THURSDAY EVENING VIDEO PROGRAM AND DISCUSSION: The Bible With and Without Jesus: How Jews and Christians Read the Same Stories Differently
January 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Christians frequently have read Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 53, Psalm 22, Genesis 1-2, and other scripture passages in ways that differ radically from how Jews would understand the same texts. In The Bible With and Without Jesus: How Jews and Christians Read the Same Stories Differently (HarperOne, 2020), Amy-Jill Levine looks at such texts and explores not only how Jews and Christians read the same Bible stories through different lenses, but also how Jews and Christians can learn from and understand each other better. This evening we will watch a taped October presentation Dr. Levine made on this extremely fascinating book, along with Pastor Craig then asking her a series of questions. Afterward we will have time to discuss it. Craig notes that it is one of the most fascinating lectures that he has heard in years.
