Quizzing Jesus: Life’s Big Questions


Have you ever noticed how Jesus interacts with people in the Gospels? Not just the words, but the manner, the style? How He meets people where they are, intuits their deep questions, and gives them big answers that they may not even realize they are asking for? For our new sermon series in March, we are borrowing from the book by Timothy Keller, Encounters with Jesus – Answers to Life’s Biggest Questions. We will explore a different encounter each week, as Jesus is quizzed by others, and the way He responds with profound and helpful answers.
