Where could a study of love begin but with Jesus—love personified? Person of Jesus, a five-part small group study, slowly introduces a Jesus so personal, so rich in love, that we are captivated heart-first. Paul Miller’s winsome insights—conveyed through an energetic, interactive format—lead people to discover Jesus’ beauty for themselves. In Unit One, Compassion, we watch Jesus interact with people to discover the three steps of love: to look, feel compassion, and act. In watching Jesus, we find our eyes opened to a rich encounter with God’s love and our hearts empowered to love others.

"Our hold on the four stories of the person of Jesus has been weak. We don't have a good handle on who our Lord is: how he treats people, how he feels, how he reacts to people, how he times his interactions. Paul Miller's study sits at the feet of Jesus and looks at how he lives and speaks."
