Sabeel is organizing Bible study groups to study Jesus’ message in the parables. This will be a 5 year project and will include local Christian communities in both Israel and Palestine. The purpose of these studies is 5-fold: 1) To provide local Christian communities with a structure to read and study the Bible. 2) To enable local Christian communities to connect their faith with current realities. 3) To provide opportunities for input into the ongoing development of Palestinian Liberation Theology. 4) To share questions that will help open the Scriptures so that they can be applied to daily life. 5) To strengthen the local Christian community as it works towards restorative justice, inclusivity and non-violence
