Text and Context Session 2: Jesus the Workman
Author: Desi Maxwell

About the Author
Desi grew up in Co. Antrim, N. Ireland. After studies at the University of Ulster, then Westminster and Princeton theological Seminaries, he entered pastoral ministry for seven years: three in Canada, followed by four in Belfast.
For the next twenty years he lectured at Belfast Bible College (and remains a senior teaching fellow), before seeking to bring the classroom to the living room through “Xplorations”, the ministry he co-founded and directs with his wife Heather.
He has studied at Dwight Pryor’s Haverim Schools of Discipleship and comes with his warm recommendation as a gifted teacher with his own unique presentation and introduction to Jesus in His Jewish world.
