Jews, Judaism, Hebrew Scriptures and Land: Foundation Studies for Christians

adatJesus: the “Son of David, King of the Jews, the Messiah of Israel”. If not, then who is He? If not, then who are you worshipping?

Sounds provocative? Or, maybe the incarnational witness of God in the world can be none other than a Jew (from Nazareth)? To know Jesus this way is to know Jesus (see Gospel of John ch.1).

Living and teaching from the only scriptures revealed by God, Jesus lives out a truly human but serious Jewish life in accordance with the righteous instructions of God, as a Torah observant Jew.

Our Jewish Studies classes for Christians and Jews has been an ongoing resource in Kansas City for 21 years. A thousand students have grown uniquely in faith and the knowledge of God and Jesus that root Christian faith in First Century Second Temple Judaism(s), the Land, and the Israel’s Scriptures.

“Learning”, the key to Jewish survival, is also a key for Christian survival. A Biblical faith in an unbroken chain of God in History rooted in the ongoing covenants to and through the Jewish story of redemption is not an option if you really want to “Know Jesus”.

The faith ‘of’ Jesus was a faith in the God of Israel and the revelation of God’s plan for the redemption of the world. Jesus should never be separated from His truly Jewish context and spiritual world view. His practice of Judaism is the Biblical context that prepares the world for God’s name to be one in all the earth, when the nations enjoin themselves to the God of and people of Israel to Jerusalem to worship Him (on the Feast of Tabernacles Zech. 14:16)!

Join us: “In those days ten people from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, ‘Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.'” Zech. 8:23

Courses include the study of ancient and contemporary Judaism, Jewish culture through the centuries, Jewishness of Jesus, Rediscovering Paul the Faithful Jew, and so much more!

After more than 20 years of regret for not finishing college, I decided to make a change and finish what I started. I found Hannibal LaGrange’s degree completion program and decided that taking one class at a time, one night a week would be doable. I loved that the program was designed for working adults; had a clear focus; and provided a clear path to finishing my degree. I would recommend the program to anyone who wants to complete their degree and improve their life. I loved that the program focused more on writing and less on rote memorization for tests. The short, focused, one class at a time allowed me to do this a “bite at a time” and even my less than favorite classes were over before I knew it. The eighteen months flew by and 25 years after leaving college, I marched across that stage and received my bachelor’s degree.

One year later, I decided to continue my education and enroll in Hannibal Lagrange University’s Online Masters Degree program for Organizational Management. I loved the flexibility of participating online whenever it worked for my schedule. I gained real world knowledge that applied to my business and helped my business grow. As a small business owner, everything I do must be practical and beneficial to my company or it isn’t worth the investment. Hannibal LaGrange was worth the investment.

Heart Of America Bible College was established to train men and women for Christian service in the 21st Century. A non-traditional educational delivery system has proven to be very effective in accomplishing this goal. We are committed to the time honored teachings of the Bible, yet “staying in step with the times” to make relevant application of these eternal principles. Heart Of America’s methods are now becoming the wave of the future for ministry training. In many seminaries, excessive time is spent and emphasis placed on repetition of information that is already common knowledge among most students. By challenging the thinking of students they come to know not only what they believe but also why they believe. Once the student comes to this understanding they are much better prepared to minister to others in their local church. We are continually reviewing and adapting our courses to provide our students with a quality Christian education. We currently offer degrees in Theology, Pastoral Theology, Christian Counseling, Scriptural Psychology, Christian Administration, and Christian Education. As a graduate of Heart Of America you will be uniquely prepared to fulfill the plan of God for your life.

Students can earn undergraduate or graduate degrees from associate, bachelor, master or doctorate levels. Classes may be taken on-line or by correspondence. Major courses of study include: Pastoral Studies, Biblical Theology, Scriptural Psychology, Church administration, and Christian Education.

Students may enroll by calling 816-226-7061 or emailing President Dr. C. C. McCarroll at mccarrollcc01@gmail.com. Additional information including financial may be obtained by clicking the link below. After arriving at Financial Information, scroll down to the information and fees.
