Background to Jesus' Later Ministry

191B Background to Jesus' Later 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 later ministry of Jesus in Judea, Perea, Samaria, and Jerusalem.  PowerPoint will illustrate the geography of these areas in order to bring more understanding to Jesus’ later parables, sermons, and discourses.  The events of the Last Week in Jerusalem as well as the archaeology of the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus will be discussed.
