A full understanding of the Gospels is not attainable without knowledge of the Jewish frame of reference. Therefore, this course provides detailed background information about first-century Jewish society, religious elements, rabbinic literature, and rabbinic theology. This course covers the period from Yeshua’s birth (the Incarnation) to the public proclamation of His Messiahship.
Using a harmonization of the four Gospels, we’ll study the life of Yeshua using a chronological-thematic approach.
This is the first course in a sequence of four courses examining the life of Yeshua the Messiah from a Messianic Jewish perspective
NOTE: This course was updated and expanded in 2023. It took several months to complete this project. Lord willing, we also plan on updating and expanding Yeshua Parts Two and Three in this Life of Yeshua series of coures in 2024-25.
