The Footsteps of Jesus in Galilee

Speaker: Rev. Dr. Keith Shubert [Lecturer, East Asia School of Theology]

You will experience the Text literally leaping off the pages as we survey the ministry of our Lord within the Galilean context, hiking through the sites and studying the stories in the places they happened.

Journey through the land where Jesus grew up, presented Himself as Messiah, and from where He chose and mentored His disciples.

Step into the ancient footsteps of Jesus in Galilee with us and be transformed!

Jesus in Conflict (Jerusalem)

Jesus in Conflict (Jerusalem)

Speaker: Rev. Dr. Keith Shubert [Lecturer, East Asia School of Theology]

Whenever Jesus visited Jerusalem, there always seemed to be conflict. Usually, over the Sabbath Laws, Jesus often contended with both the Pharisee and Sadducee leadership.

Home of the sacred Temple and the Jewish Sanhedrin, the Jewish capital also provided the context for the basis of the forgiveness of human sins.

  • Abide in God and trust in His providential care during anxious seasons
