Jesus the Jew

Jesus the Jew01:563:341 (crosslisted with 840:310)
Monday / Thursday, 3rd period (11:30-12:50)
Miller Hall, Room 115
Prof. Azzan Yadin-Israel

This course explores the historic figure of Jesus within the context of first century Palestinian Judaism. Toward this end, we will study the main groups and institutions of Judaism at the time of Jesus, using them as a backdrop against which to “map” out Jesus and his teachings, thus gaining familiarity with Second Temple, rabbinic, and early Christian traditions. Among the topics to be covered: Jesus and the Law, Jesus and the Temple, the problem of religious authority and types of religious leaders, the Sermon on the Mount, the “Parting of the Ways” and more.
