Join Magrey deVega and James Howell as they look at the faith journey from the perspective of some of Jesus’ most meaningful questions from the Gospels and the way we choose to answer them.
The six questions explored in Questions Jesus Asked by Magrey deVega are simple, but they are not easy to answer. These questions, which include “Who do you say that I am?” and “Why are you anxious?” get right to the heart of what it means to be human. Our answers shift and evolve throughout our lives as we experience the joys and pains that life brings us. Jesus’ questions are always open, inviting us to dive in, wrestle, and become who we are intended to be.
In this webinar, you will:
- Learn how the answers to the questions Jesus asks will change throughout your life
- Be challenged to welcome doubt and uncertainty along the faith journey
- Discover new ways to deepen your awareness of God’s wisdom, power, and presence
- Be invited to engage and connect with the Christ who is always with you
Join Magrey and James for this meaningful discussion about the questions Jesus asked and how answering them teaches us who we are and who Christ is.
“Magrey deVega brings us on a journey from Jesus’s factual, interpretive, and illustrative questions to experiencing Jesus himself. deVega dives into the often-uncomfortable questions we sometimes wish Jesus had never asked in order to bring about our own spiritual growth.”
-Matt Rawle, author of Jesus Revealed and The Heart That Grew Three Sizes
