It’s rare that important voices in the area of religion and faith come to Anchorage to share their thoughts and perspective. Amy-Jill Levine, PhD is a professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School and College of Arts and Sciences. She will be giving a free public lecture at APU on March 1. The topic of her lecture is, “Jesus, Judaism and Jewish-Christian Relations.”
She has held office in the Society of Biblical Literature, the Catholic Biblical Association, and the Association for Jewish Studies. She is the author, co-author, or editor of numerous books, including The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus; The Historical Jesus in Context; the Jewish Annotated New Testament; and Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi. If you’ve seen her name before it has possibly been connected to The Great Courses where she’s taught Old and New Testament and other related subjects.
She is an erudite, witty, and listenable voice that helps us challenge our assumptions about faith. I can’t wait to hear her remarks. Her lecture promises to be well-attended. It will be held March 1, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at Alaska Pacific University’s Earl R. Brown Auditorium, Grant Hall.
