“My Lord and My God”: A Scriptural Journey with the Followers of Jesus
A Scriptural Journey with the Followers of Jesus
This series came from a Bible Study Series called My Lord and My God! A Scriptual Journey with the Followers of Jesus, written by Jeanne Kuhn and published by The Word Among Us Press, and used as our commentary. We chose six of the ten people she highlighted in her lovely book: Simon Peter, The Centurion of Capernaum, The Woman with the Hemorrhage, Judas, Mary Magdalene, and Thomas. In looking at the lives of these followers of Jesus, the question we should ask ourselves, as Soren Kierkegaard said, is this: “Are you a follower of Jesus, or just an admirer? Christ used the term ‘followers.’ He never asked for admirers, or worshippers, or adherents. No. He calls people to follow him. What then is the difference between an admirer and a follower?” This will be the question we will address as we study the life and times of each of those mentioned above. How would you answer the question? Are you a follower or just a fan of Jesus?
