On behalf of the Jesus 101 team, we want to say that we are here for you through this COVID-19 crisis. We understand that this pandemic is something unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before. Yet we believe that God’s promise of His Presence with us remains true! Our team has put together a playlist of podcasts entitled, “FEAR NOT!” to encourage and remind us that God promises His help in times of crisis. (Click here to download.) In addition, if you or a loved one have been affected by coronavirus, we would encourage you to write in a prayer request. Our team is here to pray for you.
On behalf of our Jesus 101 family, we’d like to wish you and your loved ones a very blessed holiday season. May your home be filled with the love and peace of Jesus, and may you hold on to His promises for your life in the New Year! We appreciate all of your prayers and support for this ministry and we are looking forward to all of the exciting things that the year 2020 has in store! Woohoo!
Jesus 101 is back in the studio this December recording a new video series in both English and Spanish called the Exodus Journey. This twelve part series is about learning to trust God when we don’t understand. For our English programs, special guest Ty Gibson, pastor of Storyline Church, will be joining our Speaker/Director Dr. Elizabeth Talbot. Pastor Gustavo Squarzon will be joining us again as our special guest for the Spanish programs.
Elizabeth Talbot, Speaker/Director for the Jesus 101 Biblical Institute, has authored the newly released 2020 daily devotional book for adults entitled Jesus Wins! published by Pacific Press. Revisit the stories of Jesus and His followers in this life-changing daily devotional. Appreciate His beautiful character, hear His profound truths, and experience His grace and love. This book helps readers to view the circumstances around them through the lenses of faith, and draws them to the foot of the cross, to see Jesus more clearly.
The North American Division administration team and the Jesus 101 executive committee members were presented with copies of Jesus Wins! at the Jesus 101 executive committee fall meeting. Author Elizabeth Talbot stated, “I continue to pray that the Holy Spirit will anoint each reader, so that everyone will get a word from God for their own daily lives through this devotional.”
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.
The Jesus 101 Biblical Institute is launching its new ministry branch of resources specifically designed for children! Jesus 101 – 4 Kids has just released its first product: Discovering Jesus in the Bible is a coloring book that will take children through the Bible with Dr. Elizabeth Talbot. This is the first volume in a series of Jesus 101 coloring books published by Pacific Press that draws theological connections between the Old and New Testament in a way that is easy for children to understand, and encourages them to accept Jesus’ redemption on their behalf.
