Torah Studies for Christians

with Rev. George Balasko 

Co-sponsored by Rabbi Joseph P. Schonberger,

Spiritual leader of Temple El Emeth in Youngstown, Ohio

Topic of discussion: Model Passover

This Bible education series is an opportunity for Christians to reflect on the Scriptures using video resources from various Scripture scholars. Working closely with the biblical text, we will explore the methods and insights of the sages of the Jewish tradition, their love for Torah, their eye for detail, their incisive questions, debates, and creative storytelling (midrash). In this way we will deepen our appreciation of a Torah tradition that is at the core of Jewish life, which formed Jesus as a Jew, and which is the root of our biblical heritage as Christians. Join us in this fascinating journey of biblical and spiritual enrichment.
