Jesus the Jew, Part 3: Here’s Spit In Your Eye

Hosted By: Orange County Community Scholar Program (CSP)

Consider the historical works of the Jewish general and eventually traitor to Rome, Flavius Josephus, and later rabbinic documents to flesh out what Jesus’ world looked like, intellectually, socially and spiritually. You are invited to leave behind your pre-conceived notions of the person of Jesus and to understand him against the backdrop of the Jewish environment of Roman-occupied Judea/Palestine of the first century. How was an indigenously and intrinsically Jewish story transformed
into a Graeco-Roman Christian, and, eventually, a “universal” one?
What was the role of healing, charisma, magic and what we would call psychology in the miraculous deeds of Jesus? Were Jesus’ deeds unique?”
