What happens to us when we die? Do our souls remain alive? Where do they go?
The answers of the ancients still resonate in our hearts and minds today. Jews and Greeks understood some aspects of the underworld and afterlife in strikingly similar ways. In other respects, they diverged greatly as they based their beliefs about life after death on the stories of their respective God/gods.
Join us for a gripping discussion of this most unavoidable set of human questions! We delve into the Hebrew Bible, Greek mythology, Second Temple Period Jewish literature, and more as we seek to gain a more accurate understanding of these ancient teachings and traditions. The Roundtable Talk is hosted by Dr. Yeshaya Gruber and features Dr. Cyndi Parker and Dr. Nicholas Schaser of the Israel Bible Center.
For more discussion on related themes, please see our course on Jews and Greeks on Life and Afterlife.
