Event Description

Our Lenten series is Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi.

Series runs Wednesdays in Lent from 6:30 - 7:45 pm:
Apr 3 & Apr 10

In Short Stories by Jesus, the Author analyzes these “problems with parables,” taking readers back in time to understand how their original Jewish audience understood them. Amy-Jill Levine reveals the parables’ connections to first-century economic and agricultural life, social customs and morality, Jewish scriptures and Roman culture. With this revitalized understanding, she interprets these moving stories for the contemporary reader, showing how the parables are not just about Jesus, but are also about us—and when read rightly, still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.
