    I would this study. My only drawback is the long lecture, I live in the country and only have satellite for internet. Is there anyway they can be recorded and an audio ordered?
    Thanks for all your informative articles!

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      SHeila, you are welcome. To take this course you MUST have good internet connection since it is done via web conferencing. For now I think you should continue to study via this group that does not require it as much. Where are you located by the way?

  2. Ramonana

    I would also want 2 know what is meant by free Jewish studies?

  3. Borje Persson

    I am interested in this and would like to know what you mean by a free subscription for Jewish studies for Christians?

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

    Shalom,what a wonderful course,hopefully i’ll think and reason like a jew

  10. Phyllis J. Williams

    Training that is timely and necessary as Israel continues to be the focal point in modern history conflicts as prophesied in the Bible. It is essential that all people (especially Christians, Jews and Muslims) understand the background and future of the Mideast conflicts as predicted in the Bible. Together we can pave the way to peace by faith in God’s Word which was first preserved by the ancient Hebrews, and later spread to the gentiles as the gospel of Jesus Christ by the Jewish Apostles of the New Testament.

    Much Needed Material,

    SHALOM! Excellent Idea! I am looking forward with much anticipation to February 2014 and the inauguration of this exciting venture into Judeo-Christian studies. We must learn from one another as Jesus was a Jew, so should all Christians delve deeper into such studies. SHALOM! 🙂

  16. Rory Lennox

    This sounds like a very interesting subject. I hope I will be able to participate.

  17. Miriam

    I want to take this course very much. Cost….I will pay it! The major problem will be the time it is taught live. I work nights and weekends. I love e-Teacher’s format and student population participation. Dr Eli is so very interesting and well studied. I want to be his student soaking up all his knowledge as best I can.

  20. Sonny Huss

  23. Ayobola

    Sounds exciting.

  24. hoda mohareb

    i am so glad to send me this invite, this is an opportunities to study parallel history of jewish and christiniaty, search a link and common things are trasures must be discovered and the bases of starting a new , strong realations and benefit of our commom heritage and pearls .

  25. Dr Wesley B Rose

    I am glad you sent me this invite – you know my heart and my passion for study. Perspective is so very important when studying the Bible. So much of the beauty and sheer genius within the scriptures can easily be misunderstood or missed entirely without having the proper frame of mind. I am so looking forward to this study of the may facets of scripture and the fundamental perspectives necessary to truly enjoy and understand the wealth and importance. It looks as if it will be a historian’s key to the candy store.

  26. Naenny Verena

    It is a good Idea, please give me more information when available.
    I hope that you will show the parallism of the Talmud (Mishna an Gemara) as Christians often think that Jesus has taught new things.

  27. Joan Davidson

    Sounds great!! I would love to have more information when it is available. Thanks.

  38. José Raúl Gandarilla

    Shalom. Siempre será de interés las relaciones que a raíz de la religión se hacen necesarios entre judíos y cristianos, pues mutuamente se guardan recelo, cuando al final estarán juntos pues uno es extensión del primero. ¿Cómo serán libradas las diferencias entre estos dos pueblos en un futuro no lejano?. Aguardamos sean fijadas las condiciones del Curso.

  53. Peter Carter

    Count me in, is there a cost involved or is this to be run as a MOOC?

    If the course meets the expectations that the blog has given then it will be Lind blowingly good.
