Now Watching Thomas

Close encounters

Not everyone who was close to Christ became Christ followers. Some of the people who rejected him had followed him, witnessed his miracles, ate with him and/or interviewed him. Others who followed him and later denied or doubted him ended up as champions for the gospel. How could people get so close to Jesus and still reject him? How could Jesus accept followers who failed to be loyal when put under stress? During this four week series we will examine what went wrong and what went right in the spiritual lives of Judas, Peter, Pilate and Thomas.
