Why can the Christian faith look so different from one person to another person? An observer of an individual Christian might see the introspection of a priest, or the zeal of a prophet, or the studious sanctity of a Pharisee, or any number of additional presentations. The answer to why faith has so many faces often comes down to personality, and the way each specific person demonstrates their faith.
In this course you will explore various passages of Scripture. This 10-day session will look at writings in Genesis, Leviticus, and Ezekiel, as well as the Gospels and Hebrews. Examining how faith is seen in these passages will lead you to conclude that faith isn’t only about beliefs, it is about individual personalities and the way persons interact with others. Journey with us to see how the P-People of the Bible can reveal how you demonstrate faith in your own life.
This course is eligible for 1.0 CEUs.
