"Folks Like Us"

Too often, the Bible seems like it’s full of either folks we’d never want to be, or folks we never could be. No one names their son Judas or their daughter Jezebel. Even fewer parents name their son Jesus or even Gideon. Yet the Bible tells us that Elijah was a “man just like us.” Fran takes us through a study of 17 people in the Bible who were “folks just like us.” We’ll examine Job, Adam, Eve, Paul, Jezebel and twelve others whose lives we should emulate or avoid.  (back to index)
