Thank you for the privilege of being a part of your Class regarding The Didache and the First Century Church. I learned what the Apostles taught in context with Scriptures. This study shows that the early Gentiles were encouraged to be a part of Torah observance and how to live according to Torah. I continue to hunger for more truth as given via the Judaic Studies Institute. It is a delight to be taught by Rabbin/Dr. Deborah Brandt.
The Didache Study class was an excellent class and I highly recommend it. I feel I gained more knowledge and understanding of the early Jewish believer-Gentile community and how Gentiles were taught “The Way of Life”.
Class notes that were provided for each session were an added bonus! The information provided in these notes offered a structural and organized review of each chapter which can be used as a reference to recall main points in the chapters. They also provided additional information not covered in the chapters which only enhanced my understanding.
Dr. Deborah Brandt is an exceptional teacher who is always willing, and prepared, to answer all your questions. Her knowledge and years of experience and study is evident and her desire to ensure that all her students understand the materials is authentic.

The Rabbi's at JSI have a wealth of knowledge that is ready to be consumed. They are truly anointed and led by the Holy Spirit. In my time at JSI, I was able to turn what I had been learning for fifteen years into a formal education. I enjoyed the information that I encountered at JSI because it was new, familiar, and spiritually refreshing.
