HOW TO USE DAYS WITH JESUS
This project is designed to help you understand the life and times of Jesus. To join the journey:
1. Buy the book or ebook Days With Jesus Pt. 1 and read the chapter for the day.
2. Read the passage in the Gospel of John in the Bible that corresponds to the Day in the book.
3. Interact with the Study Questions at the end of each chapter by yourself or in a group.
4. Many Days in the book have on-location videos from Israel that accompany them. Come to this website and watch them here or on DVD through our store.
5. Everyday there is a new verse and devotional to contemplate here at Daily DWJ.
HOW WE STARTED
Days With Jesus was birthed as a concept in 2007 when Jim Jackson, who had just planted a church, began to teach on the life of Jesus. It was then he realized that many people, including those who had grown up in a church, had heard of Jesus and a little of what he had done, but most did not know about Jesus and who he was. In reality, though billions of people around the world claimed to follow his teachings, it seemed as though an understanding of the man and his mission was still severely lacking.
Jim's teaching about Jesus turned out to be so popular people suggested he turn it into a book. So Jim started to write the book Days With Jesus which turned into a two-part set. Not long after work on the book began, he had the idea to actually go to Israel and shoot on-location videos in the places where Jesus walked and talked. The videos would then coincide with various Days in the book and could be viewed online, at home or at church, individually or in a small group. This way, a person could read about Jesus, then watch the video from the spot where that particular event took place to give them a more well-rounded understanding of Jesus and his life.
So, he flew with a camera and sound crew to Israel and shot video non-stop, day and night, travelling up and down the landscape of Israel. What would result was a ground-breaking combination of book and nearly 30 on-location videos. Over the following year, the book, videos, and the website became a labor of love for many people who desired Jesus to be understood correctly and loved greatly.
The Days With Jesus project is designed for personal enrichment, a small group study, or a church-wide campaign. Regardless of how it is used however, we hope it blesses you and those who will join the DWJ adventure in the future.
WHO WE ARE
The Days With Jesus project now spans around the globe and is dedicated to exploring the true life of Jesus through historical investigation, theological reflection and relational connection. On this website you will find people from all walks of life who have not become followers of Jesus because they needed religion, but became Christians because they found God.
So whether you are a follower of Jesus, looking into what Jesus was about, or don't know where you stand with God or Christianity, welcome! Spend some time here and get to know about Jesus and his life--where he was born, how he ministered to people, how he died and then was resurrected. But most importantly, how he still ministers to people today--like you and us.
