Gain deeper insight into the roots of rabbinical Judaism and greater insight into the historical meanings of Jesus’ ministry! The Jesus movement grew up as part of the complex strands of messianic expectation, spiritual practice, sectarian and political conflict of Second Temple Judaism. We will explore insights of Jewish and Christian scholars into the background and circumstances of the Gospel of Mark and some of the teachings in the earliest “gospel,” known to scholars only as “Q” or “Source.” Join us for greater interfaith understanding!
