Nationally known author and Bible scholar, Lois Tverberg, will lead a Saturday workshop at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church on February 24. By helping readers grasp the perspective of Jesus’ first listeners, Lois Tverberg equips them to read the Bible in ways that will deepen their understanding and enrich their lives.

This will be Tverberg’s first trip to Minnesota to present material from her latest book, “Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus: How a Jewish Perspective Can Transform Your Understanding of Scripture.”  Lois will discuss how Jesus preached and made bold claims to be the promised Messiah in a very Jewish way, guiding participants in a journey back in time, sharing insights as if sitting with Jesus as one of his disciples.

The workshop is Saturday, February 24 from 8:30 - 12:00 pm. The $20 fee includes a continental breakfast. For an additional $10 fee, an optional lunch and Q & A session with the speaker is available from 12:15 – 1:00 pm. For more information and to register, click here.

Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church is located at 12650 Johnny Cake Ridge Road in Apple Valley.
