PATRON Membership

The research of the Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research (JSSR) has the capability to change the way Jesus is viewed and taught at the University level. Over the past forty years, assorted members of JSSR have gathered in Jerusalem examining individual periscopes of the Synoptic Gospels piecing together the linguistic, cultural, historical matrix of Jesus. In 2006, JSSR published their first collective work, "Jesus' Last Week". In 2012, JSSR will be publishing its second volume, "The Linguistic Environment of the Second Temple Period." Patron membership is a way for those who believe in our work to help support our endeavors.

Do I have to have a PayPal account?
NO! You are not required to have a PayPal account. You can pay online with your credit card or check. You will be prompted if you would like to create one, but you may decline with no implications.

What credit cards are accepted?
American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa.

Why does JSSR use for their credit card transactions?
Having a website that can accept credit cards over the Internet is very expensive. The cost of a secure site, a credit card merchant account and a payment gateway all add up quickly. In order to save money, we have chosen to utilize PayPal's convenient payment method which only charges us $3.40 on our $100 transaction, a considerable savings.

Can I mail my payment?
    Send your name, address & email address along with a check or money order for $100 to the following address:

                    Jerusalem School of Synoptic Research
                    U.S. Offices
                    P.O. Box 190
                    Poplar Bluff, MO 63902

What will the monies be used for?

  • Jerusalem School Scholars attendance of academic conferences like the Society of Biblical Literature

  • Finalization of Jerusalem Studies in the Synoptic Gospels Volume 1.

  • Research & Editing of Jerusalem Studies in the Synoptic Gospels Volume 2

  • Academic Speaking tours

  • Annually hosted breakfast & reception at Society of Biblical Literature Congress

What's in it for me?
We've discussed various incentives for our Patrons, but most of our Patrons are more interested in helping out than receiving something in return. That being said, our Patrons will receive a report (at least quarterly) with updates of our organization's successes and set-backs.  As the program develops the benefits of being a Patron will grow as well. Items we've discussed as future enhancements to our Patron program include:

  • occasional conference calls with a JS scholar where you can ask questions and hear real-time feedback

  • availability of autographed copies of JS publications

  • advanced copies of articles being published

Can I advertise for Patron Memberships on my website?
We are grateful for any and all people who will advertise for us on your web site.
