In Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis argued that Jesus was either a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord. Seekers who listen closely, though, will hear Jesus’ own words revealing which of these is true.
Who did Jesus say He is?
This brand-new Advent course will look at seven ‘I Am’ statements of Jesus that are found in the Gospel of John. Over four weeks it will dig into what those statements meant to the original hearers, then will reflect on what they say to each believer today as hearts are prepared for Christmas.
Led by BeADisciple director Lisa Buffum, the flow of the course will be weekly rather than daily. It will include a Scripture passage, a written or video lecture or website exploration, and twice-weekly online interaction on the discussion board. No group meetings will add flexibility of schedule.
This course is eligible 1.0 CEUs.
