Course Options: This class can be taken as a standalone class or can be taken as part of a certificate program.

Standalone: This course explores one of the main tenants of our faith and is, therefore, one that everyone should consider taking at some point. This class gives each student a solid understanding of the Messianic expectation from various first-century groups and also looks at what the Bible prophecied concerning the Messiah. Finally, this course looks at Yeshua’s understanding and self-realization of his status as Messiah.

Program Path: Those who are looking for a more structured workload will find this course is required for two and three-year certificates. This class does not have to be taken in a specific order to qualify for certificate credit, although we recommend taking after first-year classes are completed. This class counts for 3 quarter hours within the certificate program.

Course Requirements: This class requires the ability to proficiently read the English language, listen to audio lectures, and basic knowledge of a computer with an internet connection.

Workload: The average workload each week is around three hours. This includes a lecture, assigned reading, as well as interaction in the class forum. A final exam is also required at the end of the class to complete the course.
