To Understand Jesus, It Is Necessary To Understand Judaism: Amy Jill Levine, Ph D says
Please join us in welcoming guest speaker, Amy Jill Levine, PhD, on Sunday, August 21st at our 10am Sunday Service! Dr. Levine is a renowned theological scholar, currently the University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School. In 2012 she was featured on PBS, discussing her commitment to contextual Jewish history of the New Testament. Her works include The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus (HarperOne), the edited collection,The Historical Jesus in Context (Princeton), and the thirteen-volume edited series, Feminist Companions to the New Testament and Early Christian Writings (Continuum). Her most recent book, Short Stories by Jesus: the Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi (HarperOne), explores Jesus’ most popular parables from a fresh, yet timeless perspective. Dr. Levine is a self-described “Yankee Jewish feminist who teaches in a predominantly Christian divinity school in the buckle of the Bible Belt," Professor Levine combines historical-critical rigor, literary-critical sensitivity, and a frequent dash of humor with a commitment to eliminating anti-Jewish, sexist, and homophobic theologies. We are excited and honored to host Dr. Levine – don’t miss this incredible opportunity to grow intellectually and spiritually!
