Reassessing the Doctrine of Original Sin is everything you've come to expect from the Center for Judaic-Christian Studies. Our biblically-balanced use of Hebrew language and culture provide fresh insights into living a kingdom life as modeled, taught, and empowered by Jesus of Nazareth. This cohort class begins February 15th, 2020. If you enroll after that date, you'll still have access to all course materials.
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.
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.

Starting February 22nd, we'll meet online on Saturdays at 1:00PM (ET) for an hour to process the week's lesson. James Whitman of JC Studies will facilitate an hour of vibrant questions and conversation designed to get the most out of what we're learning. If you cannot attend that week, you can still leave comments or questions before the meeting. And you can watch the replay including hearing from and reading your fellow student's observations.
The classroom and meeting technology are easy to use, don't require downloading software, and work on any kind of device. All you need is a wi-fi connection.
I want to "Reassess Original Sin" with you. Please join the class today. ~ James
