Christ as Present Teacher: Learning to Love

This study – in its focus on the words of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels – challenges us to note how Jesus’ teachings repeat, emphasize, and build on Old Testament themes while addressing the real-world concerns of his audience. Consider how members of the early church understood Jesus’ words, seeking to more faithfully live in harmony with the Holy Spirit whom we trust has always been at work, remains at work, and will always be at work in the church and in us. Jesus’ words were for the people of his day. But they are also for us. Right where we are. Today.
