Sunday Morning 10/18: Unit 25, Session 3: Jesus’ Hard Teachings

Sunday Morning 10/11: Unit 25, Session 2: The Three Parables

In Luke 19, Jesus went after Zacchaeus, a chief tax collector. Zacchaeus was not well liked, but his interaction with Jesus led him to repent of his wrongdoing.

What does it meanContinue reading “Sunday Morning 10/11: Unit 25, Session 2: The Three Parables”
