The Faith Of Jesus: The Lord's Prayer
The Lord's Prayer
Prayer offers a window into a person’s beliefs and core values. Jesus was no different. The Gospels describe Jesus as praying often, but only provide a few examples of his prayers. So what did Jesus believe; what were his core values? Join us as we explore the faith of Jesus through the prayer he taught his disciples, the Lord’s Prayer. Each phrase offers entry into the world and thought of Jesus. By studying his prayer within its cultural and spiritual context, we gain greater insight into the faith of Jesus and see how it can transform our faith
