Like you, I’ve heard my share of Bible stories. Born on Palm Sunday and in the church nursery by Easter, I’ve been around Christianity for my entire life, and I’ve heard it all. At least that’s what I thought.
In May of 2008, I spent two weeks in Israel, watching Scripture come alive by seeing it in its historic, geographic, religious, and cultural context. I came back with an obsession: to understand how the Church of the First Century would have interpreted Jesus’ words. Since then, I’ve described myself as “a ruined man who wouldn’t want it any other way.”
This obsession eventually led me to becoming the Vice President of Field Operations for Promise Keepers and One Message. I’ve spoken before thousands across the globe, and I’m overwhelmed to think about what God has done.
Now, I’m on a mission to provoke the “people in the pews” to reengage with the Scriptures. Through my teaching and writing, I’m helping Christians around the world become excited about reading the Bible for themselves.
I want to help YOU, too!
May you be covered in the dust of your Rabbi – Jesus,
