Posted by Journey of Faith on

Who is this man Jesus? He challenged people’s comfort, did outrageously miraculous things, taught really radical ideas, and took risks when other people wanted to play it safe. He’s wild! Between now and Easter we are going to take a look at this wild revolutionary and ask...
