Stephen KatzAbout Stephen Katz:

Stephen's grandparents immigrated to America from Eastern Europe in the early 20th century, ultimately settling in the Chicago area. As a boy, Stephen enjoyed sports and excelled in school. In his high school years he began to question the values he had been raised with, which and instead of focusing on academics, began to spend all his time playing guitar and harmonica. Over the next few years he searched for answers to his many questions about life, eventually becoming a follower of Yeshua. You can read his testimony below.

Three weeks after receiving his bachelor's degree in social work from the University of Illinois, he got married and began to work with abused and neglected youth in a residential treatment center in Chicago (taking one year out to live on a kibbutz in Israel). He received his master's degree in social work from the University of Illinois in 1984. He and his young family attended a messianic congregation for 13 years, where Stephen served as the worship leader. 

In 1989, Stephen began missionary training with Jews for Jesus and now serves as North American Director, also supervising the work in Brazil. Laura and he have four children, three of whom are married. He received a master's degree in intercultural and Jewish studies from Fuller Theological Seminary in 1997.

Stephen is known to be a warm-hearted and engaging teacher and a good listener.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Authentic Last Supper Exhibit

The Authentic Last Supper Exhibit
Our new exhibit is opening just in time for the Passover/Easter season that focuses on the events of the final hours of Jesus' life and His message to His disciples and us all. The Authentic Last Supper exhibit features a restored Upper Room complete with a Roman-Judean triclinium table set with the type of vessels that would have been at the original Last Supper. These 54 vessels are genuine first-century Herodian period artifacts. Also on display as a window view from the Upper Room is a painting of the Temple Mount on the eve of the Passover. Also included in the exhibit are genuine artifacts representing the events surrounding the Last Supper such as 30 pieces of silver, crucifixion nails, a Roman spear point, and an alabaster oil jar. It is hoped that those viewing this exhibit will enter into the reality of the Passover/Easter events and strengthen their faith through an understanding of the authentic setting of the Gospel account.

Last Supper Temple PaintingThe faux window looks out on a view of the lower western city of Jerusalem and the Herodian Second Temple Mount from the perspective of the setting of the original Upper Room used by Jesus and His disciples in the upper city. The painting of this first-century scene was executed by Liberty University Studio and Digital Arts student, Miss Christine Kidd. Miss Kidd (a native of Scottsville, Va.) is a Studio Art major with a minor in Graphic Design. Following her graduation this May, she plans to continue pursuing her passion for traditional representational art.

The exhibit will re-open soon at our new location at the Jerry Falwell Library for individual viewing from 10AM-4:30PM daily and for groups by special appointment.
