Dean's Women's Bible Study - Summer 2016

This summer, the Dean's Women's Bible Study will read Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi by Amy-Jill Levine. Levine is a professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University. She is an engaging teacher and writer (you might have heard/seen her lecturing here in town or in one of the Great Courses series). The book offers fresh studies of parables we have all heard many times, seeking to show us how to hear these stories “through an imagined set of first-century Jewish ears” (as Jesus’ listeners would have heard them), and how to translate them so that they can be heard still speaking today.
