What if you started from scratch and examined who Jesus really is?
Let’s push past all the clichés.
We need to clear away all the baggage that comes with religion.
Whether you think he's a myth, a historical person, or the Son of God…chances are, there are things about Jesus that you don’t know. We’d like you to join us for our upcoming, church-wide campaign as we explore through a series of 6 weekly sermons and Bible studies, the person whose life completely changed the course of history—the Real Jesus
The Real Jesus
A campaign encompassing our weekend adult & youth services, specialized small group curriculum and relevant service opportunities. The weekly topics are:
Week 1: Feb 17/18 – The Historical Jesus
This week will focus on Jesus as a person, not a religion. For many Christians and for many non-church goers, seemingly good things—like Christian ethics or philosophy—have cluttered the true picture and have in some cases been a tragic barrier to the real Jesus.
Week 2: Feb 24/25 – The Teacher
As we look at the real Jesus of history, we’ll consider how the first people who encountered him saw him—as a teacher. Some teachers inspire, or anger. Good teachers change how a person thinks and this is a great posture to start in when we think about the real Jesus.
Week 3: Mar 3/4 – The Healer
During the third week we’ll look at the simplicity with which the real Jesus lived his life including how he healed people without formulas and pageantry. He came alongside the sick and ushered in the miraculous—and he still does to this day.
Week 4: Mar 10/11 – The Revolutionary
Jesus was not meek and mild like he’s often pictured. He is a counter-cultural change agent that altered his society’s views on who mattered and how leadership should work. This week we’ll see the real Jesus is a revolutionary and he revolutionized who gets access to God.
Week 5: Mar 17/18 – The Suffering Servant
With Jesus' influence and popularity, one would expect his goal would be president or a general. Instead, Jesus describes his ministry as one of service and sacrificial ransom. This begs us to consider a universally important question—who is this Jesus and what was his purpose in coming?
Week 6: Mar 24/25 – The King
In the United States, we have no real connection with the concept of a King. We imagine a person wearing a funny crown sitting on an oversized chair or an ancient figurehead with no real power. This week, we’ll explore exactly what kind of king Jesus is and why it matters.
