Jesus in Judea: Opposition and Rejection

This course examines the Judean phase of Jesus' ministry and discovers the Jewish opposition which led them to turn over one of their own for crucifixion.


As amazing as it seems, the people Jesus came to save actually rejected Him. In Jesus in Judea: Opposition and Rejection, students will survey the Judean phase of Jesus’ ministry and gain insight into His teachings and actions that increased the Jewish opposition to the point where they would turn one of their own countrymen over to the Romans for crucifixion.
