I am invited by the Caspari Center to lecture on the birth of the Greek Bible and Christianity.
This lecture is the second part of a series on “How Did the Bible Come to Us?” The first part dealt with the Old Testament, and I will now focus on the origins of Greek Scriptures and Christianity. Why, when and how did Jewish communities switch from Hebrew to Greek? Was this also the case for the early followers of Jesus of Nazareth? What did they write, and what does it mean for the birth of this group? When did the Jesus movement become independent of Judaism?
To find out, come and join us Friday, September 13 at 10:00 at the Caspari Center, 55 Haneviim.
