Final wrap

Thanks to all the study group members for a wonderful experience.  Your varied backgrounds made for terrific discussions and your enthusiasm was a delight.

In case anyone would like a recommendation for further exploration of our subject, I (and others) have found Bruce Chilton’s Rabbi Jesus to be a fascinating and imaginative exploration of several important questions concerning Jesus in the form of a “biography”; for example, Chilton provides a mind-blowing (even if completely speculative) motivation for the Last Supper.
