Marc Brettler: A Jewish Perspective on the New Testament

Professor Marc Brettler (Brandeis University) presented the 2015 David S. Lobel Visiting Scholar Lecture on May 12 at Stanford University, “A Jewish Perspective on the New Testament”. The lecture discusses the book he co-edited (with Amy-Jill Levine), The Jewish Annotated New Testament (2011).

The New Testament began as a largely Jewish book, but it is mostly ignored by the Jewish community. As co-editor of The Jewish Annotated New Testament, the speaker will explore the importance of the New Testament to Judaism and how Jewish perspectives on the New Testament are relevant to contemporary Christianity.

The lecture begins at 5:00.
