How to Experience God's Blessing (21 of 33)
Series: Behold the Lamb
Ernest L. Easley
Now as we continue our study of John's gospel under the theme: BEHOLD THE LAMB... join me in chapter 13! Now with the public ministry of Jesus complete and the shadow of the cross looming over Him... Jesus gathers with His disciples into the Upper Room to share the Passover meal.
