THE CHALLENGE OF JESUS

In “The Challenge of Jesus” by John Dominic Crossan, we learn the story of life in first century Palestine under Roman rule. Crossan’s deep knowledge and wit bring the time of Jesus to life, and give us a context for who he was, what he did, and how his followers became the early Christians.  Facilitated by Steve Compton.
