Who this course is for:
This course is for anyone who wants get deeper into the things Jesus said about himself.

Description:
There was a high level of expectation that God was going to act to rescue Israel from enemies –this was “surely God would send His Messiah soon?”   Jesus reads the scroll and states “today in your hearing this prophecy is fulfilled” - they understood what he was saying and because they understood they did not accept it….was he talking about himself? Who? This carpenter’s son?

Also there were many times when the disciples simply did not understand what Jesus was talking about when he talked about himself –– Jesus could be very enigmatic at times. Jesus called himself “Son of Man” but the WAY he used it was confusing. And why didn’t he use the title Messiah or Christ? What DID Jesus mean when he talked about himself?

This four week course is a great preparation for Easter – it will expand our understanding of how Jesus saw his mission by looking in depth at the titles, how those who hear him interpreted or misinterpreted what Jesus was saying and how this led to the climax of his death and resurrection

Through each session we will get a good hold on what the titles Messiah, or Son of Man meant and then see how Jesus creatively blended other ideas in to proclaim the new era of the Kingdom.
