Short Stories by Jesus
Explore a fresh and timely interpretation of Jesus’ most popular teaching parables.
Jesus knew how to tell a story. He knew that in order to get his message across he needed to relate to the people who gathered to listen—first century Jews—who lived in a very different world than the one in which we live today. In Short Stories by Jesus, author Amy-Jill Levine takes you back in time and explains how original audiences understood Jesus’ parables. You’ll learn how new interpretations of the parables continue to challenge and provoke contemporary readers two thousand years later. In addition to the book, a Participant Guide, Leader Guide, and DVD are available for this six-week study.
