An Unforgettable Sermon
The crowds that ate the loaves and fish Jesus multiplied and fed to them have been searching for Jesus. And they find him in a synagogue in Capernaum. And while there, Jesus gives them an unforgettable teaching that leaves nearly everyone either confused or upset, such that nearly all of them decide to no longer follow Jesus. This week we will study what Jesus said and taught that led so many to turn away from him. We will learn that Jesus' message is indispensable if we would be saved.
