John Noble is teaching a class on The Origins of Jewish Christianity starting April 23 at 10:00am in Room 304. This will be a four week class. Here’s John’s description of the class: “Christianity does not emerge de novo in a cultural or religious vacuum, but rather, in large part, from the traditions of the Old Testament — what Jews refer to as the Tanakh, or Miqra. This four-week seminar will explore some of the foundational questions facing the early church as it began to forge its own identity as a community of faith rooted in the Jewish Scriptures.”
