The Life and Teachings of Jesus Reading Project (LTJ)
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the LTJ?
The Life and Teachings of Jesus Reading Project (LTJ) is a biennial project that encourages Urantia Book readers around the world to read together Part IV of The Urantia Book, from Papers 120 to 196. To facilitate the reading, we created videos of all the Papers in Part IV. The videos contain a full narration of the Papers displaying hundreds of beautiful artworks from a large variety of artists that reflect the artist’s conception of Jesus’ life and teachings. You will be amazed at all the beautiful renditions.
The LTJ Project consists of about 250 videos covering Papers 120-196, plus an additional 36 videos of selected Papers that have special meaning for our planet.
What is the Purpose of the LTJ Project?
We believe the LTJ Project will unite the global readership in:
- becoming more Jesus-oriented
- becoming more ministry-oriented
- developing the mind of Christ
- and engaging more with the Spirit of Truth.
And it will aid and develop new readers and new members of The Urantia Book community.
This LTJ Project, coupled with the annual commemoration of The Remembrance Supper, will quicken the progress of our planet by developing an international spiritual brotherhood based on the life and teachings of Jesus that will lead us more directly to light and life.
Who Can Participate?
Everyone! The LTJ Project is open to all visitors to the site and everyone who is interested in learning more about the life and teachings of Jesus, whether or not you have a copy of The Urantia Book.
When Does it Start?
The LTJ Project, including the specially selected videos, will cover a period of two years, and restarts in January every odd year, i.e., 2023, 2025, 2027 and so on.
How do I participate?
You can find the videos on this website, and on our app Uniting Urantia. You can download the app from Google and Apple Stores, or from our website UnitingUrantia.org.
How can I have access to the entire video library?
We encourage you to follow the weekly schedule so that you can be united with other readers. But the entire video library can be find at this link. The videos are a part of the curriculum for our School, The Christ Experiment’s School of Ambassadors. The artwork is being used under the Fair Use Doctrine that allows us to use proprietary artwork for educational purposes. For this reason, you can view the videos, but they are not available for download.
Some readers are facilitating lively online discussions about the weekly videos. To join in the discussion, contact the hosts.

We hope you choose to participate in the LTJ Project, and if you do, please spread the word, especially to new readers.
We truly believe that reading Part IV together as a community will unite us as the nucleus of an international spiritual brotherhood under our Master Son and Universe Sovereign Christ Michael.
And it will demonstrate to the world the power of his simple message of the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man to unite the world in peace, and lead us to light and life.
