2020 Summer Online Classes Will Start in July.

Special Summer Course:  Yeshua (Jesus) and the Hebrew Covenants
– July 6th through August 31st, 7:00-9:00 PM

Course Description: This class will explore four covenants or relationships Adonai calls us into with Him.  It will also cover the Jewishness of Yeshua (Jesus) while He was on the earth and His teaching style.  Digging into the history and culture of the time Yeshua lived and ministered, we will show how He was like the rabbis of His day and how He was different.  What exactly did the Jewish religious leaders at that time object to in regard to Yeshua’s (Jesus’) teachings?  Why did they want to get rid of Him? Additional topics covered include the calling of disciples, what is expected of followers of Yeshua (Jesus), keeping Adonai’s commandments, and the role of the Holy Spirit.
