ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
The New Testament You Never Knew
Sundays @ 11:30AM in the Sanctuary
Sept. 12 – Nov. 14
Do you know the real story behind the New Testament?
We all share a fascination for discovering ‘the rest of the story.’ We enjoy learning the behind-the-scenes facts about seemingly familiar events. In The New Testament You Never Knew, well-known Bible scholars N.T. Wright and Michael F. Bird team up to take us on a tour of the story behind the story of the New Testament.
Together we’ll learn about…
–The political upheaval of the day that made the nature of Jesus’ coming so unexpected
–The underlying meanings behind Jesus’ parables and miracles
–The Kingdom of God and why everything about it was so shocking
–The resurrection and why, despite repeated predictions, no one saw it coming
–The mission of the church and how it is more complex than we realize
–The transforming power of Jesus and how it can still turn the world upside down today
Join us as we seek to understand more about the New Testament and why N.T. Wright calls it “one of the most explosive books ever written.”
