There have been many signifcant events that have marked time. The signing of the Declaration of Independence, the Battle at Pearl Harbor, the first step on the moon, and September 11, 2001 are all etched into the minds of Americans. These dates represent not just dates but also the character of our nation. As significant as these dates may be within the context of American history, they are secondary compared to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. That one event and the week leading up to it mark all of history for eternity. Those seven days serve as the foundation for both the character and substance of Christianity.
In these days of tolerance, it appears that the distinctive traits of the Christian faith are being lost or at least blurred. In some settings, the focus is on the teachings of Jesus rather than His sacrificial redemption. Jesus is more than a great teacher or worthy example. First and foremost, He is Savior. The purpose of this study is to call people back to the cross and the events leading up to His resurrection.
Guest speaker Joe Thomas brings 30-plus years of ministry experience to help you apply the truths he will share in this study. Joe was a youth pastor for 7 years. He spent 13 years travelling extensively, speaking and preaching in churches, revivals, and prisons across the country. He spent 10 years as an associate pastor developing and leading adult Bible study. And for the past 2 years, Joe has served as the Dean of Students at Criswell Bible College in Dallas, training and discipling Christian leaders, most of whom are going into vocational ministry. Whatever stage of life you're in, you will be blessed by attending these three days of investigative study.
