Jesus’s Baptism

Mar 5th, 2019 by Annali Topf | Comments Off on Jesus’s Baptism

John the Baptist preached a radical message of repentance from sin, John lived in the desert far from the sacred caverns of the Temple, and father still from the rituals and staunch practices that most Jews would have abided by in his day. And yet, this is the very man Jesus seeks to begin his […]

We have a group of five congregants participating in a church membership and baptism class! This picture is from our most recent gathering where we discussed the early church. Can you guess which scene they are acting out?
