Jesus the Stranger with Dr. Ken Collins
October 28, 2021
Bob and Stephanie chat with Dr. Ken Collins, Professor of Historical Theology and Wesley Studies at Asbury Seminary, on his new book Jesus the Stranger: The Man from Galilee and the Light of the World. It's a unique look at the life of Jesus through the lens of "otherness" and suffering and offers some real hope and instruction for those who follow Jesus, especially in times when they are seen as "strangers" to the rest of the world.
