We work with scholars whose language and cultural expertise helps us better understand Jesus and his early followers in their divinely-inspired context (Mark 1:15). The lessons learned there ground us deeper in biblical faith and propel us into our troubled world with bold deeds of lovingkindness. Meet James Whitman of JC Studies, and discover what this Haverim School of Discipleship school has to offer you, for such a time as this.

Meet Lois Tverberg, educator and author of Reading the Bible with Rabbi Jesus (2018), Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus (2012), Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus (2009), and Listening to the Language of the Bible (2004).
Lois Tverberg is a superb, scholarly guide. She immerses us in Jesus’ Jewish context so that our deepened comprehension of Jesus’ words can impel us to love God more fully and richly.
In her delightful style, Lois Tverberg engagingly leads us across cultures to begin to envision a different worldview, a worldview more consistent with the world of most of Scripture. In so doing, she brings alive texts of Scripture from the inside.
Through her insights, Lois has deepened my understanding of the faith of Jesus and encouraged me to ‘walk as Jesus walked.'
