Rediscovering Jesus
Who was Jesus?

There have been no shortage of opinions offered, books written, responses given to this question. Some worshiped Him as God. Others thought Him a criminal. Controversy followed Him throughout His life, and has continued 2,000 years after His death.

A few decades after the events of Jesus’ life on earth, a man named Luke wrote a detailed account for a friend–rediscovering Jesus. He asked questions of eyewitnesses, he listened to Jesus’ enemies, and worked hard to give an account of just who Jesus really was.

Luke was convinced Jesus had good news for us. Life changing news. Rest for the anxious. Healing for the broken. Freedom for the trapped. He wrote about Jesus, so that we could rediscover Jesus too.

03 Vainglory | Humility

Vices and Virtues - Shawnee Mission Campus

Luke 1:26-56

From Series: "Vices and Virtues - Shawnee Mission Campus"

What steals joy, impedes spiritual growth, ruins relationships, brings entire civilizations down, and can be found in each of us? The answer is vice — sinful habits of mind and body that characterize life without God. In church history, descriptions of the allure and danger of vice abound. This includes the attempt to list the most central vices — the seven deadly sins. In Scripture, too, the vices are taken seriously, warned against, and condemned as deceitful and destructive. But how do we escape from these vices? We find in the writings of both ancient and modern philosophers, in church history down through the centuries, and, most importantly, throughout the entirety of Scripture, that we escape vice by growing in virtue - healthy habits of mind and body that characterize life with God. Join us for Vices and Virtues as we walk through the Scriptures to consider how to escape the dangerous allure of the vices and how to grow in the divine vibrancy of the virtues.
