Text and Context Session 11: Jesus and the Sabbath
Author: Desi Maxwell
Product code: MP541
Desi looks at the subject of rest encompassed in the term 'Sabbath' as applied to the weekly day, Sabbatical Years and the Jubilee Year. All point to the promise of a rest to come, but included are a place to live, a peace to enjoy, and a person to trust.
