7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Monday, October 18, 7:00-9:00pm, in the Main Worship Space

Presented by Dr. Art Zannoni

Dr. Art Zannoni presents Encountering the Compassionate God of the Bible. The Bible reveals both a compassionate God and Jesus as the compassion of God. This program will explore the biblical roots of compassion in both the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) and the Gospels. The presentation will be divide into two parts. The first part will explore the importance and meaning of the Hebrew and Greek terms for compassion, followed by examples of how God acts compassionately throughout the Hebrew Scriptures, especially in the books of Exodus, the Psalms, and the book of Isaiah. In the second part, emphasis will be placed on Jesus, who is presented in the Gospels as God's compassion. Examples will be given of Jesus acting compassionately toward crowds, toward men and women, at meals, and in the parables that he tells. The presentation will conclude with a challenge to all faithful followers of Jesus to act compassionately toward everyone they encounter.
