Simply Christianity is a five week course that explores the basics of Christianity.
Do you have questions about who Jesus is and who Christians believe Him to be? Or do you have friends who might be interested in doing something like this?
The five sessions will look something like:
1. Jesus, Now and Then
An introductory session clarifying that Christianity is really about responding to Jesus Christ (rather than being just about ethics or ritual), and that we can find out about Jesus reliably by reading the Gospel record of his life.
2. In the Presence of Greatness (Luke 1-9)
We often think of Jesus as meek and mild, but in Luke 1-9 we see his awesome power and authority to speak on God's behalf, to overcome evil, to heal and forgive and call people to follow him. He is, in other words, the Christ-God's mighty worldwide ruler.
3. Search and Rescue (Luke 10-19)
It turns out that this mighty Messiah has not come to conquer with his power, but to seek out the lost and save them.
4. Jesus' Death (Luke 20-23)
As Jesus "drinks the cup" of God's judgement on the cross, his rescue mission reaches a climax. Through his death, access to God is opened up.
5. Jesus, Here and Now (Luke 24)
This concluding session emphasises Jesus' resurrection as the Christ, who now rules the world, and calls on people everywhere to repent and seek forgiveness.
