'Meals with Jesus'

Further to my post suggesting alternatives to the summer evening services at our church, I have just received details of a new course from Focus Radio entitled 'Meals with Jesus'.

The meals Jesus eats with different people play a vital role in the unfolding story in Luke's gospel. They're important because of who he eats with - often the social misfits, the outcasts, and the religiously unacceptable members of society. Jesus' meals are also important because they point forward to the future great feast in God's kingdom.

This new course from Focus Radio explores the meals people have with jesus in Luke;s gospel and how they affect us today -

In Levi's home (Luke 5. 27-32)
In Simon's home (Luke 7.36-50)
In Mary and Martha's home (Luke 10.38-42)
In a pharisee's home (Luke 11.37-53)
In another pharisee's home (Luke 14.1-24)
In Zacchaeus' home (Luke 19.1-10)
In a home in Jerusalem (Luke 22.7-38In a home in Emmaus (Luke 24.13-35)

Each session includes -
Discussion starters
A passage from Luke's Gospel to study
Real life applications
Something to do after the session
Ideas to help you go deeper.

'Meals with Jesus' is available free of charge as a digital download from www.facingthechallenge.org/meals.php but you will need to register with their website.
