The Life of Jesus: Learning to Listen (NOT learning to Obey)

(Presented Nov 4, 2012 to Mar 16, 2014)

 

Notes about the audios and the handouts:

To listen to the audios:

Left click (once) the link that says "Play Audio" and the file will begin to play.

To download an audio onto your computer:

Right click the link that says: "To Download, right click and 'Save As' link".
Once the menu appears you may name the audio whatever you like.
The file will appear (normally in the "Download" folder) as an mp3 file.

To access the handouts:
Left click (once) on the icon.
A new window will open which displays the handout.

The Handouts are 11" X 17" formatted Microsoft Word documents providing a list of all the verses covered in the study.
(We prefer the 11" x 17" format so that all the verses are kept on one sheet and can be conveniently stored in a letter file or notebook.)
The handouts are helpful for following along while listening to the audio, and for writing your personal notes.


Handouts developed by Connie Tatum.


Attention all long-time listeners!

All the audios in this series have been remastered this year (April - June 2016) for better sound quality. The date of remastering is marked with an asterik (*).

We know many of you have downloaded these studies on your computers, mp3s, phones, flashdrives and have shared with others. You may want to replace the old audio copies of the "Life of Jesus" with the remastered copies.

May these remastered audios enhance the receptivity as well as enjoyment of the studies.

Kindest regards, Johnny & Connie
