Teachings of Jesus

Program Description

At no other time in history has it been so essential to understand and practice the teachings of Jesus that he showed us more than 2000 years ago. Our efforts to establish peace over these many years have failed.  Wars and fighting will not bring peace.  Only the practice of Jesus’s teachings from the hearts and minds of individuals will bring peace and love to the world.  Our mission ,then, with this program is to return to ancient days when Jesus walked the earth as a man and teacher and take a closer look at what his mission was and what he taught. Through the understanding of his teachings ,  we will learn how to put them into  practice now and together we can make a difference in this world.   

The program will consist of  three (3)  six week courses and a final  sharing and discussion session which will be scheduled as needed.  One course will be scheduled each term.

Students will register and pay for each course individually.  When the written assignments are turned in you will be considered part of the program and credits will be attributed.
