Our podcast with host Dr. Cyndi Parker invites Israel Bible Center scholars to engage in captivating discussions about the content of their courses and provides an opportunity to go deeper into the Bible.
This week we listen in on a conversation between Dr. Gruber and Dr. Beth Alpert Nakhai from the Arizona Center for Judaic Studies. She introduces us to the shift in archaeological studies this century towards domestic settings of Israelites instead of the palace and the temple. This shift introduces us to a wider exploration of ancient life, culture, and society that brings women into the picture and celebrates their contribution to the family and to society.
This week we continue our short tour through the Roundtable Talk about Black Theology and Biblical Equality with Rev. Dr. Charles Howard. We start with his definition about what Black Theology and then talk about why it is important. We finish with the significance of music in society.
This week we take a short tour through a Roundtable Talk called Black Theology and Biblical Equality. We have a chance to meet Rev. Dr. Charles Howard who is the University Chaplain and Vice President for Social Equity and Community at the University of Pennsylvania. Although a bit political (purposefully) and USA centric, there is something here we all need to hear. How should we think about people who are so different from ourselves? How do we identify racist behavior? Who gets to be the central figure in the histories we tell?
Once again Dr. Gruber sits in the interviewer's seat to find out more about Dr. Parker's course "Listening to the Land of the Bible, Part 2." The conversation journeys through significant villages in Jesus' life to explore how the land helps us understand Jesus better. Where are those hidden secrets it has to tell?
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?
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?
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.
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."
