Adult Ed: “The Bible With and Without Jesus: How Jews and Christians Read the Same Bible Differently” with Rabbi Daniel Isaak

January 21, 2021 | 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Thursdays, 10:30-11:30am, 12 sessions from January 21-April 8

While Christians see original sin in the story of Adam and Eve, Jews do not. That is possible because we both read our Scripture in light of our long traditions: the New Testament versus Talmud and commentary. Employing a recently published scholarly book, we will explore how sister religions derive contradictory affirmations from identical passages.

Cost: $25. Register with Lisa Marie at: receptionist@nevehshalom.org or 503-246-8831.
