“The Bible With and Without Jesus: How Jews and Christians Read the Same Bible Differently”
Rabbi Isaak teaches this class: 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. This class utilizes the book: The Bible With and Without Jesus by Levine & Brettler.
