What are the ideas behind, and the implications of what is commonly known as "Original Sin"? Judaism and Christianity have long been at odds over this dogma developed by Augustine of Hippo in the 4th century. Together, we'll take a comprehensive look at the biblical texts and bring much-needed clarity to this controversial subject while examining its profound implications for our view of God, man, and salvation.
This course is for every disciple of Jesus.

What a paradigm shift for me! Learning so much from JC Studies courses, CDs, etc. This one was a game changer since not too many in the church have taken this on, and in the past many years I have only found one short teaching on the subject of Original Sin, or what it really means to believers today. Thank you, Dwight (OBM!!!) I do not carry an inherited guilt (as the Roman Catholic Church taught me as a child, that God was a wrathful old Man ready to punish on a whim), but that my Abba abounds in loving chesed for all of us, and that through the death and resurrection of my Master Yeshua, death itself has been defeated. Amen and amen!! This is a lesson I will read and study many times in depth and share with friends. Thank you so much for opening this subject up to us.....bless you all!Read Less

Dwight A. Pryor, ThD, founded The Center for Judaic-Christian Studies (JC Studies) in 1984 and served as its president until his death in 2011. A respected scholar, he traveled the world as one of the most widely acclaimed teachers concerning the Jewish roots of Christianity. Dwight published video curricula and over fifty audio seminars using the tools of language and culture to explore every aspect of biblical theology from a Hebraic perspective. His wisdom and insights continue to edify and encourage disciples everywhere.
Bold. Paradigm shifting. Timely. Simply Dwight at his best. People I care for will be more whole because of this class.
The application conversations led by James helped the teaching get from my head to my heart.
This study deserves way more than 5 stars. It could possibly be the most life-changing and powerful study Dwight ever taught.
