"Short Stories by Jesus"

Short Stories by Jesus

 

 

Jesus was a skilled storyteller and perceptive teacher who used parables from everyday life to effectively convey his message and meaning.  Life in first-century Palestine was very different from our world today.  Many traditional interpretations of Jesus’ stories ignore this disparity and often allow anti-Semitism and misogyny to color their perspectives.  In this wise, entertaining, and educational book, Amy-Jill Levine offers a fresh, timely reinterpretation of Jesus’ narratives.  Join us on Tuesdays at 1:30 pm as we explore Jesus’ most popular teaching parables, exposing their misinterpretations and making them lively and relevant for us today.
