Lent Course - Meekness and Majesty

Our Lent Course this year is called:

Meekness and Majesty

The humanity of the Servant King

This study course, Meekness and Majesty, takes us through the week leading up to the crucifixion, looking at the amazing paradox of Christ the Servant - Christ the King. It looks also at the teachings that would have fed Jesus’ mind as he was growing up, the historical context out of which the messianic longings grew and how God’s chosen Messiah was contrary to the Jewish longing for an all- conquering earthly king.

Through six study sessions we will follow the path Jesus took that last week- from seeing the crowds adulating Him as He entered Jerusalem, to Jesus washing His disciples’ feet, His betrayal, Peter’s denial of Him, to His walk along the streets carrying His own cross – and to His crucifixion. Look again at your concept of Jesus and be encouraged to return to the Bible to deepen your faith and understanding of God’s purposes.

Our Lent Course will be held on Wednesday mornings at 10.30am and repeated again Wednesday evening at 6.30pm. Please join us when you can.

March 6th       Hosanna!   John 12: 12 - 19

March 13th     Washing the Disciples’ Feet    John 13: 1-9; 12 - 15

March 20th     Betrayal   Matthew 26: 14 – 16, 47 - 50

April 3rd        The Way of Sorrows    Mark 15: 13 – 21
