Salvation is from the Jews - Christianity and Judaism in Theological Perspective and Dialogue

TRT2680HF L0101 SESSION: Fall 2022 INSTRUCTOR(S): Ready, Geoffrey

COLLEGE: Trinity College SCHEDULE: Wed TIME: 19:00 to 21:00

CREDITS: One Credit

The relationship between Christianity and Judaism is central to the identity of Christians and the church. Yet for much of the past two millennia, from the “parting of the ways” in the first and second centuries, the story of Christians and Jews has been difficult and troubled, culminating in the tragic events of the 20th century. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, there has been a renewed engagement between the two traditions, and with a proliferation of scholarship and deepening of knowledge of Second Temple Judaism over the last half century, a joint effort has been made by Christians and Jews to correct historical inaccuracies and prejudices and amend theological traditions that had separated Jesus and Paul from their Jewish contexts and driven a hard wedge between communities sharing faith in the one God of Israel. This course will delve into key elements of this new scholarship and rekindled dialogue, enabling students to apply these insights across their theological studies and pastoral practice.
