This Intermediate Level course is the next step: application of the procedures, scientific research methods and critical thinking lessons taught in my Beginner Level Religious Studies course,  "Scientific Religion". 

This course material takes a single subject, Jesus Christ, into focus. This will be an in-depth study, not only of the subject matter, but also a critique of the data obtained in other common research methods and procedures.

Step by step, we will find Jesus Christ and know HIM.

While this course does build on the previous course, I will, to some extent, revisit and restate the procedures, scientific research methods and critical thinking lessons learned in the beginner course "Scientific Religion",  as a reinforcement.

I would recommend the taking of that beginner course, however this course material will be sufficient for those individuals interested in taking this as a standalone course.

Anyone interested in taking this or any of my courses, is welcome to contact me. I welcome the opportunity to assist in education.

Thank You

Who this course is for:
  • People that are Religious and non-religious, Christians and non-Christians alike will benefit from this course, in a like manner that Christians benefit from a course study of Buddha or Muhammad or Confucius. Indeed there are many atheists that are far more versed in the history, teachings and doctrine of religions, than the followers of these religions.
  • Jesus Christ, do you desire to more fully understand the history, nature, and truthfulness of the historical figure the world calls Jesus Christ?
  • Are there clues in plain site being ignored? Have you studied this subject well, or do we study how to cook a soufflé with more vigor?

Jesus Christ. Most people know of him through rote repetition of parts of a verse from the Bible or other documents. Some discern Christ through faith. Precious few people take the time to study, research and through observation and application, come to know Christ in a way that is very personal and uplifting.

  Many individuals from all faiths and all denominations repeatedly call on the Name of Jesus Christ, or mention Christ in some way, without ever having studied or researched Jesus Christ.

I invite you to be among the rare group of individuals that earnestly study who Jesus Christ was or is or will be someday.

This thought provoking and study intensive course will assist students in determining the accuracy of what you think you know, about Jesus Christ.

For years it was thought that Jesus Christ was a figurative, mythical person. What are some of the basic facts that we know now, that even our parents may not have known?

What is the myth of Jesus Christ, as compared to the real Jesus Christ?

Basic Facts

In a previous course, "Scientific Religion", we learned in detail how to go about performing a proper investigation.

This section will touch on some of those basic investigation skills practices and processes learned in that first course.

Proper Investigation

The key to good investigation is staying away from euphemisms, rationalizations and understatements.

True truths, should not be feared, hidden, or avoided.

Straight Talk is all that's expected or required.

Several commenters throughout history have touched briefly on "the face of Christ".

We ourselves will take a more scientific and exacting investigation into the "true face of Christ".

This will be an examination, briefly of the text, but more importantly the origin and purpose of "the Creed's".

+ Atonement
4 lectures 27:59

The word atonement has deeply various meanings and implications.

We will examine the depths, the meaning behind the word and the invitations to our daily lives.

Preview 03:52

We understand that salvation comes through Jesus Christ and through "the cross".

But do we completely  understand, what we think we understand?

Are you saved?

The Cross and Salvation

In present day Christian Society, "the cross" is predominant and "the garden" does get some lip service however, a more thorough examination of the Bible reveals how wonderful a treasure "the garden" is, and how mysteriously it is overlooked.

The Garden and Exaltation

Do we have a responsibility with regards to the atonement? If we have a responsibility, what is it and how do we exercise it and fulfill it? If not, is that it?

Our Responsibility
+ Reality Check
3 lectures 21:28

We have the beautiful testimonies of many many individuals that testify about Jesus Christ.

How important are these testimonies?

The Testimony of Others

Of all the testimonies, which is the most important testimony of all?

What / Who  the best Authority we have, concerning Jesus Christ?

The Best Authority?

The words of a Jesus Christ are poignant and exact. Have we paid attention?

Of all HIS words, what are the most important to us and how do we apply those words  our life? What other "hidden in plain sight" facts are there to reveal about Jesus Christ?

HIS Words and obligations.
+ Conclusion

The Church of the Middle Ages took great effort to hide some simple truths from the General Public.

Today the information is out in the open, so who knows about this information now?

Who Knew? Or Knows?

Just as we took the time to research and discover the true Jesus Christ, let us turn now our efforts to find the true Father God.

Father God.
