“The Continuing Quest for Insights into Jesus of Nazareth:
His Words, His Wisdom, His World”
(A conference in Jerusalem celebrating the memory of David Flusser, Robert Lindsey and Shmuel Safrai)
June 19-21, 2006
Register now to attend a unique conference in Jerusalem featuring internationally renowned Jewish and Christian scholars, including three eminent biblical archaeologists: Ronny Reich, Gabriel Barkay and Hanan Eshel. Reich will report on the recently discovered Pool of Siloam, which he is now uncovering. (All archaeological talks will be accompanied by colorful slides.)
The exciting three-day conference will be held at the beautiful Ramat Rachel Hotel and Congress Center with its breathtaking view of the Judean Desert and the Mountains of Moab. You will have an opportunity for study and fellowship with participants from Israel and around the world.
Consider this your personal invitation to attend “Jerusalem Perspective 2006.” During three exciting days you will learn from students of the late David Flusser, Shmuel Safrai and Robert Lindsey. Speakers will include members of the Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research and Lenore Mullican, one of Lindsey’s daughters. We also will be honored by the presence of representatives from the Flusser and Safrai families, as well as other Israelis.
