All Roads Lead To Jesus

This past Sunday, during the penultimate sermon in our series on Esther, I showed how all roads in the Bible lead to Jesus. From Genesis to Revelation, Jesus is the story. I have been asked by a bunch of people if I could post a summary of those notes. I have many pastors and theologians to thank for helping me summarize what we all know is true. All doors, all roads, and all journeys lead to King Jesus.

My plan is to turn this summary into a 66 day Bible Study. So stay tuned for that if this is something you might be interested in studying. Here it is...
