Exploring Jewish New Testament Scholarship

1 October 2021 - 2 December 2021
00:00 - 00:00


A recent development in New Testament studies has been the involvement of Jewish scholars. They bring new insights and overturn longstanding Christian assumptions about Jesus’ life and Paul’s ministry. We will focus on the work of four such scholars: Geza Vermes, Amy-Jill Levine, Paula Fredriksen and Adele Reinhartz. Participants will be given an article to read for each session, along with suggestions of online videos to watch. They will be asked to share some preliminary thoughts through an online discussion forum, before meeting for a fortnightly Zoom seminar.

Live sessions are fortnightly at 16:00-17:15 (UK time) on Thursday 14 October, Thursday 28 October, Thursday 11 November and Thursday 25 November.
