This study offers eight weeks to help our message to be less foreign and more acceptable to the Japanese heart and mind. We use Japanese redemptive analogies, Japanese religion, Japanese religious consciousness. We look at good Japanese communication, Japanese literature, festival days and ceremonies, and general objections. Let us bridge the cultural gap for Jesus.
