Jesus at the Movies: Week 1

To those of you who missed the first session of “Jesus at the Movies” this evening at lovely Christ Church United Methodist: where were you? 😉 Fortunately, however, the technological marvel that is Google Docs allows me to post the thoroughly captivating PowerPoint presentation (an introduction to the study of the historical Jesus, which will serve as a comparative framework for the evaluation of aspects of various films) here, so as to offset your inevitable feelings of emptiness, loss, etc. Alternatively, simply click on the slide below. Enjoy… and we hope to see you next week!
