Most of these inspiring and oftentimes scholarly discourses of Jesus were delivered to individuals during his two-year trip around the Mediterranean regions with the Indian traverlers, Gonod, and his son, Ganid. Some of Jesus' first instances of personal ministry, these words of instruction on matters philosophical and scientific, are just as pertinent today as they were then. The last three discourses were delivered later, and in the course of the Master's public ministry, as instruction for his apostles, and others.
