The Father’s strategy to mature the Church into fullness before the second coming of Jesus and to sustain her at the end of the age is to unfold the beauty of His Son in an unprecedented way. Students delve into the great mystery of the God-man: the wonder of Christ’s preexistence, incarnation, life, death, resurrection, ascension, and return, pondering what causes elders to bow, angels to sing, and humans to weep.
