Life With Jesus
Everyone has an opinion on Jesus. And often our opinions are based on poor or little information.
Who do you think Jesus is? Who does he claim to be? What does it even matter?
You may have never looked at his life, or maybe you could do with a refresher.
Either way you’re very welcome to join us for one of our Life of Jesus courses. Each evening for six weeks we meet at someone’s home to watch a video and answer your questions. You won’t be asked to read out loud or pray.
To register your interest in attending the next course just fill out the form on the right and we’ll make contact with you.
More on The Life of Jesus course
What really happened back in the first century, in Jerusalem and around the lake of Galilee, that changed the shape of world history? Sydney-based ancient historian John Dickson takes us on a journey through the most significant parts of Jesus’ life. Shot on location in Israel, the Life of Jesus introduces us to what is known of Jesus’ birth, his teaching, his deeds, and his crucifixion and reported resurrection from the dead.
Week 1 – God’s Signpost – scrutinizes the Christian claim that God has revealed himself in a tangible way in Jesus of Nazareth.
Week 2 – Christos – explores Jewish expectations of the Messiah (or Christ) and whether or not Jesus met those hopes.
Week 3 – Kingdom Come – examines Jesus’ key message and the extraordinary claims about his ‘miracles’.
Week 4 – Judge and Friend – addresses Jesus’ scandalous practice of befriending those typified as ‘sinners under God’s judgment’.
Week 5 – Cross Examination – looks at the political causes of Jesus’ crucifixion, and the meaning that Jesus and the early Christians attached to it.
Week 6 – The Resurrection – assesses why the resurrection story is still taken seriously by historians and how that story changed the world.
