This 4-week course looks closely at biblical terms which have a direct relationship with Christian Science and its Discoverer, Founder, and Leader – Mary Baker Eddy. We will ask: Can this kind of research enhance our own understanding of Christian Science and our sharing it with others? We will also discuss how this type of study can help us handle the misconceptions surrounding Christian Science which claim that our religion is not biblically based.
Our goal with this 3-week course is to encourage a deeper appreciation for the concept of the Tabernacle. The course is structured so that the lectures will go deeply into historical context around the Tabernacle. These are intended to not only expand and illuminate the historical background, but to provide deeper and inspiring highlights as well.
This 3-week online eCourse will discuss the topic of “Discipleship” – what it is according to Jesus’ statements as recorded in the Gospels, what our purpose and mission are if we claim to be a disciple, and how we can fulfill that mission. We will look at the known facts surrounding the 12 disciples; then we will focus on what it means to have the mind of Christ (see Phil. 2:5). We will discover, to use Harry Emerson Fosdick’s words, “Christianity is not simply a message to be heard; it is a deed to be done” (The Meaning of Service, p. 15).
This 7-week online eCourse will discuss ‘God as our great Physician.’ Mary Baker Eddy once asked, “What is the best way to bring about instantaneous healing?” In our sessions, we will search for an answer to this question through a study of biblical accounts of healing, illustrated in the life of Christ Jesus. We will learn what the Gospels reveal as Jesus’ methodology of healing, and we will glean what made Jesus such a successful spiritual healer. We will also discuss how Mrs. Eddy’s healing work, and the demonstrations of pioneer workers in the Christian Science movement, prove that Jesus’ healing methodology can be practiced today with the same success – all the while knowing that God is our “great Physician” (Miscellaneous Writings 151:13-14).
This 6-week eCourse (Part 1) is structured around the first eleven chapters of The Gospel of John. These recordings are intended to not only expand and illuminate the historical background, but also provide deeper and inspiring highlights as well.
This 5-week e-Course picks up from the end of the “Gospel of John – Part 1” eCourse, and continues the story of Jesus and the Passion Week, plus the resurrection appearances in Jerusalem and Galilee. We will cover the Gospel of John, Chapters 12-21.
This 8-week course takes you through the entire Gospel of Mark in 8 sections. The lectures are accompanied by visual slides to highlight some of the significant historical information.
In this 5-week eCourse, we will see why the quality of grace is so important for a follower of Christ Jesus, and how expressing this quality changes our lives, and thus helps to transform the world. Looking closely at the theme of grace in the Scriptures, we will gain a deeper understanding of its meaning not only for first-century Christians but for us today. How often do we read those comforting words in the Bible – “Grace be unto you”? The phrase is found many times in Paul’s epistles as part of his greeting to the Christian community.
In this 5-week eCourse, we will discuss the topic of freedom — how the Bible defines it and how we can see freedom manifested in our lives. It will cover Moses and the children of Israel’s trek out of bondage to their arrival on Mount Sinai. We will look at Moses’ confrontation with Pharaoh, his experience at the burning bush, and the challenges the Hebrews faced in the wilderness. Also there will be a discussion on what is required of us to leave Egypt behind and look toward the Promised Land.
The second part of the eCourse will include an in-depth examination of the Ten Commandments and a review of the relationship between God’s law and freedom and discover how God’s laws are actually rules for a dominion existence. We will discuss some of the challenges the Hebrews faced in the Promised Land. Looking to the New Testament, we will study Jesus’ inspiring statements on freedom, and finally take a look at the role the church has to play in preserving and promoting the biblical standard in which to walk at liberty.
Outlined in 4 weeks, we will discuss in depth the first three chapters of the Book of Genesis in relation to the subject of origin and look at the question as to why this type of study is so important in our healing work. If the greatest problem humanity is facing has been defined as not knowing who we are, how can the Bible answer or solve this problem for all time? The question, “Who am I,” is a universal one that reaches beyond any particular culture or people.
