Jesus knew how to tell a story. He knew that in order to get his message across he needed to relate to the people who gathered to listen—first century Jews—who lived in a very different world than the one in which we live today. In Short Stories by Jesus, author Amy-Jill Levine takes you back in time and explains how original audiences understood Jesus’ parables. You’ll learn how new interpretations of the parables continue to challenge and provoke contemporary readers two thousand years later.
The study features Amy-Jill Levine offering a fresh, timely reinterpretation of Jesus’ narratives. The video segments are approximately 10–12 minutes each (with closed captioning) and, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal six-week group study.
