3 - The Pharisee & The Tax Collector

Series: Kingdom Stories



April 24, 2023 | The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Bailes

    We live in an age of contempt, and we're not the first society to feel such for those around us. Contempt was a common attitude in Jesus' own day, and in Luke 18, he tells a story that directly addresses this attitude. In this session, we'll explore what this story has to teach us about the gospel and our own feelings of self-righteous superiority.
