The Bible With and Without Jesus – How Jews & Christians Read the Same Stories Differently
Although Jews and Christians share common books – the Jewish Tanakh and the Christian Old Testament – we read our shared stories in different ways. Differences in translation, punctuation, definitions, theology, emphasis and even canonical order all lead to differences in community self-definition.
Join us when Prof. Marc Zvi Brettler and Dr. Amy-Jill Levine, co-authors of The Bible With and Without Jesus, will discuss what prompts these differences, and what they suggest about Jewish and Christian priorities, and how, with knowledge of history and theology, we can today better appreciate each other’s interpretations.
