Tricky New Testament Passages

Tricky New Testament Passages

Very often it is the Old Testament that is seen as containing all of the parts of the Bible that are most difficult for Christians. However there are a number of passages within the New Testament that are equally problematic. Often our response can simply be to ignore such passages. However when we hold our nerve and seek to grapple with their meaning a great deal of value will often follow – even if it is usually extremely challenging! During July we will seek to do this across all of our three services at Christ Church looking at a number of the trickiest passages contained within the New Testament and trying to understand the challenge that they are bringing us both as a church and in our daily lives.
