Biblical Foundations of Jewish and Christian Difference
|Field of Study||Bible|
The course looks at biblical and early post-biblical roots of Jewish and Christian difference. It is text centered, attempting to understand from a historical vantage point how it is that Jews and Christians (often beginning with the same Hebrew Bible texts) have developed world views and identities which differ from each other. The ultimate aim of the course is to explore more deeply the dynamics of interfaith relationships in the world today.
