8/3/14 - Book review for BookLook Bloggers The Jesus Code by O.S. Hawkins

52 Scripture questions every believer should answer.  The Jesus Code provides a whole year of personal devotion, small group study, couple(s) ministry and questions we should answer.  Out of hundreds of questions in the Bible O.S. Hawkins chooses 52 for this book (one for every week of the year).  They all were thought provoking with questions from both the Old Testament and New Testament.

He begins with the serpent putting doubt in Eve’s mind by asking “Has God indeed said?” from week one.  We see in week nine Solomon about to be crowned as King asking God to give him wisdom.  Week 15 we get the question “Will we live again?” and the answer an emphatic “Yes!”.  All through the pages are questions, answers and scriptures.   We learn about the virtuous wife, resentment, tithing, worry, fear, neighbors and how Jesus fed thousands with a few loaves of bread and a couple fish.  Peter boasted that he would never betray Jesus however, he did so three times.  Then the risen Jesus posed a question to him and to us, “Do you love Me more than these?”.  O.S. Hawkins finalizes the book with the way of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

You will be probed and prodded when reading this book.  I would recommend this to anyone that may be questioning their faith, their existence or their way.  This is a tool to use in any devotional or Bible study.
