Bible 10: The Gospels and Acts: Jesus Christ Up Close and Personal
On this exciting venture, the class presents our LORD as a Holy God who desires a personal relationship with them as Lord and Savior. We will examine the life of Jesus: To see His brilliance, to know His compassion, to thrill at His courage and power, to weep over His death, and to rejoice in His resurrection. The student will learn about the customs, geography, and dates of Jesus’ time. They will be “put” in Israel with Jesus during the years A.D. 29-32, explore the seasons of the year, the time of day, and even the weather to help relive those exciting days when Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, walked the earth and ministered to the people in Israel.
To many people Christ is merely a historical fact, rather than a living, personal reality. We know that Christ lived, and we know much about what He did; however, even we, as Christians, seldom experience His presence as we should. One purpose of The Life of Christ from the Gospels is to make Jesus Christ real to our students. Our hope for our students is that will not only know Jesus more, but also love Him more.
This class will focus on a study of the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) and John as well as a study of the book of Acts, where we will examine the beginning and growth of the early church, including the life of the apostle Paul. Throughout this course, students will study the Deity and humanity of Christ, the way of salvation, proofs of the resurrection and archaeological evidence which affirms the historicity of Scripture.
In all of our Bible courses, students will be encouraged to develop the discipline of regular communication with God and studying the Bible on their own in order to know God and to live to His glory. Students will acquire Bible study skills which will give them the ability to answer questions and learn Bible principles on their own.
