Uncover Bible Study

Uncover is an encounter with the eyewitness narrative about the life and purpose of Jesus Christ.

  • Who was Jesus really?
  • Why has he influenced history so greatly?
  • What was so revolutionary about his teachings?

Don’t just trust second-hand information. Examine the evidence and see for yourself! We will read and discuss six accounts on Jesus’ life from the Gospel of John. The study group is for both Christians and non-Christians. You are warmly welcome to join us!

We will gather at 17.30 on the following Mondays: 23.-30.1. and 13.2.-6.3.

The place: OPKO's office, Ylioppilastalo B, 2nd floor, Rehtorinpellonkatu 4 B. The entrance is between houses A and B. (There's renovation going on in the courtyard but don't let it confuse you, just go behind the fence.) Take elevator to the 2nd floor, then door B114 on the left and then door B1 on the right. There's "OPKO" signs to guide your way.
