This is the second of two courses covering the Messianic Jewish Epistles. These short, but very important epistles are rarely, if ever, taught from a Messianic Jewish perspective, yet the authors of these epistles and the original recipients of these epistles were Jewish believers in Yeshua (Jesus). In addition to teaching these books of the Bible from a Messianic Jewish perspective, we will provide a verse-by-verse exposition that will fully cover the important doctrinal and theological truths each contains.
