Wednesday nights during Lent
6:00 PM in Fellowship Hall
March 8, 15, 22, 29 and April 5
Join us on Wednesday nights during Lent, in Fellowship Hall, as Pastor Jim leads a Bible study based on the book The Questions of Jesus: Challenging Ourselves to Discover Life’s Great Answers.
Each week we will study several of Jesus’ questions grouped under a particular theme, reflecting on its context, its meaning for Jesus, and its meaning for us today. It is not necessary to read the book or to be a biblical scholar to participate – the only necessities are a curious mind and an open heart. Sitting with the questions of Jesus may lead us to a renewed interest in the Scriptures and the story of Jesus. But even more, it may lead the way to a deeper understanding of the meaning of our lives and our relationship with God.
The Gospels are filled with stories, actions, parables, miracles, commandments, declarations, imperatives, and incidents from the dramatic life of Jesus. But they are also filled with the questions Jesus asked: 307 questions, as a matter of fact. Jesus has a question for everyone he meets, for every occasion, for every experience. Most of Jesus’ questions were never answered. Indeed, most of them have been deliberately ignored. Two thousand years after Jesus first appeared, these questions still await our answers.
