We went through the "pop-up" book on Jesus Christ.

I talked about many things while going through the book with the participants:

  • The 4 Gospels (Mathew, Mark, Luke, & John)
  • The Synoptic Gospels (Mathew, Mark, & Luke)
  • The parallels & contrasts in the Gospel of St. Luke & the Arts of the Apostles
  • The 7 Signs @ St. John's Gospel
  • The Miracles of Jesus
  • The Manifestation of Jesus to the Gentiles
  • The hidden life of Jesus
  • The contrast between Peter & Judas
  • The Passion of Christ
  • The 40 Days after the Resurrection

Here is a very brief summary of the Functions & Teachings of Jesus Christ...
