WELCOME TO WILLERUP CHURCH
We are glad you're here...come on in!
There can be a disconnect for Christians between the Jesus of scripture and the Jesus of theology. For many of us in the Church, we have focused on the long-held beliefs taught to us from denominational resources or popular Christian authorities. We have read books and participated in Bible studies which included Christian topics such as scriptural integrity, theology, doctrine, and Christian living from Christian leaders or pastors.
What if we discovered something new?
Consider the fact that Jesus grew up in a Jewish household with Jewish parents living within a devout Jewish culture. Imagine Jesus living within an extended family who were all Jewish. Most of the early apostles or disciples of Jesus were Jewish. Jesus even remarked that he came to save the lost sheep of Israel. (Matthew 15:24) Very Jewish! So how did the primitive or early church understand their role of disciple making and worship? In addition, how do we discern today what Jesus commanded his followers to fulfill as his great commission years ago: to make disciples of all nations?
Let’s investigate and learn more about the context of the first century. Perhaps we will discover something new as we delve into the Jewishness of Jesus for the next series. We begin January 8, 2023.
“The church changes the world not by making converts but by making disciples." John Wesley
