|This 6-sermon resource packet by pastor/biblical scholar, Rev. Eric Elnes, Ph.D., is focussed on how Christians may "claim fully the path of Jesus without denying the legitimacy of other paths God may create for humanity" (Phoenix Affirmation 1). The series specifically and sensitively addresses Jesus' statement in John 14:6 that "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." The series helps people understand the historical and literary context of this statement, and a number of translational and interpretive possibilities that suggest that the most common interpretation (that Christianity is the only way) is the least likely one that Jesus would affirm. Also available (at additional cost) is a complete small group video resource produced by Darkwood Brew which is available in DVD and internet streaming formats (https://darkwoodbrew.org/product/faith-of-jesus-series-guided-episodes/).
Sermons include: (1) The Way, the Truth, and the Life; (2) The 'Most High God'; (3) The Lord Alone?; (4) The Good Shepherd; (5) From the Areopagus to Aerospace; (6) In All things: Christ, Our Passover
