“What impressed me most were the cultural events and mannerisms explained during Jesus’ ministry. I liked that Barry highlighted some of the customs during Jesus’ time. I also learned that Jesus came not just to save us but to reveal the Father as a template on how we are to have a relationship with the Father and to love others.”
“I have always been confused about how Jesus could be a true man but have God’s powers. This lesson cleared that up for me. Jesus operated in His earthly ministry by being led by the Holy Spirit and accomplished everything He was sent to do by keeping in close connection to His Father by constant prayer. He is our example to do the same.”
“As I proceeded through the course, I began to feel closer to God, like a barrier was lowered.”
