The Y Team Option
The “Y” stands for “Yeshua”, the actual name of the “Jesus of Christianity.” It would be over 1,500 years after Yeshua lived and taught before the word "Jesus" first appears. Why is important for people, especially Christians, to know about the life and teachings of Yeshua? Consider the following questions:
Learning about the life of Yeshua and accurately understanding his teachings in light of his culture and time period provide answers to the above questions and many others. Y Team members learn how to use techniques of modern science to better understand what the words of Yeshua meant to him -- and how different Christian beliefs developed over the centuries. They also learn how to participate in conversations with people that have conflicting or different belief systems -- and do it in ways that are mutually beneficial.
We use a team approach because it best reflects the model Yeshua used to train his students. His method of teaching was much more like a coach than a professor. His goal was to develop the skills of his team members to do the things he taught, for example if they became angry. Yeshua introduced a revolutionary new message based on a radical interpretation of a commandment of mutual love. His team members learned how to love to God, love themselves and love the people that they encountered in their lives – and then practiced their skills for doing those things. Yeshua never expected his followers to compartmentalize their “religion” from the rest of their lives.
Y Team members address the unique challenges they have today that Yeshua and his team members never faced – living in a democracy, having the power of social media at their fingertips, being surrounded by people from multiple societies with very different cultures, scientific, etc. An amazing thing that Y Team members learn is that even in our very different world Yeshua’s values, morals and wisdom principles still apply to our lives today.
Y Team members are networked together through social media options. We will be adding live streaming sessions soon. In addition, team members receive information about activities, questions and discussions by email that isn’t posted online. Team members are encouraged to send comments, questions and suggestions with the Y Team coaching staff. Many of the responses will be shared with the entire team, unless they are related to personal situations.
