The Questions Jesus Answered 

 In our worship this summer, we have focused on the questions Jesus asks us.  According to Martin Copenhaver in his book Jesus is the Question, Jesus asks 307 questions in the Gospels, and is asked 183 questions.  (Who counts these things?)  Jesus usually responds to a question with another question or with a story.  He gives a direct answer to only 8 questions. 

For the next two Sundays, August 23 and August 30, we will explore these 8 questions and the answers Jesus gives.  Join us in worship at 8:15 or 10:35 to discover what his answers reveal about what is important to Jesus.
