Second Topic – A Prayer to Our Father: The Hebrew Origins of the Lord’s Prayer
We take an exciting journey of faith with a Jewish Bible scholar and an African American pastor who joined forces to uncover the truth about the most beloved prayer in the Christian world. Their gripping adventure begins in the ancient city of Jerusalem and takes them to the very spot in Galilee where Jesus taught the multitudes to pray. Along the way they discover a Hebrew version of the Lord's Prayer, preserved in secret by Jewish rabbis for over a thousand years. The richness of meaning that the Hebrew unlocks reveals a powerful message of spiritual growth for Jew and Christian alike. Join us for this exploration of the Hebrew origins of the Lord's Prayer! Pastor Keith Johnson is our guide.
