If you only ever pick the Jesus that makes you seem right, you miss out on who Jesus really is for you. So if I want to excuse sin or avoid confrontation I might paint Jesus as always merciful and gentle. If I want to attack someone else I might justify my actions by pointing to an aggressive Jesus who confronts sin. The true Jesus is both merciful and confrontational, both harsh and gentle, and unless I have both views, I miss out on the Real Jesus.

Each week will deal with two seemingly opposite dynamics and show how we need to hold the seeming paradox in tension or lose who Jesus really is.
