Watchtower Bible School of Gilead is the formal name of the missionary school of Jehovah's Witnesses , typically referred to simply as Gilead or Gilead School. In , Nathan H. Knorr , then president of the Watchtower Society , proposed the Watchtower Bible School of Gilead as an opportunity to expand their global preaching efforts.
No tuition was to be charged. Five months later, graduating students began to move out to their assignments in nine Latin-American countries, including Cuba. As of , Gilead has trained classes. Theology lecturer George D. Chryssides writes that the initial Gilead syllabus was "described as the Advanced Course in Theocratic Ministry"; within months the program led to "similar training" in congregations as the Theocratic Ministry School.
The school is held twice each year and lasts about five months. Gilead School's main textbook is the Bible. Lectures and student presentations focus on a verse-by-verse study of each book of the Bible, alternating between the Old and New Testaments, which they refer to as the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures.
The curriculum is based on Jehovah's Witnesses' New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures , although other reference material, including other Bible translations are used. Some students receive additional practical training for translation and literature production. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

JOHN Jesus then said: After you have lifted up the Son of man, then you will know that I am he and that I do nothing of my own initiative; but just as the Father taught me, I speak these things.
