For centuries, studies of Jesus downplayed or ignored his Jewish historical context – and many studies still address his Jewish background only as a stepping-stone to his role as the Christ. But such neglect has had serious consequences. Find out how many of these studies have served as a fertile source for anti-Judaism and anti-Semitism at “The Jewish Jesus” on Friday, November 16, at 11 a.m., at Oakton Community College’s Skokie campus, 7701 North Lincoln Avenue (Room P103).
Sponsored by the College’s Jewish Studies Concentration, this free presentation features Zev Garber, Ph.D., professor emeritus and chair of Jewish Studies, Los Angeles Valley College, and editor of Shofar Journal. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
