And the Word Became Flesh
The Gospel of John is unparalleled. There is no New Testament Gospel that provides in such simple language such a profound reflection on who Jesus is. These sessions will provide an opportunity to survey in a sustained and intense way this awe-inspiring witness to the Word made flesh.
