Listen to the Land 2
This week I am in the hot seat as Dr. Yeshaya Gruber takes over the role of interviewer. We talk about my gospel-centric course Listening to the Land of the Bible Part 2, starting with two great questions. How do we "put Jesus in place"? How does the land tell us secrets?
The Priestly Gospel of John
Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg joins us at the podcast table once again to discuss his course The Jewish Gospel of John. Should the word “Jews” in the gospel of John be better translated “Judeans”? How and why are the Samaritans central to the gospel of John? And what's so priestly about John's writings?
Is John pro-Samaritan?
Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg is the Professor of Ancient Cultures at Israel Bible Center. He joins us this week to discuss unique aspects of his course titled The Jewish Gospel of John - a study initially motivated by the seemingly anti-Jewish message of the text. What he found was a deep connection between the Gospel of John and the book of Ezekiel. Do you have doubts? Listen in and see what you think.
Is Torah for Everyone?
This podcast introduces you to the wide range of resources available at Israel Bible Center including the Hot Topics Conferences. This week we take a small bite out of the complex debate, "Is Torah for Israel or for Everyone?" In this episode we hear Dr. Yeshaya Gruber establish some fundamental concepts given in the Hebrew Bible. Let's start with defining "Torah" and "Israel" and "Everyone."
Is Harmony Necessary?
This is our final installment of the Roundtable Talk with Dr. Amy-Jill Levine and Dr. Marc Zvi Brettler. On the table for discussion is the issue of harmonization of the biblical text. Why do Christians feel the need to harmonize and the Jews don't? Dr. Nicholas Schaser joins the conversation to talk about the role of "sola scriptura" in influencing the views of Protestant Christians.
