Dr. Kenneth Collins (professor of Historical Theology and Wesley Studies) at Asbury Theological Seminary takes us on a deep dive into his newest book: Jesus the Stranger: The Man from Galilee and the Light of the World (Seedbed, 2021). We have a powerful and compelling conversation about the Jesus of Scripture in contrast to the various "Jesus's" in secular culture and even in the Church. Ken especially emphasizes the innocent suffering of Jesus.
