lenten bible study with Father Asa

Challenging Sayings of Christ

Wednesdays at 10AM and 7PM

“Go and Sell Everything You Own”  Matthew 19:21

“Hate Your Father and Mother”  Luke 14:26

“You Must Become a Slave to All”  Mark 10:44

 

These are a few of the most difficult and often misunderstood words Jesus said to disciples. Over the Season of Lent we will explore together these verses and a few others in their Gospel context - asking what did these scripture mean for their earliest hearers and how they are still true for us as disciples today.
