Course Description

ONLINE: Judaism and Christianity are two of the world’s major religions. Many of us are familiar with one or the other — but we don’t often consider the relationship that exists between them. In the first century, Christianity developed out of Judaism. For many years, Christians saw themselves as Jews. Because of this shared heritage, in which Judaism serves as the root of Christianity, the two religions have much in common. This course will seek to go back in time to look at the foundations of Judaism and the foundations of Christianity, acknowledging what these two faiths have in common and how they can learn from one another. This lecture-based course will address: 1) Judaism's early stories, 2) the kings, 3) exile to the Maccabees, 4) the first century, 5) Jesus and Judaism and 6) the development of Christianity. | Lecture + Q&A.
