Jesus, Judaism, and Jewish-Christian Relations with Dr. Amy Jill Levine
Jesus and his first followers were Jews, thoroughly grounded in Jewish Scripture, Jewish ethics and theology, and Jewish hopes. To understand the New Testament is thus to recover Jewish history. Yet ignorance of this history sometimes leads to New Testament readings that create or reinforce anti-Jewish views. How might understanding the New Testament in its historical context not only provide a corrective to anti-Jewish teaching but also offer a productive approach to Jewish-Christian relations?
Dr. Amy Jill Levine is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Divinity School and College of Arts and Science at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.
