Jesus and Judaism: Why the Connection Matters
With Dr. Amy-Jill Levine
University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies; Mary Jane Werthan Professor of Jewish Studies; Professor of New Testament Studies, Divinity School and College of Arts and Science at Vanderbilt University

Jesus of Nazareth is often seen as rejecting a Judaism incorrectly characterized as legalistic, misogynistic, vengeful, and xenophobic. Understanding Jesus in his Jewish context corrects false stereotypes, brings new meaning to his parables, politics, and piety, and it offers a new path for Jewish-Christian relations.
