Thank you to everyone who has written to discuss our mutual concerns about the young people of today, the under-30, "unaffiliated" Millennial generation. In this open letter I have linked to studies that describe how both unaffiliated and Protestant young people are technically savvy and self-focused, desiring access to Heaven but unwilling to allow God to change their lives in the present. Other studies offer more hope and describe the many ways that online interactive content already reaches this generation.
It is my hope that the e-book on this web site, The Parable of the Messiah Scrolls, can be one means of giving younger millennial and unaffiliated readers an opportunity to see what Christianity and the understanding of Heaven was like in the first century AD, to judge for themselves the claims of Jesus without pressure or guilt.

Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, please join me in editorial additions, in your annotations, in the discussion boards, in the preparation of public domain study materials, working in hope as we bring fresh images of the developing first century Christian communities into the modern day.
With gratitude for your interest,
