“Jerusalem Perspective 2006”
Conference DVDs Just Released
Dear Jerusalem Perspective Online readers,
Many of you wrote to me in the months preceding our June conference saying,
I so much wanted to attend the “Jerusalem Perspective 2006” Conference in Jerusalem, but unfortunately, I will not be able to come. Will you be filming the conference? Please let me know if recordings of the conference will be available.
I am happy to announce that the conference WAS filmed. The conference talks and special music are now available! This month is the official debut of the DVD set called:
Insights into Jesus of Nazareth: His Words, His Wisdom, His World
The 8-DVD set contains 14 talks given at the “Jerusalem Perspective 2006” Conference, held in Israel on June 19-21, 2006. These addresses, delivered by acclaimed scholars, place Jesus and his sayings in their first-century Jewish context. The speakers are internationally recognized authorities on archaeology, language and the Jewish culture of Jesus’ day, and their presentations were uniformly excellent. The set contains over 14 hours of video, and includes other conference highlights such as a recently discovered documentary video of pioneer scholars Dr. Robert Lindsey and Professor David Flusser filmed in 1974.
