Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? Skeptics dismiss the Jesus of the Gospels by claiming there is no evidence in the case for Christ. Lee Strobel disagrees. The former legal journalist and one-time atheist knows how to ask tough questions. His own search for truth led him to faith in Christ. In this video series, you will investigate the truth about Jesus Christ. Rejecting easy answers, we will sift through fascinating historical evidence and weigh compelling expert testimony. After this series, you will have a greater understanding and the facts in proving that Jesus is real. There will be instructor led discussion after each session.

The book of Hosea—it’s a deeply personal and passionate love story, yet it’s a difficult story. As an account full of harsh judgment unfolds, we find in its midst a rare and pure gem: the truest and purest of loves. Hosea, an old-testament prophet, preached his own life message. It provides background to better understand the intricacies of the man and his message. You’ll be guided to understand, but more importantly, to apply the message of the prophet of love. The book will challenge you, yet have you more amazed by the unfailing love of God for His wayward people, and for all people. Hosea showers us with hope—pointing to the coming of the promised Messiah.

No city is more unique and eternally important to so many people as the city named Jerusalem. There is a strange prominence given to Jerusalem and the Jerusalem Temple in the pages of the Bible, in the world today, and in the future world of the believer. Of what significance are Jerusalem and the Temple to the world of today? Will the Jerusalem Temple ever be rebuilt? What happened to the Ark of the Covenant? Where are the “temple treasures?” This course considers the fascinating answers to these and other questions about this most unique City of God.
