Adult Education 5-part Series:  Supper & Study

Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi


Thursday evenings: Feb. 8, 15, 22, 29th & Mar 7th from 6:30pm – 8:00pm


This 5 part series is a joint series between Marin Lutheran Church and Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church at 9 Shepherd Way in Tiburon.  We will begin with a light dinner and then the study.

Beginning Thursday, February 8th at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Tiburon, explore some of Jesus’ familiar narratives in SHORT STORIES BY JESUS:  The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi with Amy-Jill Levine, Professor of New Testament studies and Bible study author.

In this study based on Short Stories by Jesus, Amy-Jill Levine analyzes the “problem with parables” taking us back in time to understand how the original Jewish audience heard the stories.  With this revitalized understanding, she interprets these moving stories for us contemporary readers, showing how the parables are not just about Jesus, but are also about us – and they still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later!
Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church is at 9 Shepherd Way, Tiburon.  The classes run 5 Thursday evenings:  February 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th and March 7th from 6:30pm to 8:00 pm.

Dates: February. 8, 15, 22, 29th and March 7th
Time: 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Place: Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, 9 Shepherd Way, Tiburon
