Our guest joins us today to give us a portrait of Jesus found in the earliest historical sources. What we will discover is not a tidy monolithic Jesus, but a complex, multi-layered and, at times, contradictory figure. Jesus cannot fit into a box. He is destined to stretch out imaginations, confront our beliefs, and challenge our lifestyle for years to come. Join us to learn how to introduce the Man from Nazareth to believers and skeptics.
Join us today to learn how to share Jesus' love with those who've experienced the pain of sexual brokenness! Our guest will place our sexuality in the broader context of God's heart and work for us on earth; offers a framework for seeing the whole picture instead of focusing on one problem; and provides practical steps to implementing sexual discipleship.
