Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church
February 22 - April 26, 2015
This series focuses on the humanity of Jesus. To be clear, Jesus is fully God and fully human. But, the days leading up to Easter are one time when we see so clearly the humanity of Jesus. The theme verse for the next six weeks comes from Hebrews 4:14-16, which reads:
Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession. For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
In this series, we consider passages that describe Jesus as the high priest who does sympathize with our weaknesses and temptations, but who doesn’t sin.
