Same Stories, Different Texts:  The Hebrew Bible and New Testament

Rabbi Judy Schindler, Sklut Professor of Jewish Studies, in partnership with Dr. Nancy Ellett Allison
Wednesday afternoons, 12:15-1:45 pm, October 3 through December 5 (No class on 10/10 and 11/21)
An eight week community course brought to you by Jewish Studies at Queens University.

Location: Queens University, Sykes 322
Cost: $150

In our city of Charlotte with its 960 churches, we are surrounded by neighbors who, alone or with a group, explore the Bible and its teachings in various ways. Those who are Christian read the Hebrew Bible differently than those who are Jewish. Christians see it as foreshadowing the New Testament. Jews do not. During this course, we will compare and contrast the portrayal of personalities and pertinent topics in the Hebrew Bible and in the New Testament from Abraham to the afterlife, from covenant to commandments, from the messiah to miracles.

 

The Reverend Dr. Nancy Ellett Allison is Senior Minister of Holy Covenant UCC in Charlotte. She earned her BA from Baylor University and her MDiv and PhD from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. A popular speaker, preacher and retreat leader, Nancy has written and edited for several publications, and served as Secretary of the Southern Conference of the UCC and a member of the board of directors.

 

Rabbi Judith Schindler is Sklut Professor of Jewish Studies and Director of the Stan Greenspon Center for Peace and Social Justice at Queens University of Charlotte.
