“The Bible With and Without Jesus”

January 10 , 12:00 pm

National Library of Israel presents scholars Amy-Jill Levine and Marc Zvi Brettler, discussing how and why Jews and Christians read many of the same Biblical texts – including passages from the Pentateuch, the Prophets, and the Psalms – differently. The talk will examine a number of passages from the Hebrew Bible that are quoted in the New Testament, to show what the texts meant in their original contexts and then how Jews and Christians, over time, gave these same passages different interpretations.
