Jesus Rediscovered


Albert Einstein declared that, ‘No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus’.

This 5-session course focuses on the Man who chopped history in half and what it means to own Jesus as Teacher, Example, Saviour and Lord.



Jesus Rediscovered

An ecumenical course for discussion groups in five sessions – ideal for Lent, yet not Lent-specific.

Comprising course booklet, audio and transcript

You can think you know someone and then they do or say something that makes you wonder whether you really do. This is something that happens again and again to those who study the Bible, in particular the New Testament. And nowhere do these surprises hit you more than in reading the life and teaching of Jesus.

So Jesus Rediscovered is truly about re-discovering who Jesus was, what he taught, and what that means for his followers today. Prepare to be surprised, even shocked – but every generation of Christians has to do this rediscovering for themselves. Also included in the booklet and on the audio material a number of present day Christians share what Jesus means to them.

Jesus Rediscovered deals with issues of interest to all Christians, but might be especially appropriate to those who feel this is the time to refresh their vision with a bit of a challenge.

5 sessions:
1. Jesus’ Life and Teaching
2. Following Jesus
3. Jesus: Saviour of the World
4. Jesus is Lord
5. Jesus and the Church

The course booklet, written by Canon John Young includes a good selection of questions at the end of each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging discussion. Each group needs 1 copy of the course audio and group members will benefit from having their own personal copy of the course booklet. In addition many groups find the transcript, which sets out the words as spoken on the recorded material, invaluable.

The participants on the course audio are: Bishop Tom Wright, Paul Boateng, Sr Lavinia Byrne and Joel Edwards. Dr David Hope introduces the course and provides the Closing Reflections.
