Fall 2022

Adult Education 

Jesus: A Jewish Storyteller
Sundays through October 9 at 10:30 a.m.
Led by Dr. Paul Bischoff

This 4-week class positions Jesus as an itinerant Second Temple rabbi whose Hebraic teaching method used parables to convey the Gospel. He did so in the tradition of a parabolic teaching device derived from rabbinic tradition and the Old Testament. Historic views of Jesus are far more domesticated than he really was when he taught. His stories were provocative, edgy, and at times shocking. Jesus’ main purpose was not to present moralistic lessons that explain theology, but rather to convey the kingdom of God. 

Join Us! 

Men’s Winter Breakfast

7:00-8:00 a.m. in Stewart Hall
