The Jesus Creed Summary

The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others by Scot McKnight

When an expert in the law of Moses asked Jesus for the greatest commandment, Jesus responded with the Shema, the ancient Jewish creed that commands Israel to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength. But the next part of Jesus' answer would change the course of history. Jesus amended the Shema, giving his followers a new creed for life: to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, but also to love others as themselves.

This is what Scot McKnight calls the 'Jesus Creed'. He has written this book for all Christians who want to find out how it can transform their lives - and the lives of those around them.

The Jesus Creed Reviews

"'This book is a rare treat. A biblical scholar of the first rank offers the fruit of his own personal study, life experience, and prayerful reflections. It is clearly written, eminently practical, and based on a wide range of sage traditions (Protestant, Catholic and Jewish).' Scott Hahn. Professor of Scripture and Theology, Franciscan University of Steubenville 'Spiritual formation is being discussed by Christians everywhere. Finally, someone asks what it meant to Jesus. The Jesus Creed explains it for everyone.' Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor, Willow Creek Community Church 'Scot McKnight gives a compelling invitation to intentional spiritual growth, and presents a clear path to follow. The Jesus Creed is both informational and formational. It will lead individuals and groups into a deeper understanding of the heart of Jesus and the meaning of spiritual formation.' Doreen L. Olson, Executive Minister, Evangelical Covenant Church 'In a world of pop spirituality and quick fix, self-help guides, Scot McKnight's The Jesus Creed offers stimulating research and genuine insight into what the Gospels actually say about Jesus' call to spiritual growth.' George H. Guthrie, Benjamin Perry Professor of Bible, Union University"
