The Problem of Jesus Study Guide
Look beyond the superficial understandings of Jesus to reexamine his powerful claims, teachings, and the events surrounding his life.
The modern world portrays Jesus in many ways for many reasons. But in order to see and understand the real Jesus and what the Gospels say about him, we have to take a closer look and be willing to accept him on his own controversial and challenging terms.
In this nine-session study (DVD/streaming video sold separately), Mark Clark will guide you and your group through some of the essential aspects of the person and work of the historical Jesus of Nazareth, including:
- His parables and miracles.
- The historical and biblical accounts of him.
- His death and resurrection.
- His claim to be God.
Based on the commentary and reflections of his book, The Problem of Jesus, Mark Clark helps us come to a truer understanding of Jesus and the often-unexamined cost of following him.
This video-based study is designed to be experienced in a group setting or any small gathering. Throughout the nine sessions, you'll take part in a number of activities, including:
- Watching the video teachings from Mark (The Problem of Jesus, A Video Study, sold separately).
- Group discussion questions.
- Written responses and personal reflections.
- Scripture readings and prayers.
The Problem of Jesus Study Guide provides a safe space to wrestle with and strengthen your faith—and ultimately to deepen your discipleship to the Redeemer.
