Is death the end or the beginning? Upon passing away, does a person cease to exist? or dream on in a kind of “sleep”? or stumble off to some hazy consciousness in a shadowy netherworld? or face the Creator of the universe for the ultimate judgment?
Why was the question of the resurrection such a divisive issue for first-century Jews? What kind of “new life” did many anticipate after death?
The discussion will be hosted by Dr. Yeshaya Gruber and will feature Profs. Nicholas Schaser and Pinchas Shir. Join us as we delve into the Hebrew Bible, Greek philosophy and mythology, Second Temple Period Jewish literature, and much more.
This roundtable talk will be available later in 2021.
