Educational Needs of the Church and this Seminar

To order the text by phone: (888)280-7715
Many church members do not continue their Bible study and education beyond early Sunday School years. It is time for some significant study and adult education to take place in the local church. This seminar will provide some amazing understanding of who Jesus really is. Participants will learn about the various scholarly "quests" for the historical Jesus over the years. It is also an understanding of this course that just as the Bible getting into the hands of the people in the Sixteenth Century had both a dramatic and even an explosive effect on the church, and on the world, so an understanding of who Jesus really is may indeed also have such a dramatic, explosive effect today on both the church and on the world.

This text book is about the historical Jesus, "humanity." A future course will be available on the Christ of Faith, "divinity." Both couses are designed to stimulate a strong adult education experience in the local church. Our particular local church is calling our adult education the "Free University" guiding our people to never stop learning. The courses are to stiumulate our minds!

Was Jesus of Nazareth a traveling Cynic-like sage, an itinerant rabbi, a Jewish holy man, a wisdom prophet, a Jewish peasant leader involved in a renewal movement? Who was he anyway?

Was he a revolutionary zealot, a reformer, a charismatic holy man, a wonderworking healer, a Galilean magician/shaman? Is it possible to uncover from the scant evidence who Jesus really was? Our text, "That Rabbi from Nazareth," is involved in the quests for the historical Jesus and makes some rather amazing conclusions.

With chapters like "Jesus as Punster," (the humor of Jesus), "Jesus as Prophet," (the subversive first century breaker of religious rules), and "Jesus as Party Animal," (the almost daily participation in Messianic banquets in the homes of peasants where there was eating and drinking (so much so that Jesus was accused of being a "winebibber and glutton"), all begin to interest the reader to continue his or her own personal quest through all fifty-two chaptes. Dare to expand your mind by reading this history book on the Rabbi from Nazareth.
