Lecture by Amy-Jill Levine (Vanderbilt University). Sponsored by the Taube Center for Jewish Studies and co-sponsored by the Department of Religious Studies.
Jesus told Parables — the Prodigal Son, the Good Samaritan, etc. — to fellow Jews. Recovering that original setting corrects their frequent anti-Jewish interpretations, provides a grounding for better Jewish/Christian relations, and offers new insight into both ancient and contemporary social relations.
Amy-Jill Levine is E. Rhodes & Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies at Vanderbilt University.
