Uncovering the Life of Jesus, by Rebecca Manley Pippert, is a Bible study that shows six encounters with Jesus, like the prodigal son, Zacchaeus, and the blind man.
Each chapter has questions, historical context, page for notes, Bible verses (NIV), and a section about how that chapter was relevant to us today.
This study is taken from the book of Luke

My thoughts- I thought Rebecca Manley Pippert’s book, Uncovering the Life of Jesus, had a lot of great information and thoughtful questions.
While I enjoyed all the parts of this book. I liked having the historical context of the six different encounters. It was helpful for me to know what people would have thought when the prodigal son returned or what the Jews thought about the tax collectors. I liked having the specific Bible verses in the book. I was glad she used the NIV Bible, because it is a version that is easier to understand.
I thought the questions she asked were thought provoking. I thought it was great that she had her comments to this book on the internet.
I would recommend this study for people who want to learn about Jesus. It would be perfect for a small group study.
