The purpose of the study was to determine what degree of understanding third year graduates of the SLVN Seminary District had of the nature and mission of Christ.
The study was composed of a random sample of 200 third year seminary graduates. Each participant answered a questionnaire designed to test his understanding of the nature and mission of Christ. The responses were tabulated and presented in written and illustrative form.
The students met the minimum established standard of 75% in four of the five concepts which they were questioned concerning the nature of Christ. The students met the minimum established standard in five of the eight concepts testing their understanding of the mission of Christ.
Overall comprehension of both the nature and mission of Christ were considered adequate as the students averaged 80% correct responses to all questions.
