Join us for a great weekend of teaching with Ray Vander Laan, one of the most passionate teachers and historians of the Judaic people, land and culture.
Jesus' Last Days:
Journey to the Cross: Understanding the Jerusalem of Jesus’ Day and the Path to Jesus’ Death and Resurrection.
Ray Vander Laan will lead us on a journey with Jesus during his last days of ministry before his death. An exploration of Jewish culture, the Hebrew Bible, Imperial Rome and its control of Jerusalem, and the expectations of Jesus’ disciples will help us understand the power of Jesus' teaching and the events that led to His death and resurrection. This exploration will deepen our understanding of the suffering and sacrifice of Jesus, and God’s call to all believers to live as followers of Christ who seek to bring shalom, restored relationships, harmony, and human flourishing into our broken world. You will not look at these events the same again.
Participants should prepare for the weekend by studying these passages: Matthew 20-28, Mark 8:11-16, Luke 17-24, John 11 -21
Friday, March 24 - 7-9 p.m. and Saturday, March 25 - 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Ray will also be joining us for a teaching at Providence CRC during the Sunday morning sermon. All are welcome to join us for that!
