Important Announcement from Lois (updated Jan 2012)

Shalom everyone –

Our Rabbi Home PageIf you discovered my writing here and are wondering where to find me, my blog is now at Our Rabbi Jesus: His Jewish Life and Teaching ( The site focuses on how understanding the Bible in its original context can shed light on how we live today. The site is a work in progress, but I hope you’ll subscribe to its email list. (My goal has been to send something monthly, but its actually been about once a year.) You can also find updates on the OurRabbiJesus Facebook page. (Click “Like” to stay connected.)

Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi JesusMy main activity right now is actually writing books. In March 2009, Zondervan published Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus (co-authored by Ann Spangler). The book explores the first-century world of rabbis and disciples, festivals, prayers and the Torah, and how restoring Jesus to his Jewish reality sheds light on his life and ministry. For more info and a preview, see this page. (You can get the book from your local bookstore, or online at Amazon, B&N or CBD.)

In February 2012, Zondervan will release the sequel, which I’ve been working on for the past couple years: Walking in the Dust of Rabbi Jesus. There, I ask the next question — what are the implications of Jesus’ Jewish context for how we live as his disciples? I also contemplate some Jewish ideas that deepen our understanding of Jesus’ words and yield practical insights for following him today. For more info and several excerpts, see this page. Available soon at bookstores, or online at Amazon, B&N, or CBD.

En-Gedi Home PageIf you want to read some of my earlier writing, see This is the En-Gedi Resource Center, an educational ministry I founded with Bruce Okkema in 2001. For six years we organized seminars and published books and audio/video materials. I’ve been writing independently for the past five years, but you can find many of my earlier articles there, as well as my first book, Listening to the Language of the Bible.

I do also travel and speak. If you’re interested in where I’ll be or inviting me, check out my calendar here.

Blessings –

Lois Tverberg

  1. Fantastic! I love your writings. I also use engedi as a resource hub for study and understanding. I loved the “getting dusty” stuff and wished more would come. I am going to check out your site now. Also get a copy of you book! Thanks for all you are doing to help us understand the Jesus we follow.
