The Jewish Wisdom of Jesus

Monday, October 26, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Taught by Rabbi Burt Jacobson

Did you know:

• that Jesus of Nazareth was a practicing Jew?
• that Jesus built his teachings largely out of the Hebrew Bible and the Jewish traditions of his time?
• that like the ancient Hebrew prophets, Jesus was deeply concerned about the poor and the disenfranchised?
• that Christianity was originally a form of Judaism?

This is the emerging consensus of contemporary scholarship, and more and more Jews are honoring Jesus as one of Judaism’s eminent teachers. Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi wrote that “the words of Yeshua of Nazareth are the teachings of a rebbe to his Hasidim, all of whom lived and died as Jews.” In this two-hour class we will study Jesus’ life and his spiritual and moral teachings. We will also examine the role played by Martin Buber in the 20th century in the creation of interfaith dialogue and the reclamation of Jesus as a Jewish teacher.
