Shalom, everyone –
If you’ve been checking this website, you’ll see that it is a work in progress. I have plans for some nice reading lists of my favorite books, and many links and articles and other things. The site is coming along, but takes a while. The area where I’ve worked the most is the “Articles” section. I’ve recently posted the following:
Can we call Jesus “Rabbi”? – Should people be calling Jesus a “rabbi” or is that a term from a later period? Here I’ve done some research on the use of the word in the gospels and early Jewish documents. If you’ve scratched your head over the issue, this will be a helpful article for you. (It’s been revised slightly from when I first wrote it.)
Under the Passover Moon – An excerpt from Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus describing how experiencing a simple Passover Seder caused me to rethink my entire picture of Jesus’ last week. A follow-up comment asks about what evening they ate the Last Supper, and do we really know that it was a Passover meal? I’m going to follow up on this soon. Keep checking.
Here’s one more article that shows my biology professor background:
Learning to Think in Three Dimensions It’s a common Jewish habit to say, “On the one hand…but on the other hand…” and go back and forth between two points of view. Think of Tevya in Fiddler on the Roof. Here I explore the physiology of depth perception, and what wisdom our eyes can teach us as Christians for learning from a Jewish point of view.
Keep coming back! There will be more soon!
