The season of Lent begins today and this morning we’ll revisit a conversation we had a few weeks ago with Asherita Ciuciu. Asherita will share the history behind Lent as well as some of the ways that we can observe these days heading toward Good Friday and Easter with intentionality and joy as we lean into what Christ has accomplished for us and the love He has given us to share with others.
What’s it like to walk where Jesus walked and be in the place where He gave His life for us? As we begin the 40 day journey to Easter, Dr. Jim Coakley joins us to take us on a radio tour of the Holy Land, stopping at points along the journey that brings context to what we read in the Gospels about the ministry of Jesus and His journey to the cross.
Dr. Jim Coakley has taught for sixteen years as professor of Bible at Moody Theological Seminary specializing in Old Testament and Biblical Languages. Prior to Moody he was involved in pastoral ministry for thirteen years. He has traveled to Israel multiple times as a tour leader and has also toured throughout Turkey. Jim is married to Gayle and they have two grown children and two grandchildren. He was a contributor to the Moody Bible Commentary and is working on a second doctoral degree through the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa.
