Ervin Budiselić, PhD



I consider myself a happy man because I don’t simply have a “job”, I am living my calling and purpose. I would like for people to understand that the Bible isn’t made up of different stories – it is one unified story. I would like that the Church recognizes and accepts the depth and width that stands behind the well-known saying: “Jesus was a Jew.”
