Upcoming Bible Studies

 

Followers of Jesus

Five Bible studies for Lent will be looking a little more closely at the stories of some of the characters in the gospels who encountered and followed Jesus, for some all the way to the cross.  We look at Nicodemus, perhaps a secret disciple who was there with fragrant herbs when Jesus was buried in the tomb; Mary and Martha who were friends, followers and offered  hospitality to Jesus; the Samaritan woman at the well, to whom Jesus confessed that he was the Messiah; the disciple James, who saw the transfiguration and still didn’t understand; and finally Mary Magdalene, one of the women standing nearby when Jesus was crucified.  These people have much to teach us about our own relationship with Jesus.
