Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime journey through the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.

Taught by Rev. Donald Senior, one of the world’s leading New Testament experts, The Jesus of Scripture has touched the hearts and minds of the faithful around the world. Now, you too can experience this masterwork of erudite and faithful lectures. Brilliantly taught and bristling with inspirational insights, this life-changing program will deliver you to the heart of the Gospels.

No one’s life has made such a great impact, nor sparked such immense curiosity, as that of Jesus of Nazareth. In these 12 unparalleled lectures, you will explore the most authentic source for our understanding of Jesus: the four Gospels. As you encounter the Jesus of the Scriptures, you will come to understand the nature and history of the Gospels, as well as the fundamental dimensions of Jesus’ mission as portrayed by the evangelists. You will also explore how each Gospel author came to portray the Jesus who walked the hills of Judea and Galilee.

The portraits of Jesus found in the four Gospels and echoed in the rest of the New Testament writings remain powerful, beautiful, and compelling. They are a unique and riveting type of literature: biographies that were meant to inspire and transform.

The video version of this course contains carefully selected images, informative text, and engaging graphics.

Jesus came alive to me in this course.
Jesus came alive to me in this course. I love scripture and work in RCIA and I was able to play parts of this course for the Inquirers who think Catholics don't know scripture. Review by Elaine (Posted on 4/28/2016)
