Length of sessions
Christianity Explained starts from the assumption that the enquirer knows little or nothing about the Bible or the basic Gospel. It seeks to teach the Gospel slowly, one point each lesson, over a six-unit course. It is based on the Gospel of Mark, as this is the shortest and easiest gospel for someone starting out. Enquirers are assured from the beginning they will not be asked to read aloud, pray, sing or answer Bible questions that may embarrass them. Discussion however is encouraged.
Six sessions cover:
Jesus the Son of God
Jesus: His Crucifixion
Jesus: His Resurrection
Grace, Not Works
Adult. Cross Examination is a special edition designed for teenagers.
