The Stories of the Jewish Christ: Jewish Gospels
To read the New Testament as a Jewish text one must be familiar with the techniques of Jewish literary traditions. This mini-course challenges students to consider the New Testament as a text communicating genuinely Jewish thoughts and ideas using Jewish linguistic expressions.
Consider the thought-language of the gospels in light of Hebraisms and Aramaisms. Explore the Jewish mystical and apocalyptic ideas of the Second Temple era as a foundation of diverse Jewish thought about God’s nature. Trace the New Testament ideas about God’s abode and Messiah that predate the first century. Enroll now to continue this exciting journey!
