Jesus' strategy for victory was countercultural. The Bible describes him as a conquering hero--but a hero who had to die first. In our world, conquering heroes achieve victory by force, not submission; with power, not weakness; with superior weapons and troops, not alone and empty-handed. Jesus conquered through weakness, submission and death. Jesus is the Supreme Conqueror, and in the pages of this guide by Bill Donahue, you can explore the results of Jesus' victory for yourself.
The Jesus 101 Series engages both mind and heart. The sessions bring a fresh perspective on who Jesus is, how he interacted with people in Scripture and how he relates to us. The discussion questions are designed particularly to help a group to learn from each other but also provide an interesting context for individual reflection. As you discover the ways Jesus fulfills our lives, you may fall in love with him again--or for the first time.
