The Life of Jesus

Beeson Divinity School Chapel Series
Spring 2023


Our fall chapel series focused on the life of David, one of the most important forerunners and types of the Lord in the pages of the Bible. This spring, we will focus on the one to whom the kingship and line of David led, Jesus of Nazareth, the long-awaited Messiah, as portrayed in the Gospel according to Matthew.

We will start in Bethlehem, where both men were born, and conclude in Jerusalem, David’s royal city where our Lord died to take away the sins of the world. In between, we will study Jesus’ brief life and ministry, asking what it means to abide in him (John 15), be conformed to his image (Romans 8:29) and walk in his way (I John 2:6).

Our prayer is that this series will increase our love for Jesus, improve our understanding of his life and ministry and inspire us to deny ourselves, take up our crosses every day and follow him (Matthew 16:24).

All services take place at 11 a.m. in Andrew Gerow Hodges Chapel.

Guests are welcome to participate in-person or virtually at beesondivinity.com/live or YouTube.com/BeesonDivinity.
