DATE WEDNESDAY, MAY 3, 2017
PRESENTING: "JESUS, THE JEWISH STORYTELLER: OF PEARLS AND PRODIGALS "
Join Dr. Amy-Jill Levine for a fascinating and thought-provoking talk. Jesus was a skilled storyteller who used examples from everyday life to speak about economics and politics, family values and social concerns, justice and compassion. But, removed from their historic setting in first-century Galilee and Judea, contemporary interpretations of Jesus’s parables may lose their original provocation and the genius of his teaching. Levine will discuss the historical context of his teachings, in particular Judaism and the Jewish scriptures that shaped his stories.
