“The 307 Questions Jesus Asked and the 3 He Answered”
The first words that Jesus speaks in
the gospels come in the form of a question. Jesus is addressed in the gospels as “Rabbi” because, among other things, he is a teacher. And a good rabbi knows how to ask questions. This class will take a look at the many questions Jesus asked and the few that he answered. The word “question” contains the word “quest.” By lingering with and pondering the questions Jesus asked, we will set out on a quest, a journey, in search of something of great value. Paul will teach the class and lead the discussion.
