I recently posted a reflection on Isaiah 32, which reveals a gorgeous vision of what Christ’s messianic kingdom will be like. Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, And ministers shall govern with justice; Every one of them shall be like a refuge from gales, A shelter from rainstorms; Like brooks of water in a […]
Videos from “The Torah Revolution” Seminar
Hello friends! Last weekend I got to give a new lecture series in Dayton, Ohio during the weekend of the Sukkot Feast celebration at the Church of Messiah. I shared some surprising good news from secular writers about the influence of Christianity on the world. And then point out that much of our influence actually […]
What Lois has Spent the Past Six Months Working On
Many of you will remember last fall that I wrote a post called “Reading the Bible Through Ancient Eyes.” It was about hosting an Old Testament scholar from Uganda, Rev. Dr. Milly Erema, in my home and taking her to the Society of Biblical Literature meeting, where she impressed the scholars at an Old Testament […]
Tire Treads and Jesus
Sometimes the Lord uses quirky, creative ways to get the word out! Check out this note that a reader sent to me just a couple days ago: I wanted to share a testimony with you. I have a copy of your Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus book. I didn’t purchase it. It wasn’t given to […]
Lois, What’s the difference between your “Rabbi Jesus” books?

Reading the Bible through Ancient Eyes (+ Update 1/24/22)
For the past couple months, I’ve had a remarkable Bible scholar staying at my house. Milly Erema has been teaching Old Testament for the past 20 years at Uganda Christian University. You’ve actually heard me quote her several times in my books, along with other Africans and Asians who I consult for their non-Western perspective.
Join me at the Narkis Bible Study online (+ update 1/27/22)
What’s the significance of the fact that the woman lost a drachma (not a denarius) in the Parable of the Lost Coin? Might Jesus have had something in mind from the Scriptures he read? Find out more by watching an informal talk I gave recently for the Bible study at Narkis Church in Jerusalem. A […]
Celebrating a New Website Theme
Hooray! The Our Rabbi Jesus website has a new theme! The content of the site is still the same and all the articles and posts are still there. But now it’s more readable on cell phones and it’s easier to find things. The “Events” page is now the “Speaking” page and it’s had some updates. […]
Interview: Learning from Rabbi Jesus, with the Israel Bible Center
Recently, I was interviewed by Dr. Yeshaya Gruber as a part of the Israel Bible Center’s Roundtable Talk series. Dr. Gruber and I had a lively discussion on topics that may interest many. There are many world-class scholars in this series. I’m humbled to be included among them. The Israel Bible Center site also has […]
Meet Madalyn, Lois’ Mesharet (Assistant)
Meet my new mesharet, Madalyn Buursma. Moses had Joshua as his “mesharet.” Elijah had Elisha as his “mesharet.” The word is translated as “assistant,” but the relationship was an ancient model for how disciples studied with rabbinic teachers. Madalyn recently graduated from Calvin College with an English major and she’s aiming for a career in […]
