Jesus is the central figure of human history. He has been written about, in all categories of literature, more than any other individual. More songs, more histories, more poems, more periodicals, more annals, more prose, have spoken of Him in either positive or negative tones.
This 8-week study will focus on what Jesus said and did that captivates our minds. We will gain a deeper understanding of Jesus teachings on the Kingdom of God and its ethics for the citizens of that kingdom. Discussions will also focus on its application for today.
1.0 CEUs are available upon successful completion of this course.
