The Spring Feasts & the Family: Exploring the Patterns and Principles of Discipleship in the Biblical Festivals
Come join James Whitman and your friends at JC Studies in a unique exploration of the patterns and principles of discipleship found in the Spring feasts.
Imagine if we could ask Joseph and Mary, the parents of Jesus, why the Lord their God gave regular, annual festivals to them, His covenant people? Using the tools of language and culture we have exciting insights into how they would have responded. If you have a desire to enrich your knowledge of the Bible and deepen your commitment to Jesus as King, you won't want to miss this discipleship weekend.
The purpose of this special weekend seminar is to help followers of Jesus better understand what they read in sacred Scripture. How? By studying the great salvation themes associated with the Spring Feasts, how the early church found them fulfilled in Jesus Christ and what they still have to teach us today!
If you have a desire to enrich your knowledge of the Bible and deepen your commitment to Jesus as King, you won't want to miss this discipleship weekend. There is no financial cost to you for this priceless class. But you do have to come as a student, ready and willing to do some serious study and application.
