I’ll be leading a day-long seminar, with three talks:

Jesus, Our Rabbi and Lord:  What difference does it make that Jesus was Jewish? Why is it important for us to know about? We’ll look at how his first-century Jewish context sheds light on his ministry and messianic claims.

Shema! Hearing Jesus through a Disciple’s Ears: The two greatest commands, to love God and love neighbor, actually come from the Torah, and were discussed by other teachers of the day. Looking more deeply at their context unlocks new meaning.

Unlocking Jesus’ Jewish Wisdom: We’ll look at one of Jesus’ more difficult sayings, about “do not judge,” in the light of the wider rabbinic conversation going on. We’ll see that it yields practical application for life today.

$15 per person, $25 per couple which includes lunch. Child care will be provided. Contact Deanna Gruszka at dgruszka (at) or 231.780.4784 to sign up.
