City Bible Forum is running two short series of Bible talks from February to April 2019
1st Series: Feb 12/13 - Mar 5/6 What would Jesus say to you?
2nd Series: Mar 12/13 - Apr 2/3 He said what? - The Parables of Jesus
Have you noticed that people like stories? More specifically, we like stories that are surprising. More often than not, it is the shocking, confronting and gritty stories that become fan favourites. They push the envelope and leave us thinking 'I can't believe that is what happened!'
Jesus often taught using stories. They were stories people found surprising. They made people ask: "He said what?" Even today Jesus' stories are not just thought provoking, they are shocking, confronting and scandalous. Join us us at Bible Shots as we consider several of the stories Jesus told and what they say to us today.
Our speaker for this series is Peter Jensen. Peter has taught about Jesus all over the world to people from all walks of life. Peter is a former Archbishop of the Anglican diocese of Sydney, principal of Moore Theological College and delights in teaching people about Jesus.
The organisers of Bible Shots think that the Bible has something important to say to us, so we set aside time during the week to think seriously about what is written there.
You don’t need to hold to any particular belief system to attend or have any prior experience with the Bible, all you need is a willingness to consider what the Bible says.
Our first quarter for 2019 will have two smaller series.
