F602 Fall 2018 Why Judaism Does Not Accept Jesus: The Limits of the Judeo-Christian Tradition
Wednesdays, 11:50–1:15, Sept. 26–Oct. 31 New start date
Five sessions
Instructor: Steve Goldman

Christians worship Jesus as the Messiah promised by the Hebrew Scriptures and as God manifested in the flesh. But no form of Judaism accepts Jesus as Messiah or even as a prophet. In this course, we will explore the principal reasons why all of the diverse manifestations of Judaism are united in the view that Jesus, as described in the New Testament, is not Messiah or prophet, and why the New Testament is not the logical completion or continuation of the Hebrew Scriptures. Although we often speak of a Judeo-Christian tradition in order to find common ground, this course explores the limits of that common ground.
Steven C. Goldman is the chair of OLLI’s Religious Studies Program Planning Group and has taught numerous courses on alternative understandings of Biblical doctrine.
