Jesus Through Jewish Eyes; Instructor: Chris Miller
This class is based on Jesus Through Jewish Eyes, edited by Beatrice Bruteau, available on Amazon). Contributions in the book are written by Rabbis and Jewish scholars. They explore how Jesus Christ is not a part of Jewish thought, but that Jesus the Jew is another matter. Jesus emerged from the Jewish/Greco-Roman milieu of the 1st century Palestine. Jesus is a Christian prophet who was Jewish. Jesus learned and taught Torah and was a wisdom figure. He engaged with the Pharisees in Halachic disputation. And, Jesus was at one time quite another from that figure constructed by the emerging Christian Church of Nicea and Chaldeon. This Jesus has much to teach us all. No proselytizing,.
A fee of $3 for copies is payable at the first class.
