simplyJESUS – Adult Class Wed.Night
Join us on Wednesday Nights as we begin our New Adult Class Series – simplyJESUS
In this series you will begin to understand the story of Jesus of Nazareth, not as a ‘religious figure’, but as a person who lived, taught, worked, and carried out his mission within a 1st Century A.D. historical context.
Explain the role of Jesus within his context and understand the difficulties and resistance to who he was and to what he said.
Understand some of the key biblical texts which speak of the life, teachings, and work of Jesus within the literary and cultural setting of his day
Discern the various political and philosophical movements that provided the backdrop for the actions of Jesus and which provide further meaning to Jesus’ life story.
Embrace an understanding of the Jesus of history and not simply the traditions which emerged centuries after his death.
