A Fun “Reading Paul” Story

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

My mother-in-law (still an Energizer bunny at almost 81) just returned from a 10-day Mediterranean cruise that included Rome, Rhodes, Ephesus, Athens, Capri, Santorini, etc. While eating lunch with her excursion-mates near Ephesus, she discovered that one young woman on the trip was a rabbinical student in the U.S. My mother-in-law said to her, “Paul really made a huge impact.” The rabbinical student agreed, adding that she was currently taking a course on Paul. My mother-in-law responded, “Oh, my son-in-law writes books about Paul.” “Really?” replied the rabbinical student. “What’s his name?” When my mother-in-law told her, she said, “Oh, we’re reading his book Reading Paul in my course!”

A rabbinical student!
