The course aims:
to provide a brief discussion of the main events in Jesus' life
to show who Jesus is
to explain what Jesus came to do.
There are 12 chapters. Each chapter contains a series of articles. The events in the chapters are in date order, approximately.
Separate EasyEnglish commentaries [Bible study books] on each gospel [Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John] are already on the Internet. This course uses all 4 gospels. But, where possible, each chapter concentrates on passages from a single gospel.
Barrie Wetherill's course, 'God's message goes to all nations' is also available on the Internet at
You can use this course:
for personal study
to lead a church Bible study
in a group Bible study
or in a Bible College course.
The course is in EasyEnglish Level B. EasyEnglish is a simpler type of standard English. EasyEnglish uses simpler grammar rules and shorter sentences. The vocabulary is only 2800 words. A word list explains words that are not in the standard vocabulary.
We have translated this course into EasyEnglish for the Internet, so that as many people as possible can understand it. Although the language is simpler, the contents of the course are often at an advanced level.
The course is entirely suitable for people whose first language is English. But also, the course is suitable for people who have studied English as a second language. And the course is also suitable for people who cannot read English well.
We check the theology in all our books. That is, we carefully check that everything explains the Bible message accurately. We use mainstream Evangelical Bible commentaries. [That is, we use well-known books that the major churches and Bible colleges use.]
The Bible verses in this course are also in EasyEnglish, so that these passages are easy to understand. Other EasyEnglish translations are available on our website. However, many people who use this course speak English as their first language. Any translation of the Bible is suitable to use with this course. A good modern English translation of the Bible is the New International Version.
