Jews Worshiping Jesus and Christians Practicing Judaism: Everything Old is New Again

Thursday, February 27. 3:30-5:00 P.M.

Campion Student Center – Sunroom 1

Please join us for an exciting opportunity for an informal conversation with Prof. Amy-Jill Levine, University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University.

Prof. Levine is a world-renowned New Testament scholar and authority on Jewish-Christian relations, as well as a dynamic, lively speaker. Most recently, she has co-edited The Jewish Annotated New Testament.

We have asked her to say a few words about a topic of current interest in Christian-Jewish relations: Jews who worship Jesus (so-called “Messianic Jews”) and Christians who observe aspects of Torah (sometimes called “Judaizing Christians”). After her remarks, we’ll chat with her and each other. If you have heard her speak before—she visited SJU in 2009—you will surely agree she shouldn’t be missed!
