The Life of Jesus Week 2

Episode 162 | The Life of Jesus | Released January 9, 2023 | Special guest: Afshin Ziafat

For the second week of The Life of Jesus reading plan, Raechel and Amanda welcome pastor Afshin Ziafat to the podcast. While reading story after story from Jesus’s Galilean ministry, Raechel, Amanda, and Afshin remind us of the visible faith we are called to as we follow Jesus—a calling guaranteed to come with a cost. Listen in and join the She Reads Truth community this week in considering what we are willing to leave behind in our pursuit of Christ.
