Our Vision:

The Galilean Fellows is a community of scholars engaging the culture and thought of the contemporary world with Jesus and the Scriptures.

I will keep watch to see what [the LORD] will say to me… Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so that a runner may read it. For there is still a vision…”
– the Hebrew prophet Habakkuk 2:1-3

Our Mission:

Engage the culture and thought
of the contemporary world
with Jesus and the Scriptures –

by thinking,
teaching, and
as a community of biblical thought,

and by equipping followers of Jesus
with creative understanding.

Our Focus:

The Horizon of the Kingdom

Now when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee. He left Nazareth and made his home in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, so that what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled:

“Land of Zebulun, land of Naphtali,
on the road by the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—
the people who sat in darkness
have seen a great light,
and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death
light has dawned.”

From that time Jesus began to proclaim, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”

– Matthew 4:12-17 (NRSV)

When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”

– Luke 4:16-21 (NRSV)

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them,

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name
of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.
And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

– Matt 28:16-20 (NRSV)
