Next week, we will launch Putting Jesus’ Values to Work: Red-Letter Christianity 2 with Larry Stoess For Individuals and For Groups. If you’re interested in analyzing Jesus’ work and ideas with a strict focus on what he says about them in the gospels, both this class and our other Red-Letter Christianity class (Jesus’ Values: Red-Letter Christianity 1 with Larry Stoess, available in both For Individuals and For Groups formats) are for you.
Part 1 of our two Red-Letter Christianity classes, launched last week, looks at Jesus’ words to determine what values were most important to him. Part 2 will talk about how he wanted his followers to enact these values in the world, in their communities. It talks about how Jesus’ values influenced his vision for the Kingdom of God on earth, and how that vision motivated his mission.
Larry Stoess is an author, community activist, and church planter. The main question he answers in this course is: having determined what Jesus’ values were, what did he want his followers to do with them?
This course will work best if you take Part 1 first, but you can take it as a stand-alone class since Larry does briefly recap his sense of what Jesus’ values were at the beginning of the course. For a course preview, please click below.
