Jesus 101 has just launched an exciting new five-part evangelistic series, hosted by Dr. Elizabeth Talbot and special guest, Roy Ice, Speaker-Director of Faith For Today. This free video series teaches about God’s Indestructible Love for us from Genesis to Revelation and is designed for churches, small groups, and/or individual study. This multi-media, interactive, plug-and-play five-part series discusses God’s Redemption plan from the perspective of God as a loving Father who lost His children and is willing to do whatever is needed, even die in their place in order to get them back. Each 30 minute session contains three questions for discussion, where the host can pause the video for participants to interact in small groups. Small group facilitators should be selected beforehand.
On the www.IndestructibleLove.org page you will find several introductory videos, including instructions for group facilitators. Additionally, under the “Resources” section you will find a downloadable “appeal cards” pdf, as well as a link to the Indestructible Love Signs of the Times special issue that contains the five lessons of Indestructible Love for participants to follow the sessions and take home. In order to receive the link to access these five sessions, complete the registration form at the bottom of the page (on the Indestructible Love website). Thank you so much for joining us in this exciting journey to understand more about God’s Indestructible Love!

This June, the Jesus 101 Biblical Institute celebrates 10 years of ministry work. Founded and led by Dr. Elizabeth Viera Talbot, this media ministry was created for the purpose of helping people find Jesus in all the Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation. Upon celebrating this milestone, Dr. Talbot stated, “We have come this far by God’s grace and His grace will lead us HOME!” Jesus 101 has produced many resources that teach about Jesus’ love for us. These resources have been developed in both English and Spanish and include study guides, books, video programs, audio devotionals, and many more. Jesus 101 has worked to create resources to reach those seeking to know the real Jesus of the gospel. Some of the ministry outreach efforts include prison ministries, hospital outreach, and evangelistic partnerships with local churches and conferences to provide biblical study resources. Please join Jesus 101 in celebrating this milestone in ministry work.
Jesus 101 breaks ground on constructing a video/audio recording studio and two edit rooms at their headquarters in Riverside, CA. The construction project is expected to be completed in two months. The recording studio will allow the ministry to record new video and audio programs in both English and Spanish; including Biblical Studies, Plug Into Life, Conectate a la Vida, and much more. Jesus 101 is an official media ministry of the North American Division and is housed at the Pacific Union Conference’s Riverside office.
