A Survey of the Life of Jesus (10-week, self-paced online course via BeADisciple.com)

What Using a host of media from studies in the Holy Lands (with Dr. Jim Fleming), Pastor Jim Reiter will take you on a tour of Israel — with an eye to the ways that considerations of 1st Century Middle Eastern customs/culture, geography, and a variety of sciences illuminate the life, ministry, and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.
