Sometimes to understand who Jesus is, you need to look at who Jesus affected 2000 years ago.
Peter was one of Jesus’ Apostles, and knowing and working with Jesus, changed his life, and he changed the lives of others through his work in the beginning of the Christian Church.
Join us for 4 weeks as Paul Barnett takes us through a journey through Peter’s life, and understand his sermons and letters in the Bible.
