What defines a “Jew/Judaean” (Ioudaios) in the Second Temple period? Dr. Anthony Le Donne (United Theological Seminary, Ohio) has devoted his most recent research to this important and controversial question. Join in this stimulating conversation with Prof. Yeshaya Gruber of the Israel Bible Center as Prof. Le Donne explains his “poliscentrism” model and how it can help Jewish and Christian readers today. As a bonus, learn about the scandals and arguments over whether Jesus/Yeshua of Nazareth was married and hear of some extraordinary developments in Jewish-Christian relations today.
Dr. Le Donne’s books include: Near Christianity: How Journeys Along Jewish-Christian Borders Saved My Faith In God; The Wife of Jesus: Ancient Texts and Modern Scandals; and Historical Jesus: What Can We Know and How We Can Know It? He is actively involved in Jewish-Christian relations and the executive editor of the Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus.
