about bible study

"Do you understand what you are reading?" That was the question Philip the Apostle asked a man from Ethiopia who was riding in a chariot on the desert road leading from Jerusalem toward the Mediterranean Sea. The man was the finance minister of Ethiopia, but he had been in Jerusalem for Pentecost and somehow obtained a copy of Isaiah the Prophet. The man's answer? "How can I [understand it] unless someone explains it to me?" --Acts 8: 30-31

The jewishness of jesus

By Rabbi evan moffic

Mondays | 7:00 - 8:00 pm


What would happen if you were to stop on the street and ask ten people, "Who started Christianity?" You probably hear people give you the same quick response: Jesus.

But those ten people would be wrong.  Jesus wasn't a Christian. Jesus lived and died as a Jew. Understanding the Jewishness of Jesus is the secret to knowing him better and understanding his message in the twenty-first century.


Walking through Jesus' life from birth to death, Rabbi Evan Moffic serves as a tour guide to give Christians a new way to look at familiar teachings and practices that are rooted in the Jewish faith and can illuminate our lives today. Among the critically acclaimed highlights of this book, Rabbi Moffic

  • Gives fresh insight on how Jesus' contemporaries understood him
  • Explores how Jesus' Jewishness shaped him
  • Offers a compelling new perspective on the Lord's Prayer that will forever change the way you experience these powerful words
  • Provides renewed appreciation for Jesus' miracles.

In encountering Rabbi Jesus and understanding his Jewish heritage, you will see Jesus differently, gain a better understanding of his message, and enrich your own faith. 

Bible Study is for Everyone

The Bible is an incredible book of history and facts that proves that there is a God that created all things.  Most important of all, the Bible is the Word of God. But it can be hard to read and difficult to understand.  The Pastor's Bible Study helps us understand the people who wrote the scriptures and the societal influences during that time in history.  The discussion challenges our thinking and asks probing questions that transform us into "budding theologians" as we explore the scriptures more deeply.
