Néstor H. Petruk
"Very much enjoyed how the detail of Jacob's dilemma was emphasized by Prof Chaja - I saw it as God's confirmation for the basis of the Christian ministry that I have felt led to apply in today's world. "God is in charge, ask Him to take care of your situation instead of trying to solve it yourself - and resist the temptation to tell Him how to fix things.""
"Good teachers. Good materials. Very important themes. "
"This is a wonderful course to help understand the true context of the New Testament. The NT writers, for the most part, wrote from a Jewish perspective and/or with a Jewish understanding to the early Church which was (mostly) Jewish. Gentile readers must reconcile this fact in order to truly understand what the writers intended in their epistles, even when writing to Gentile believers (i.e.: Galatians). Rightly dividing/accurately handling the Word of Truth (2 Tim. 2:15) requires understanding the historical context as the foundation for correct interpretation. "
