Who is JESUS


The lessons have blessed me.

The talk on Jesus has a “photo of Jesus” which I heard that someone got a skull from an archeological site & believed it to be of JESUS. Kindly help me get more clarity on this. Did JESUS ressurect with a new body leaving the old one in the grave? I didn’t get how that photo supports the ressutection of JESUS.

Thank you for the good work! Blessings

A New Understanding of he Biblical Narrative


It was a great opportunity to learn The Biblical Narrative which I enjoyed greatly. My knowledge expanded and improved to another level with regard to this study. You need to have an intellectual knowledge as well as spiritual knowledge to have a great picture of the Old Testament as well as the New Testament. Going through this study was a tremendous blessing and as our personal understanding cannot interpret the narrative without a great teacher and my thanks goes to Matt. This study has truly impacted my life and is a new experience. I can share this knowledge with other believers now and can recommend to anyone who is seeking to study God’s Word. Thank you Axx College and Ministry. Blessings!!

Getting the message right


Having taken this course has broaden my understanding of the WORD to a completely different level. The lectures were so amazing in the sense that one had to revisit/review them to get a clearer understanding of the principle discussed. I personally liked it when the emphasis was always put on the original audience of the message before one could likened it to us today when doing the process of interpretation and analysis of the Scriptures. i found this course so informative!

Analyse and Apply the Bible Course: A Practical and Accessible Approach to Biblical Study


The goal of this course is to equip students with the skills needed to analyze biblical passages in their original historical and cultural context, and then apply the main principles to contemporary ministry contexts.

The course aims to achieve two essential outcomes. The first is analyzing the original meaning and application of biblical passages. We learned to examine how the historical and cultural background of the original audience influenced their understanding. Key tools like study Bibles were used to discern important literary and theological elements. Integrating cultural, historical, literary and theological analysis helped interpret the intended meaning and application for the original readers.

The second outcome involves applying biblical passages to modern ministry settings. We explored various contemporary ministry contexts to identify suitable ones for application. The differences between the ancient context and modern situations were evaluated. The core principles of passages relevant today were then extracted. Finally, these principles were applied in a practical way within a chosen present-day ministry context.

Through achieving these two outcomes, I gained valuable skills in accurately analyzing biblical texts and figuring out relevant and meaningful ways to apply Scriptural lessons to our lives and ministries now. The course equipped me with methodology that will be useful for ongoing study of God’s word. I would highly recommend it.

I am in God's plan


Very clear teaching and illustration of where I am in God’s ultimate plan.

It was very interesting and thought provoking 🙂


I thought this course was very thought-provoking. I especially liked the lesson about how we need to proclaim the good news in a different way rather than just washing it down. It really resonated with me.

Understanding God's plan


Knowing and understanding God’s plan from the very beginning of the book of Genesis and after the fall of man is so amazing. God by His divine and master plan makes the church and the individual that trusted Him to be partakers of His something big. I am so grateful as being in that circle and to go and proclaim God’s saving grace to all.
