Jesus: His Family, Friends & Followers

Jacob Elias

Sept. 19, 21, 26, 28; 10:00-11:30 am

Jennings Auditorium, Greencroft Goshen Community Center

When he was informed that members of his family were looking for him, Jesus said to those around him, “Whoever does the will of God is my brother, and sister, and mother.” We will explore how Jesus related to his own family and his followers, including his mother Mary, Peter, Mary Magdalene, and “the beloved disciple.” We will also consider how James the Lord’s brother, the disciple Peter, and Paul the apostle got along with each other after Jesus’ death and resurrection. Elias is Professor Emeritus of New Testament at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, where he taught Biblical Survey and courses on Paul’s letters.
