    Episode 101: When the Words Catch Fire

    Have you ever thought of calling Jesus, "Rabbi"?  Or considered the conversations that would have taken place along the road?  One of our favorite authors, Lois Tverberg has! Not a familiar name to you?  Check out episodes 38 – 45 and episodes 65 – 71. The wisdom found in Lois’ books has helped us to better understand and learn about the heart and character of God as we’ve adopted a new way to read Scripture, looking at the words in the Bible from the perspective of the original audience. 

     

    Now we once again have an opportunity to sit under the remarkable teaching of Lois Tverberg through her latest book, “Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus”, where we’ll continue to see how a Jewish perspective can transform our understanding and that Biblical Context Matters.
