People Who Met Jesus
When people meet Jesus exciting things happen. Whatever their backgrounds and circumstances--military officer, widow, religious leader, prostitute--each person Jesus meets is known, challenged, and (sometimes) transformed.
Rebecca Manley Pippert creates a safe place to explore, on your own or with a group, what might happen as you meet Jesus. In this discussion guide you'll take a closer look at both Luke's and John's narratives and you'll have the opportunity to consider more deeply your individual response to Jesus.
Each study is packed with historical information, challenging questions and thought-provoking quotes, but it won't answer all your questions. In fact it may bring up new ones! But, no matter what, it will help get you started on your journey toward faith.
