Knowing Jesus

Moving beyond academics into intimacy

by NRJohnson

NOTE: this book is currently being updated and expanded. So while this older edition is still available, do know the new version is expected to be released fall 2024.

“If you’ve ever heard me give the Ginōskō message on intimately knowing Jesus, this is a written version of that message.”

– NRJohnson, author

Get to know Jesus intimately

Have you ever felt dry, depleted, or desperate for something more in your Christian life?
Too often our relationship with Jesus consists of little more than attending a church service on Sundays, memorizing Bible stories, and spending fifteen minutes each morning in prayer and reading. We say we know Jesus, but we also realize that we lack intimacy and closeness with Him.
The key to Christianity is not to know all about Jesus, but to actually know Him. Knowing Jesus is more about relationship than rhetoric and more about intimacy than information. It’s about surrender, abiding, and dependency upon the King of kings and Lord of lords.
In this devotional study of a passage from Philippians 3, NRJohnson encourages you to move beyond academics and into intimacy—to embrace Jesus Christ in relationship, not mere head knowledge.
