I hope you can join me for a brand new seminar based on my upcoming book on October 15, 2016 in Beavercreek, Ohio (near Dayton.) The workshop will be part of the Feast of Tabernacle weekend event hosted by the Church of Messiah on October 14-15.
I’ll be giving three talks from 9 AM to noon, and then speaking again at the evening service. All of my talks will focus what it means to think hebraically. Here’s an overview:
Being There: Reading the Bible from a Hebraic Perspective
How can we encounter God’s word as a native? How can we hear Jesus as his disciples did? How can we truly be there? We need to open our hearts, and we also need to orient our minds. We need to bridge the cultural gap between our Western world and that of the Eastern, Hebraic setting of the Bible.
This weekend we’ll look at some big-picture ideas and cultural assumptions in the Bible that will surprise modern readers. Among other things, we will look at
“Greek-Brain” vs. “Hebrew-Brain”
A World that is about We, not Me
Where Life Revolves Around the Text
Our Lost Sense of Awe
What passages might they read differently as a result? How can a more Hebraic perspective inform our lives today?
The workshop will be part of the Haverim Lecture Series for the Center for Judaic-Christian Studies. As a fan of the Center for many years, I’m very honored to speak for this excellent organization. There is no cost to attend, but please register at the event page.

My talks will be just a part of an action-packed Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) weekend hosted by the Church of Messiah on Friday & Saturday, October 14-15. See the Church of Messiah Sukkot 2016 page for more information.
The Feast of Tabernacles in Dayton is truly worth a trip. Over the years, I’ve driven 6+ hours myself many times to attend. Glorious worship services on Friday and Saturday evenings bookend a weekend of learning and fellowship.
Hope you can come!
