JC 105: The Messianic and Eschatological Significance of the Afikomen and the 3rd and 4th Cups - Rev. Mark Robinson

The bread and the juice, so well-known to Christians who regularly participate in the Lord’s Table (Communion), have a messianic and eschatological insight that is missed by most believers. Jesus’ teaching at His last Passover Seder communicated some amazing truths about the bread and the cups of wine (juice). Christians miss these insights because they don’t know the Jewish cultural background to the Lord’s Table. This class will help you to understand the significance of what Jesus was teaching about the bread and the juice by understanding the Jewish cultural background.

JC 106: Chanukah and Christmas - Rev. Mark Robisnon

Why is the birth of Jesus celebrated on Dec. 25th? Is it based on paganism? Many Christians believe this to be the case. There is a factor that is rarely, if ever, considered on why the date of December 25th was chosen. It is the Jewish festival of Chanukah. What light does the history and the celebration of Chanukah shine on the December 25th date? This class looks at the holidays of Christmas and Chanukah and how and why the celebration of Chanukah by the Jewish believers in Jesus in the late first and early second century might be the reason why most of the world looks at December 25th as the birthdate of Jesus.

CW 102: Sabbath of Lord's Day? What Christians Should Understand - Rev. Mark Robinson

The question of Sabbath worship for Christians has been the subject of debate for centuries. Should Christians worship on Saturday or Sunday? Or, perhaps another day? Sabbatarian groups such as 7th Day Adventists, as well as others, insist God wants Christians to worship on Saturday, the Sabbath.

CW 106: Timing of the Ezekiel 38-39 Invasion - Rev. Mark Robinson

The timing of the Gog/Magog invasion of Israel in Ezekiel 38-39 has produced many different scenarios. From as early as 3.5 years prior to the beginning of the 7 year Tribulation period, at the beginning of the Tribulation, around the middle of this 7 year period, and at the end of this period, proponents of one of these scenarios will provide biblical verses and logic to back their viewpoint. This class will look at what is probably the PRIMARY biblical argument to help us establish the timing of this invasion. The PRIMARY biblical argument is the place of the Abrahamic Covenant in establishing the timing.
LESSONS: 4
TOTAL DURATION: Approx. 1.25 hours

CW 107: Understanding the Old and New Testaments - Rev. Mark Robinson (COMING SOON)

Most Christians would probably say this is a needless question – “we all know they speak of the section of “Genesis to Malachi” and “Matthew to Revelation” – as they speak of the two books of that make up the Bible. Is this understanding correct, biblically based, or is it accepted because it is almost universally understood and used in the Christian world this way? An examination of the Scriptures will give you a completely different understanding of the biblical use of these terms.
LESSONS: 3
TOTAL DURATION: Approx. 1 hour

CW 109: Developing a Biblical Philosophy of History - Rev. Mark Robinson (COMING SOON)

Israel in the Bible and History ( IS )

IS 101: Why Focus on Israel? - Rev. Mark Robinson

From Genesis 12 to the end of Revelation some 80% -85% of the material is about Israel and the Jewish people. This class will focus on why it is a MUST to understand God’s plan for Israel and the Jewish people if one is to correctly understand the word of God. Lessons such as “Salvation is of the Jews,” “Scripture is of the Jews,” “Israel: The Key to Biblical Understanding,” “The Church as a parenthesis in God’s Plan,” and “Israel as God’s blessing for the world” are some of the lessons.
LESSONS: 9
TOTAL DURATION: 3 hrs.

IS 102: Israel: The Focal Point of History - Rev. Mark Robinson

God’s plan for the world can be viewed from a “broad” view and a “narrow” view. Both of these plans will be examined with more of an emphasis on God’s narrow plan, which is developed around Israel and the covenants God gave to Israel.

IS 103: God's Answer to Skeptics - Rev. Mark Robinson

Apologetics is “giving a defense.” For Christians, apologetics is defending what we believe. The primary “apologetic” that God gives showing He is the one true God is the nation of Israel and her people, the Jews, in prophecy. This class looks at how the God of Israel challenges Jew and Gentile to consider the history of Israel – past, present, and future – as His “apologetic” on why He is the one and only God. It should be of interest that the God of Israel challenges all other gods to meet the same criteria He has met in order to establish that they are the one true god. After establishing that He is the one and only God, the God of Israel than tells Jew and Gentile to embrace His servant – the Messiah!
LESSONS: 6
TOTAL DURATION: 1.75 hrs.

IS 104: Understanding the Israel and Palestinian Issue - Rev. Mark Robinson

The Israel and Palestinian “peace” process has been ongoing since 1993. The reporting of the media on the conflict is most often “fake” news. Half-truths, fabrications, and lies divorced from historical realities has duped the world into a false view of what is happening. This class will provide historical context, background information, and expose the lies of the Palestinian Authority and their media cohorts. It sets the record straight. The last lesson will examine how the Israel and Palestinian issue have prophetic implications.

LESSONS: 9                                                                          DURATION: 2.75 hrs.

 

IS 105: Israel: God's Key to World Evangelism - Rev. Mark Robinson

Why should Jewish evangelism be part of a churches mission’s program? Why should a Christian be interested in Jewish evangelism? Missiology courses in Bible colleges, discussions about who to support in mission committee discussions in churches, oftentimes look at numbers as the main criteria for missions outreach. For example, why should we be involved in supporting Jewish missions/missionaries when there are 14 million Jewish people in the world and 7 billion Gentiles. This may sound logical, but is it biblical? This class will look at God’s priority in mission/evangelism and why Jewish missions should be a priority. This class will challenge your view on missions outreach.
LESSONS: 9
TOTAL DURATION: 3 hrs.
