New Bible Study: Short Stories by Jesus

Join us on Wednesday’s from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. beginning September 11th, 2019 until October 16th, 2019

In this wise, entertaining, and educational book, Amy-Jill Levine offers a fresh, timely reinterpretation of Jesus’ narratives. She analyzes the “problems with parables”, taking readers back in time to understand how their original Jewish audience understood them. Levine reveals the parables’ connections to first-century economic and agricultural life, social customs and morality, Jewish scriptures and Roman culture. With this revitalized understanding, she interprets these moving stories for the contemporary reader, showing how the parables are not just about Jesus, but are also about us – and when read rightly, still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.
