Talbot to Speak at CALLED Convention
Elizabeth Talbot, Ph.D., Speaker/Director for the Jesus 101 Biblical Institute, has been selected to speak at the general session of the Pastors Experience, a gathering of pastors and their families, in Austin Texas, June 28-July 1, 2015. Talbot is known for her brilliant exegetical preaching and for illustrating the metaphors of scripture with 3D visual object lessons (as well as her occasional ‘woo hoo!’). Talbot is one of dozens of confirmed speakers for the convention who will bring their best to the pastors of the NAD.

After several years working in radio and TV under the auspices of Voice of Prophecy and Faith for Today, Elizabeth now leads the Jesus 101 media ministry of the NAD designed to offer in-depth Christ centered biblical studies resources.

Elizabeth is regularly featured in Hope Channel and Esperanza TV, 3ABN Latino, LLBN, ROKU (Jesus 101 channel), as well as in several international TV channels and other social media venues, as well as radio stations throughout the US and Canada; for additional information, go to the ministry’s website: For daily devotionals, biblical studies, audio books, and much more, download the JESUS 101 app for Apple and Android.

Among other articles and booklets, Elizabeth authored “Matthew: Prophecy Fulfilled,” “John: God Became Flesh,” “Luke: Salvation for All,” “Mark: Good News,” “Revelation: the Fifth Gospel,” “Amazing Grace Bible study course,” and “Surprised by Love” published by Pacific Press.

Elizabeth Viera Talbot was born in Argentina to the home of Adventist missionaries. Since her early childhood her parents instilled in her the love of Jesus and she always envisioned preaching and teaching as she gathered her dolls as an audience.  After completing her Bachelors in music education, Elizabeth went on to work in the business world for many years in the accounting and managing departments. She earned a Master’s degree in Organizational Behavior at that time. During this period of approx. 15 years, she volunteered as a part-time youth pastor.

She was invited by the Seventh-day Adventist church to become a full-time pastor which she gladly accepted as a call from God. She became a young adults/young families’ pastor and evangelist while earning her Master’s degree in Biblical studies and subsequent Ph.D. She has enjoyed evangelism in many forms. Eventually she became a senior pastor for several years and an adjunct Biblical Studies Professor.

Elizabeth’s main identity is her passion about the good news of Jesus Christ:  “It’s like fire in my bones” she says, and she means it!
