Current Sermon Series: In the Wilderness | Jesus in the Book of Numbers

A journey that should have taken a few weeks ends up taking 40 years: what is wrong with this picture?  This is the story of the Big Detour, Numbers: The Travel-Log of the Wilderness Wanderings.  In this oft-neglected book, we meet some fascinating characters and themes that will be referenced and developed throughout the Bible.  we learn about a stubborn, self-destructive inwardness (Augustine: “Incurvatus in se”) in people and how the God of grace opposed this bent and liberated His people …first from Pharaoh …then …from themselves.  Join us on this journey every Sunday at 8:30 or 11 AM.
