Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus: Chapters 5, 6, and 7

What does Hannah have to do with Jesus' prayer life? In this supplement to Chapters 5, 6, and 7, see ancient tefillin (phylacteries) from the caves at Qumran, hear the Shema in it's original Hebrew, and let this catchy (and Biblical) song from the musical Godspell help you to Bless the Lord! We also get a glimpse of Jewish Bible study habits, prayers, and blessings, including the Shema and Amidah.

“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.
