Seeing the Unseen

Posted on 11 Jun 2017, Speaker: Scott Nassau

The arrival of Jesus changed everything. It disrupted the world and introduced a renewed creation. Disruption introduces an occasion for renewal. The life of Jesus is a story about disruption and renewal. By confronting the systems and conventions that perpetuated oppression, injustice and brokenness, Jesus introduced a path toward wholeness and a renewed creation. Our learning series “Life Disrupted” examines the nature of Jesus’s message and why it remains as captivating today as it was two thousand years ago. This week we look at Luke 19 and Jesus’s famous interaction with Zacchaeus. Jesus disrupts his itinerary and transforms Zacchaeus’s life. Zacchaeus felt alienated and marginalized from the community. This is a story about how the willingness to see leads to a transformed life.
