Most of us read the Bible completely wrong. When in the Bible we encounter men and women who did amazing deeds for God and His people, we see them as “heroes.” Moses, David, Ruth, and Esther are among some of the favorite heroes in this category.

The problem with this, however, is that we miss the point of their individual stories as it relates to the larger gospel narrative. If you examine their lives, sure, they each have commendable moments, but at the end of the day, each of these individuals were unable to deal with the main problem constantly lurking in the background: humanity’s conscious and unconscious decision to rebel against God through their thoughts and deeds.

By comparing ourselves to these “heroes,” we set ourselves up for failure by seeing our own lives as “worse” or “better” than these people who were no different from you and me.


Suddenly, out of nowhere, the unlikeliest Hero that you’d expect arrives on the scene. He is born in near poverty and obscurity. He holds no degrees, commands no armies, and yet single-handedly defeats that main problem plaguing humanity. All without resorting to coercion, intimidation or violence.

Rather than reactive, He is proactive in the way He upends the conventional establishments of His day. His life and death literally split history in two and continue to impact people to this day.

This month, we want to introduce you to the real Hero of the world: JESUS.

Wednesday nights at 8 EDT

THE GOSPEL STORY

Live Chats on YouTube and FB Live

UPCOMING SERIES & EVENTS

Season Two of the Gospel Story every Wednesday night at 8 EDT,

This season, we will be following the experience of the central figure in the New Testament, Jesus of Nazareth. However, rather than simply telling the story, this season will reflect on the universal human themes that are at the backdrop of each chapter. By exploring some of the key moments and experiences that took place before, during, and after his remarkable time on earth, we will explore why Jesus’ life is the Gospel Story.

First, meet us at the UPPERZOOM for prayer at 7:30 pm. Email communications@miamitemple.org for Zoom link.

Elder Wilny Audain will continue the conversation, this time on STRESS MANAGEMENT.

LET'S TAKE THIS JOURNEY TOGETHER
