Oils in the Life of Jesus Christ: April 2, 2021

Jesus Christ, who claimed to be the Messiah, was referred to as “the Anointed One”. Why was he given that title? How can we know if what he claimed is true?  Join me April 2, 2021 to investigate the claims of the one called “the Christ.” This could forever change your understanding of who Jesus really was.

Did you know that the Gospels tell us of how Jesus encouraged the use of essential oils? Can we learn from the ancient practices that used healing oils? Come rediscover how the Creator in His wisdom has provided for our health and wellbeing.

Why was Jesus gifted Frankincense and Myrrh at His birth? Why were essential oils used by Jesus and His disciples with prayer for healing?
