What Jesus Demands from the World by John Piper with Brian Tabb | The Gospel Coalition

What Jesus Demands from the World

The four Gospels are filled with demands like "be born again," "love your God," and "lay up treasures." Far from harsh demands originating from a selfish desire to control, Jesus' words are more a clarion call of urgency—loving directions for our good. In fact, what Jesus demands from the world can be summed up as, "Trust and treasure me above all."

What Jesus Demands from the World Bible Study Kit includes a small-group Bible Study Book and one DVD with a promotional video and six 10-minute teaching sessions featuring author John Piper with Brian Tabb. 

A thoughtful examination of Jesus' demands reveals a compelling yet personal portrait of Jesus Christ in the Scriptures. The four Gospels are filled with demands like “be born again,” “love your God,” and “lay up treasures.” Far from harsh demands originating from a selfish desire to control, Jesus' words are more a clarion call of urgency—loving directions for our good and ultimate satisfaction. In fact, what Jesus demands from the world can be summed up as, “Trust and treasure me above all.” This is good news!
