“If you want to saturate yourself in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, now you have a handy tool that will do just that.  “Walking With Jesus” highlights every event in Christ’s life using both thought-provoking commentary and a harmony of the gospel accounts.  Forget laying out all of the resources you have side by side, if you really want to really get to know Jesus, this one will take you there.

“I am grateful you have negotiated with Logos to have these included in their software resources.  This is just what they need – something genuinely usable to the lay people of the world.”

   In my 40 years as senior minister at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky, I was reminded almost daily of the importance of Bible study to individual Christians specifically and to the church generally.  How else can we know how to live God-honoring lives and build a church that lives out the Great Commission to make disciples?  Yet surprisingly, solid, Bible-based curricula was not as plentiful as I would have expected.  Glen Copple’s “Getting To Know Jesus” / “Walking With Jesus” Bible Study helps address that deficiency by providing a superb, comprehensive and effective curriculum for local churches who want to take their members to a new level spiritually.

   Here’s what I like about Glen’s series:

   1)  It is Bible based.  Each lesson focuses on related passages of scripture that illustrate a Biblical principle from the life and teaching of Jesus.  Verse-by-verse commentary is provided to help illuminate the lessons from the text.

   2)  It engages the student by employing probing questions and involving them in a discussion of the scripture.

   3)  It is creative.  The maps, charts and outlines are very helpful in enabling the student to grasp and internalize the topic.

   4)  It is practical.  As we trained our Adult Bible Fellowship, Men’s Ministry, Women’s Ministry and other teachers at Southeast we emphasized the importance of application in teaching.  How else can we expect our students to change their lives and change the culture?    

   I recommend “Getting To Know Jesus” / "Walking With Jesus" because this Bible study does exactly that---it helps the participant get to know Jesus in a way that is life changing, church changing, and culture changing.

Crystal Cathedral has delighted in getting acquainted with New Hope Gospel Ministries and the "Getting to Know Jesus" Bible study program.  This program was thoroughly evaluated on our campus by our staff and we recommend it to those who desire to know our Lord more personally.

The Reverend Mr. Glen Copple has the gift of teaching and knowledge.  God has enabled him to help others become more intimately acquainted with Jesus, His own Son.

Mr. Copple is an ordained minister and teacher who has spent time effectively researching the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.

This study is an excellent way to prepare to live eternally with Jesus by "Getting to Know Jesus".  Those who enroll in the Bible study will gain new, meaningful, and applicable insights into the life and teachings of our Savior.  May God guide and bless you in your labors for His Kingdom.

I have had the privilege of meeting Glen Copple and seeing the material for the "Getting To Know Jesus" series. The material is detailed and professional.

I believe this excellent work on the life of Christ will make an impact on anyone who goes through these Bible studies. What an opportunity it is to spend 3 years with Christ. I encourage everyone not to pass up this opportunity for spiritual growth.

I look forward to seeing the final product and using this material in my church.

"The "Getting To Know Jesus" Bible study series is Biblically based.  The study is set in the historical context of the New Testament times.  This fact allows the student to comprehend the intent of the Gospel writers to their audiences.  Once that understanding is clear, we can apply their message to ourselves.

 

The format is clear, easy to follow, and allows for an inductive method of Bible study.  The student is able to draw his/her own conclusions, but within an appropriate Biblical context.

"The individual lessons are written in a clearly understandable way, yet also reveal that much research and Bible study went into their preparation.  .its focus is clearly on the Person and work of Jesus Christ as described in the Gospels.  He has avoided introducing interpretations which would limit their use to a specific denominational understanding of the Scriptures, thus making the course of study usable in any mainline Christian Church."

Pastor Don Ezell, Harbor Christian Center, Wilmington, CA

"I want you to know that I am enjoying your "Getting To Know Jesus" Bible study.  I look forward to each new lesson."                                                                                            Bruce Engle, student, Hays KS  

 

"I commend you on your excellent work in writing and producing "Getting to Know Jesus".   It would be wonderful to be able to offer this material to the incarcerated, but most of our inmate students have squandered what few funds they have had on lawyer's fees and have been incarcerated for years, so they do not have funds to purchase these materials.  Therefore, it is our earnest prayer to God that somewho "Getting to Know Jesus" will be made available to our prisoners through the generosity of the New Hope Gospel Ministries and the churches who support it.

 

"We thank God for men like you, Glen, who have dedicated their lives to making Christian educational materials available to those within the church as well as those without.  The majority of our inmate students are at this point without the church, but through studies such as those you provide, we proceed in faith.

 

"When I viewed the materials you have written on the Life of Christ, including the video accompaniment, I immediately recognized the value of placing these materials inside the prison libraries, making them accessible to all inmates. Most state and federal prisons today have access to video equipment, and by placing these materials in the library, they would be available for whosoever will."

"Reverend Glen Copple has developed a wonderful curriculum that teaches an in-depth study of the life of Jesus.  Isaiah 55:11 says, `So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing, whereto I sent it.'

 

The word shared in Rev. Copple's material is powerful and true.  I recommend the series to those who want to know about Jesus."

Dr. William J Peters, Angel Fire Ministries

 

"I found the New Hope Gospel Ministries plan to be well documented and thoughtfully prepared. ...

All ministries need what I call the "3 M's"", Message, Manpower and Money. 

What could be a more important message than yours - "Getting to Know Jesus".

It gave you just enough information about Jesus, but not too much.  I thought it was great! - Sara Smith, student

"For me to live is Christ, to die is gain"
-- Paul (Philippians 1:21)

In 1905, J. W. McGarvey published one
of his most unusual works, The Four-fold
Gospel, a harmonization of Matthew,
Mark, Luke, and John with running
commentary.  Well known over a century
ago, McGarvey's 4-Fold Gospel was used
for years in the Restoration Bible Colleges as the "Best of the best." 

Now,  a century later, with over 18 years of study and research, Glen Copple trumps the 4-Fold Gospel with a 12 volume practical, useable and teachable handling of the 4 Gospels of Christ in his new series, "Walking With Jesus" quoting the most popular the New International Version..

 

Glen's study series has been used in the development of the new Northside Christian Church in Lakeland, FL as to grounding the people of God in the basics concerning the Gospel of Christ.

 

This 3 year treatise is an easy "pick-up-and-teach" course for the busy teacher as well as an on-line course for the serious Bible  student  who  not only wants a head knowledge of the Gospels, but a life changing  experience as he or she learns to walk in the Ways of the Master. I heartily endorse this series as to the teacher not only "talking the talk" but "walking the walk".  McGarvey was the "best-of-the-best".  Copple is just a little bit better.

 

The Walking With Jesus Bible Study Series is Doctorate level thesis that is practical, down-to-earth and relevant to our lives today.  It is worth an honorary Doctoral Letter.
