, and respond to, these encounters with Jesus.
The readings come from Word Come Alive, a new translation (paraphrase) of the New Testament by Bible editor Martin Manser. Text in italics shows the explanations I have added to the original text.
