Course Info

The heavenly sphere has always fascinated mankind.  There are so many questions about supernatural beings that come from the divine realm.  This course is presented in a seminar style. It assembles recorded discussions between several IBC faculty members and guests: Yeshaya Gruber, Nicholas Schaser, Pinchas Shir, Cindy Parker, Ashely Lyons, and Tupa Guerra.  The professors engage some key ancient texts about the beings from the divine realm and even tackle questions that come during the live broadcast from the audience.  Here are several fascinating topics they tackle: "The Divine Council of God", "Angels and Demons", "Satan, Lucifer, and Beelzebul", and  "God, Satan, and Unforgivable Sin". Instead of a single lecturer, this course features a whole team of experts who bring their combined knowledge into these unique dialogues. You will not be disappointed!

    The content is easy to follow. I hear things I 've never heard before. In some areas it makes me realize I have taken someone else's interpretation without really analyzing it.
