Jesus’s parables fit perfectly into a non-Western, Jewish culture that expressed itself through tangible metaphors. He was engaging in sophisticated theological teaching that we miss if we are looking for the abstract arguments of the Greeks.

Discovery Church (7245 Eastern Ave, Grand Rapids, MI) is doing a series called "West to East and Back Again" that is based on my book, Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus. I'll be speaking July 15th (10 AM) to bring the series to its conclusion. You're welcome to join me!

You're invited to join me in a book launch team for my upcoming book, Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus! Members will receive a complimentary copy and be invited to participate in an online discussion with the author before the book is released on January 2.

This is the application link: https://goo.gl/mMgsJw

Please tell pastors, teachers, bloggers, podcasters, etc, who might want a preview copy of Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus to use the same form to contact me (or write me at Tverberg@OurRabbiJesus.com.) We are compiling two lists: one for an online launch team, and another for influencers who should get a preview copy of the book.

The application form will only be active for a few days, so it's important not to delay responding.

A reminder to women to come retreat with me April 24-26 at Miracle Camp, near Kalamazoo, MI, about 2 hrs from Chicago. We will be enjoying some spring and learning from our Rabbi Jesus.

A lot of people are into artisanal foods. I'm into artisanal Bible study. I love the authentic flavors of Hebrew words.

Tomorrow is Pentecost, which has its roots deep in biblical history. It recalled the events of Mt. Sinai and the visions of the prophets when they were commissioned by God. My articles about Pentecost/Shavuot are at the link.
