The Divine Division of the Holy Scripture


This course has thrown more light on how the various books of the Bible were composed. And how they speak distinctively to every generation on the programming of God for humanity and the world.

New Beginnings


Always wanted to learn more, yet I started but could never finish any biblical studies. Upon discovering AXX. I become glued to Matt Jarlett way of minister the Gospel. First time I could finish video footage listen to someone for the duration of the minutes without getting into a stagnation mode. Throughout it becomes a WOW or a smile due to new Revelation i never heard before. Jared calmness has put me at ease and open the ears of my heart to listen to him. To God be the Glory Amen.

Observing helps one to take right decision


In this course i learned that i observation is applied it will help one to take the right decisions. It is like when driving a car we need always be observant to other road users especially when changing lanes we need to observe whether it is clear and safe to do so. Similarly with the word of God we need to observe in order to apply correct principle of interpretation.

I also learned the triangle of God at the top, original audience on the left, and us todayand the application for contemporary audience .

Faithful witness - yielded, surrendered and in sinc with our God


I enjoyed hearing the commentary on the History – how the mission of God has been out working throughout His timeline. To also consider what that looks like for HIs people in this post Covid 19 world. Being positioned to have a listening ear that allows Holy Spirit to renew our minds, strengthen and prepare us to receive His blueprint and strategy that will direct our steps for the new era we have entered into. A faithful witness with a heart always positioned to learn from His perspective. Yielded and surrendered to Holy Spirit – being willing to move as He moves, truly in sinc and as one with Him.

Help in understanding the bible & it's importance for us.


This course was presented so well that it allowed me to further understand the bible by putting it in to context & how if we understand the original audience then we can better understand its meaning & application for us today.

I loved how Andrew took us through the development of the church & it’s various denominations.

There were so many other highlights too many to mention but the way the course put things in practical terms in asociation with the times & us helped me to get so much more out of it.

Building Kingdom Awareness


As a christian of many years I found this course refreshing and revising. It both revised my knowledge of the bible and provoked thought about the themes there in. It then turned thought towards the kingdom and kingdom thinking. In these challenging times (2021) we are beset by information, by opinions, by people telling us what we should be concerning ourselves with. It is easy to forget to “seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness Matt 6:33” and this course has reminded me of that.
