A Rabbi Reads the New Testament

Sunday mornings on Zoom:  January 17, 31; February 14, 21, 28; March 7, 14 (No class on January 24 and February 7), 10:00-11:30 am

What is the NT? What kind of Jew was Jesus? Was the last supper a seder? Why are Jesus’ enemies so conspiculously termed “the Jews”? And other questions you were always afraid to ask.

There is no charge. All are welcome. 

Recommended text:  Amy-Jill Levine and Marc Zvi Brettler, eds., The Jewish Annotated New Testament (the 2nd edition of 2017 is best). The commentary and explanatory essays are excellent. Beware: there are some reports that the Kindle version has technical problems. 

Or bring a copy of the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV), as in the New Oxford Annotated Bible: An Ecumenical Study Bible (2018) or Harper Collins Study Bible (many editions).
