Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus: Chapter 8, 9 & 10

Why did Peter offer to build "shelters" at the Transfiguration? In this supplement to Chapters 8, 9, and 10, see an oil press like the one from the Garden of Gethsemane, recall God's redemption in each of the seven Jewish feasts, and listen to a shofar blast. We also see a reenactment of a first-century Passover meal and get a glimpse of Bedouin hospitality.

“Mary…sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said” (Luke 10:39). Join us in this 5-week study of Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus by Ann Spangler and Lois Tverberg, as we learn about the Jewishness of Jesus in a way that will enrich your Christian faith. By studying the Jewish roots of the Christian faith, we will “retune our hearing and thinking” so that we can understand Jesus better and hear him “with the ears of a first-century disciple,” just like Mary did.
