Would Jesus Be Afraid?

Placeholder


COURSE OVERVIEW
The church has a long history of antisemitism that must be addressed. What if it continues to linger unseen in how we read, interpret, and share the central narrative of Jesus? In this course, Rabbi Edelheit will introduce you to the changing contours of antisemitism, uncover its historical roots, and walk us through the texts of Holy Week as we work to wrestle them from a treacherous legacy.

While a Christian theologian can’t avoid discussing Jewish texts or the faith, for much of our history, we did so without the presence and contributions of our Jewish neighbors. The lasting legacy of antisemitism is an ongoing tragedy in the life of the church, and we hope to respond by having this conversation differently.

Session 1 – An eye-opening lecture from Rabbi Edenheit laying out the History of Christian Antisemitism, both past and present. Here you will gain a framework for the larger conversation.

Session 2 – A guided deep dive into the Gospel texts that tell the story of Holy Week. We intend to wrestle these texts from their antisemitic interpreters and empower you to do the same.
