"That which mostly attracted my attention in these classes, is that we are called to plant churches not to enrich ourselves or to become well known or make a name for ourselves, but to add new souls among the saved. I also appreciated the ideas of leadership (a leader is someone who makes other leaders), the “essential characteristics” – many thanks sir! Your well taught classes opened my eyes to many things!"

Je rends grâce à Dieu pour la compréhension de ce merveilleux cours.
J’ai appris comment examiner la langue, le contexte littéraire, historique et culturel. Ensuite comment comprendre le langage figuré et l’étude des paraboles.
Merci au Dr John Symons pour les explications approfondie et claire.

Enseignement tres important afin de ne pas faire dire a la Parole de Dieu ce qu’elle ne veut pas dire mais de comprendre ce que l’Esprit Saint a voulut nous communiquer a Travers l’ecrivain

L’interprétation de parabole a toujours été difficile à comprendre depuis l’époque de Jésus, c’est pourquoi le disciples posaient toujours les questions de savoir en profondeur ce qu’elle disaient, en privé auprès de Jésus Christ.
C’était toujours pas facile même a moi, mais voilà gloire à Dieu par cette leçon je comprends qu’il y a des principes nous facilitant a bien interpréter la parabole : d’où il faut constater de façon concises les points principales de la parabole. Prendre note de tous les dictions généraux clés qui se dégagent immédiatement après la parabole, s’il y a un contexte claire nous devons le noter et se demander certaines questions et chercher les éléments clés dans l’histoire auquel la parabole tourne, un chemin facile et simple surtout clair.
