Prof. Joshua Garroway will speak on “The Historical Jesus”
Friday, November 11, 2016, 8:15 p.m. (Shabbat Alive services at 7:00 p.m.)

Few Jews have left a greater imprint on history than Jesus of Nazareth. This presentation explores, from a historical perspective, just what sort of Jew Jesus actually was – what he said, what he did, and why he died. Rabbi Joshua Garroway, Ph.D., serves as Associate Professor of Early Christianity and the Second Commonwealth at Hebrew Union College/Jewish Institute of Religion. He earned his doctorate from the Religious Studies Department at Yale University and was ordained at the Cincinnati campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. His first book, Paul’s Gentile-Jews: Neither Jew Nor Gentile, But Both, explores the ways in which Paul's epistle to the Romans constructs Jewish identity, and the role played by this construction in the ensuing emergence of Christianity.
