In this series we’ll be looking at the cities and towns where Jesus lived, moved and taught. We’ll explore Jesus’ message within its original context, learning how the geography, culture, extra-biblical texts, political climate, and archaeological evidence helps us to better understand Jesus’ message and call.
In this six week series we’ll talk about the biblical perspective on encountering strangers. We’ll look at how people sometimes encountered angels and even God without immediately realizing it. Jesus tells us that the way we engage strangers and those in need is the way we encounter him. We’ll also talk about our identity and history as being strangers and sojourners as well as the importance of learning from the stranger.
