Jewish Scholars on the New Testament? A Me'ah instructor's worthy exploration.

by Me'ah / October 26, 2011
  • Did you ever wonder what is “new” about the New Testament, but you were afraid to read it?
  • Were you concerned that New Testament editions may attempt to missionize or attempt to convert you to their perspective? 
  • Did Me’ah classes get you curious about the relation between Judaism and early Christianity?
  • Have you been wondering what a second volume of the Oxford University Press Jewish Study Bible would look like?

If your answer to any of these is “yes,” you would be interested in the just-published Jewish Annotated New Testament, co-edited by long-time Me’ah instructor Marc Brettler of Brandeis University, and New Testament scholar Amy-Jill Levine of Vanderbilt University.

For this first time, this book presents Jewish scholars commenting on each of the New Testament books, and writing thirty essays on issues concerning Judaism and Christianity such as “Judaism and Jewishness” (Shaye Cohen) and “Jesus in Modern Jewish Thought” (Susannah Heschel). Learn more about this book, which Rabbi A. James Rudin of the American Jewish Committee calls “An historic volume of extraordinary scholarship that can transform Christian-Jewish relations….A must-read for both clergy and laity…A significant achievement,” on Amazon.com.
