SUNDAY NIGHT BIBLE SERIES
JESUS – Lord or Legend?
Jesus of Nazareth is the most written about person in the world. He is also one of the most debated figures in the world. In this eight-part series, Dr. Maier explores a three-lane highway to the past through the disciplines of Archaeology, History, and Geography. Along the journey, we look back to the world that Jesus himself saw as he moved toward the cross. The tentative schedule for this series is as follows.
