Jesus’ final days were full of risk. Every move he made was filled with anticipation, danger, and the potential for great loss or great reward. Jesus risked his reputation when he entered Jerusalem in a victory parade. He risked his life when he dared to teach in the Temple. His followers risked everything when they left behind their homes or anointed him with costly perfume. We take risks as we read and re-read these stories, finding new meanings and new challenges. In Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week, author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story. She shows us how the text raises ethical and spiritual questions for the reader, and how we all face risk in our Christian experience. The books are available in the office, and the cost is $12.
The Men’s Bible Study, lead by Pastor Ray Tear, meets in the Hunt UMC Fellowship Hall every Tuesday morning at 7:30 am. The Study is composed of men from HUMC, as well as men from other local denominations, that hunger and thirst for a better understanding of God’s Word. They are united in their fellowship, with the concept from Proverbs 27 that proclaims, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
Come gather around the table for some sharp discussions and good friendship.
