“Short Stories by Jesus”
June 16 – July 21 9:00 A.M.
Explore a fresh and timely interpretation of Jesus’ most popular teaching parables. Jesus was a skilled storyteller and perceptive teacher who used parables from everyday life to effectively convey his message and meaning. In this Bible study based on her “Short Stories by Jesus”, Amy-Jill Levine analyzes some “problems with parables” taking readers back in time to understand how their original Jewish audience understood them. 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 still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.
