Community Night: The Judas We Never Knew
January 11, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Jude (a.k.a. Judas) and the biblical letter that bears his name have been sidelined for centuries. But his personal history teaches us about the complicated relationship between faith and family and between Judaism and Christianity. His letter’s teachings about Jesus, spirituality, sexuality, community, and the afterlife have plenty of contemporary relevance. This book and video study explores all these topics and more in a fast-paced conversational style. THE JUDAS WE NEVER KNEW EXPLORES:
- Jude’s role as Jesus’s half-sibling
- Why the book of Jude is so important for the church today
- What we stand to lose as believers if Jude is overlooked
- Jude’s teachings on salvation
