Talking Jesus - The Course is a video-based resource to help Christians make the most of every opportunity to share their faith naturally and confidently. It includes six practical teaching sessions with inspirational testimonies to give real-life examples from people who are talking about their faith in Jesus in everyday life. There are also short parable-style films designed to get groups thinking, and a 44-page course booklet with helpful discussion questions and challenges.
Copies of the course booklet can be ordered in bulk. Contact the HOPE Together office about discounts for large quantities.
Recommending the Talking Jesus course, the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu says, ‘The most helpful way people hear the Good News of God in Jesus Christ is by a follower of Jesus Christ sharing their encounter with Jesus Christ. This inspiring course will help Christians to be witnesses to Jesus Christ wherever God has placed them.’
HOPE Together, the Church of England, and KingsGate Community Church in Peterborough, developed the course to equip Christians to talk about Jesus, sensitively, appropriately and with respect in everyday life.
The Talking Jesus research showed the UK church that non-Christians know us, they like us and some of them, right now, are open to having conversations with us about Jesus. The more we shared the research, the more we found it encouraged Christians to have more confidence to talk about Jesus and share their faith. That’s why the course was created.
The Talking Jesus course is ideal for small groups. Discuss the video teaching, apply it to your situations, and pray together asking God to help you make Jesus known. The goal is to equip Christians to make the most of every opportunity to help friends, colleagues and family members to consider Jesus for themselves and become his followers.
