Talk Series Beginning June 25th
Join us as we journey through the Gospels to both learn from and watch how Jesus navigates the different rooms, groups, and situations He experiences. Jesus, bar none, is the greatest person in any room, group, or situation. Jesus simultaneously is the greatest person and the lowest person in the room. He is the King and the Servant. He is the Lion and the Lamb. Jesus is extraordinarily kind, intentionally gracious, and unequivocal in His truth. It would behoove us to keenly and acutely watch how Jesus handles His greatness and position.
"He was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman.
He grew up in another village, where He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty.
Then for three years, He was an itinerant preacher.
He never wrote a book.
He never held an office.
He never had a family or a home.
He didn't go to college.
He never visited a big city.
He never traveled two hundred miles from the place where He was born.
He did none of the things that usually accompany greatness.
He had no credentials but Himself.
He was only thirty-three when the tide of public opinion turned against Him.
His friends ran away.
One of them denied Him.
He was turned over to His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial.
He was nailed to a cross between two thieves.
While He was dying, His executioners gambled for His garments, the only property He had on earth. When He was dead, He was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.
Nineteen centuries have come and gone, and today He is the central figure of the human race.
All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all the parliaments that ever sat, all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man on this earth as much as that One Solitary Life."
