9 AM Sunday Bible Study – “Jesus: First Century Rabbi”
Date(s) - 04/29/2018 - 05/13/2018
9:00 am - 10:00 am
The 9 am Sunday Morning Bible Study group presents a series titled Jesus: First Century Rabbi. Everyone is invited to take part.
Jesus lived and died as a Torah-observant Jew who lived and worked among many other great teachers in his era. Research has proven that he was devoted to his Jewish practices, and was part of the emerging movement of early rabbis that would eventually become what we call “rabbinic Judaism.” We will gain insight into the first century world of Judaism and the thoroughly Jewish
roots of Jesus’ teachings.
This class will be lead by Rabbi Debra Smith (Reb Deb)
