Be Provoked by the Church’s Men’s Group!

Sunday February 9th and 23rd at 8:45am, we will be discussing Reza Aslan’s book “Zealot: The Life and Time of Jesus of Nazareth.” The author’s goal is to provocatively differentiate the Biblical Jesus from the historical Jesus. In doing so, he calls into question many of the New Testament assertions about Jesus in light of the Roman history of the first century C.E. in Palestine. Among other topics Aslan explores why the early church preferred to promulgate an image of Jesus as a peaceful spiritual teacher rather than a politically conscious revolutionary. The book can be purchased from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Join us in the Fellowship Room for coffee as we discuss his challenge to some of our traditional ideas about Jesus. If you have any questions, contact Hank Whipple at 249-7773 or hwhipple7854@att.net.
