Background to Jesus' Early Ministry

191A Background to Jesus' Early Ministry

To fully appreciate and understand the teachings of the Lord Jesus, the Bible student must have an appreciation for the world in which Jesus lived.  This course will concentrate on the birth of the Lord Jesus as well as the early ministry of Jesus in Galilee.  Special attention will be given to the background of His early parables, sayings, and discourses, especially the Sermon on the Mount.  The cities of Galilee and the fishing industry will be targeted and illustrated with PowerPoint.
