Event Details

Dramatizing Paul of Tarsus: Christian and Jewish Responses to PAULUS

In anticipation of the world premiere of Motti Lerner's PAULUS, an artistic interpretation of the latter years of Paul of Tarsus as imagined through a psychological lens, join Silk Road Rising for a conversation with scholars, clergy, and the playwright

Held in the sanctuary at the First United Methodist Church at The Chicago Temple, this panel will be an interfaith conversation among Jews and Christians to place the figure of Paul within their respective traditions.

In PAULUS, a compassionate but wary 62-year-old Jesus and an egomaniacal Emperor Nero torment the ailing psyche of the Apostle Paul as he struggles to universalize monotheism against fierce opposition from a Jewish religious establishment threatened with spiritual extinction. A scene from PAULUS will be performed as part of the evening’s program.

Moderated by Cheryl Hamada, WTTW.

Panelists include: 
Motti Lerner, playwright
Margaret M. Mitchell, Dean of The University of Chicago Divinity School
Nicholas Patricca, playwright and Professor Emeritus at Loyola University, Chicago
Steven Philp, M.Div candidate at The University of Chicago Divinity School and Rabbinical student
Rabbi David Levinsky, Chicago Sinai Congregation

With welcoming remarks from Reverend Philip L. Blackwell, Senior Minister at the First United Methodist Church at the Chicago Temple, and Jamil Khoury, Founding Artistic Director of Silk Road Rising.

Silk Road Rising welcomes all people of any or no faith for a respectful and dynamic conversation about PAULUS. The panel is free to attend and open to the public. Join us!
