Chicago Conference February 2023

Jesus Christ is known the world over for his teachings, and he is widely admired for His wisdom and insight. He is often associated with kindness, gentleness, meekness, and love – even love for one’s enemies. His life has impacted world history like no one else, and He has inspired many. But when we think of Jesus, we tend not to consider Him for His intellect. Yet, no one would deny that as the Son of God he must have been the smartest man who ever lived.


In fact, Jesus was a genius, and His genius can be seen in His teachings. Dr. Peter J. Williams, Principal of Tyndale House, Cambridge, will explore the teachings of Jesus and pull the curtain back on Jesus’s incredible intellect.
