Jesus wasn't a Christian. Jesus lived and died as a Jew. Or did he? How do these questions impact our personal faith and our relationships with others of differing traditions? How can understanding more about the “Jewish” identity of Jesus help us better understand his message in the twenty-first century?
In this course, faith leaders from both the Jewish and Christian traditions will shed light on Jesus and his relationship to the Judaisms of his day and ours, opening new paths to use that learning for dialogue and mutual respect. Learn how faithful believers can experience the traditions of others, appreciating without appropriating. Bring your questions, and explore with others what it means to recognize and reclaim the Jewishness of Jesus — and how it might change us.
Coordinated by Ms. Susan G. Sevier, VTS Academic Resource Center Instructor (MA, VTS, 2014, and MA in Judaica, University of Missouri – Kansas City, 1982).
