Last week I traveled to Shanghai, China for a wonderful vacation with purpose. A part from being able to see how China has grown and experience beautiful hospitality from my friends in Shanghai, I led a mini conference on the Jewish Background of the New Testament for a network of leaders of house church movement. My guest lectures were extremely well received. (Though for most present many concepts I taught were completely new).
It was a very profitable time and much has been accomplished. In addition to a wonderful outcome of the conference two Chinese Christian publishing houses offered to translate and publish my upcoming book – “The Jewish Gospel of John: Discovering Jesus, King of All Israel”.
I am now in Beijing (the capital city) where we (I took one of my sons to accompany me on this journey) enjoy 3 days of touring and actual vacation with my friends and hosts here! Here are are some pictures to visualize the events. First picture is taken at the end of the conference and second picture is taken few days ago still in Shanghai, where I gave a guest lecture at a local seminary.
