"Jesus, The Final Days" Tuesday Morning Small Group begins new study February 24 - meeting at the Peachtree Restaurant at 6am

Jesus The Final Days for WebThe Tuesday Morning Small Group is beginning a six-week Lenten season study based on a book by Craig Evans and N.T. Wright entitled Jesus, The Final Days (© 2009). The authors are concerned with three essential elements of the second article of the Apostles’ Creed: the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Evans and Wright make the argument that these are not merely theological ideas, but actual historical events that served to awaken faith in the lives of Jesus’ followers. The book draws upon a thorough analysis of the biblical witness along with extra-biblical sources and archeological evidence to make the case.

The first of the six sessions will begin Tuesday, Febraury 24, 2015. The group meets at 6:00am at the Peachtree Restaurant on Highway 99 in Hazel Dell. Facilitated by Pr. Peter, the study and conversation ends when the first group member has to leave for work, usually around 7:05am. Pr. Peter supplies a reading schedule (see below). There is always an open seat at the table for newcomers and guests. For more information, contact Pr. Peter at This email address is being protected from spambots.
