Jews and Christians: The Early Years, with Dr. Regina Stein 
TUESDAYS, 11 AM TO 12:30 PM, OCTOBER 20, 27; NOVEMBER 3, 10, 17, 24; DECEMBER 1

Who was Jesus? How did his fellow Jews respond to his teachings? Why was he crucified? Given that Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism developed at the same time, how did they impact each other? How did the New Testament and a growing body of Rabbinic literature relate to the Hebrew Bible and its promises to the Jewish people? When and why did Jews and Christians become mutually exclusive? These are some of the questions we will explore as we analyze both Jewish and Christian sources that paint very different portraits of these movements from the 1st through the 6th centuries. More Info
