UK-Netherlands Seminar Tour, June 9-21, 2018

I’m excited that I’ve been invited to speak in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands this summer.

I’ll be giving several seminars and talks about my new book, Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus (Baker, 2018). A prominent theme will be how Christians can be equipped to read the Bible more authentically by grasping its Jewish cultural context.

I will be in the UK between June 7-17, and the Netherlands between June 18-21.


United Kingdom:


First, I’ll be giving a day-long workshop at Oak Tree Anglican Fellowship, in Acton, London. Here are details:


Through the Eyes of Jesus

The Gospel as Jesus preached makes more sense when we hear it through first-century Jewish ears. Come hear Lois Tverberg speak on Jesus words through first-century Middle Eastern cultural eyes. A day to gather, worship and hear God’s word together.

Saturday, June 9, 9:30 AM – 3 PM
Oak Tree Anglican Fellowship
216 High Street
London, W3 9NX

(As part of Oak Tree Anglican Fellowship’s “Blessed to be a Blessing” this event is completely free and open to all. Please book a ticket at this link and encourage others to book in as we are expecting tickets to go quickly. Doors open at 9:15am. There is limited local metered parking around, please use public transport where possible.)


I will also be speaking at the Sunday afternoon service of Oak Tree Fellowship on June 10th at 4:30 PM (16:30).

Why the Netherlands, you might ask?

Because all of my books have been translated and are available in Dutch. (See this blog post for more details).

Uitgeverij Toetssteen, the publisher and translator, is sponsoring my visit. I’m very much looking forward to meeting their readers there.

One of the things we will be doing is celebrating the release of the Dutch translation of my newest book, Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus. Here is a preview of the cover.
