Many Christians in the workforce, over 120 million Americans, desire to know Jesus more deeply and expand our faith lives. Our vision of Jesus has been skewed by the dogma and polity of our religious institutions, the fringe element of religious thoughts, and a decline in the institutional church. Jesus has become less relatable, and the forces of our contemporary society have hidden Jesus away in a dark closet. Jesus & Co. is a non-dogmatic and disruptive voice that retells the purpose and story of Jesus.
Jesus & Co. uses the exact words spoken by Jesus and compelling historical evidence to bring Jesus alive in a very different way. He becomes accessible and real, by connecting His words and the ancient Judean marketplace with inspiring people from the 21st century.
Jesus & Co. is a journey through time and the lives of Jesus and marvelous Christians.
