Sacrifice in the Bible & Christian Life | November 6 - December 18, 2019
Taught by Fr Jeremy
Sacrifice is central to the message of the Bible. Today we rarely speak of it, since it carries such intensely negative connotations. Yet sacrifice shouldn't be scary to us! In ancient times, it was a precious and meaningful gift, welcoming God into the lives of His people.
We will take a fresh look at the sacrifices of the Old Testament and their fulfillment in Christ. We will then consider how Christ's sacrifice bears fruit in us today, in the offerings we make to God.
