We all share a fascination for discovering ‘the rest of the story.' We enjoy learning the behind-the-scenes facts about seemingly familiar events.

Bird team up to take you on a tour of the story behind the explosive story of the New Testament.
You will discover things you never knew about Jesus' baptism and journey into the wilderness, the meaning behind his parables and miracles, the significance of his death and resurrection, the incredible expansion of the early church into the Greco-Roman world, and how the transforming mission of Jesus can still turn the world upside down today.

So, come join the journey with N.T. Wright and Michael Bird and they will help you understand the New Testament you never knew.
