The Origin of Satan in Judaism and Christianity: An Interfaith Exploration on the Origins of Evil.
Rabbi Grossman will dive into the history of the idea of Satan from its original references in Hebrew Scripture, through its development in Jewish sectarian literature, including the Dead Sea Scrolls, to its development in early Christian Scripture in this comparative religion interfaith study. The class will explore how the ideas reflected in these works fueled the anti-Judaism of early and later Christianity as well as helped shape the development of Jewish mysticism.
