Bakhita Bible Study Returns in October:
Jesus the Word Made Flesh: Gospel of John Chapters 1-10
More than we realize most Christians these days look at Jesus Christ through the lens of John’s Gospel, which is a long and deep meditative account of Jesus ministry and vision of his identity.
This first part of John’s gospel presents Jesus as the personal revelation of the unseen God and develops selected words and deeds of Jesus into several great dramas to demonstrate the power and love of God working in him. This study will help you understand the scope of this monumental and unique gospel as well as its personal implications for the lives of disciples today.
Join us for a deep dive into these great dramas that reveal so much about our faith!!!
In light of the evolving COVID pandemic this series will be held “online only” with six sessions starting on Wednesday October 13 at 7:00 PM.
Please watch this space for critical details regarding participation and book ordering.
Hope to “see” you in October!!!!
