We are officially half way through the year. How crazy is that. 😛
This week Amanda hosted us.
Today we read the story about Joseph, Mary, and Baby Jesus fleeing to Egypt because Herod ordered all babies under two killed.
Not the most lovely story… 🙁
We are now done with studying Mark and switching over to a more topical sermon for a bit.
Simeon is using a book to base his sermons off of. The book is called “Jesus Creed” by Scot McKnight. (Goodreads)
We talked about…
- What the word ‘creed’ means
- Some religious habits of the Jews that Jesus would have practiced
- The similarities and differences between the Lord’s Prayer and the Kaddish
- We read over Mark 12:28-34 and talked about how to understand the “greatest command”
