Dr. Barbara Rossing
Dr. Barbara Rossing, professor of New Testament at the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago, leads Bible Studies on the theme of "Give Us Today Our Daily Bread" at the 2011 Rocky Mountain Synod Assembly.

Dr. Barbara Rossing: Bible Study #1
Jesus teaches his disciples to break bread with others, a kingdom behavior that welcomes all people to the banquet.  In the Lord’s Prayer Jesus teaches “us,” not “me,” to ask for daily bread.

Dr. Barbara Rossing: Bible Study #2
Dr. Rossing responded to the news of the day regarding Harold Camping’s prediction that the following week, Jesus would return to earth on Saturday, May 21, 2011, at 6 p.m.

Although Jesus “will come again to judge the living and the dead,” scripture comes to life not in predictions and time lines but in stories of daily bread shared with all God’s children, not in fear and judgment, but in love and the promise of healing.

Dr. Barbara Rossing: Bible Study #3
Dr. Rossing believes God calls us as a church to face the future with hopeful determination in this “kairos,” this urgent moment of environmental struggle. “Jesus sees that our planet is ill and Jesus wants to heal us.” She urges us to choose life in this moment that really matters—to live with a new vision of an abundant future of daily bread for all the earth.
