Who Is This Man? The Identity & Message of Jesus and Why It Matters

Posted on

We use many words to describe Jesus: Savior, Lord, Messiah, and others. But do we know what those really mean? To us, they may be polite, worshipful titles, but in Jesus’ day, they were dangerous and subversive. This lesson explores who Jesus was and what he did in the context of the first century. What does it mean to call Jesus "Lord" with Caesar looking over your shoulder? Why did the Jewish leaders want to kill Jesus, and why did the Romans agree to carry it out? Why is the resurrection such a big deal? This lesson series aims to deepen your understanding of and devotion to Jesus. This class will start next Sunday in the Chapel.
