Jesus creates unlikely friendships. He was the reason these men were enemies. And then He became the reason they were friends. We examine the relationships between Paul, Barnabas, and John Mark to see what we learn about Christian friendship, especially what it is capable of enduring.
As part of our series of examining how each Bible book points us to Jesus, we look at the overall message of Song of Solomon and its connections to God’s redemptive work through Jesus, even redemption of marital love and intimacy.
