This group examines the diverse ways in which Jews embraced Jesus from the lifetime of Jesus until the rise of Islam. Add yourself to our mailing list.

“Is Hindsight Really 20/20?” is our 2020 theme. The act of looking backwards through church history to confirm contemporary practices and beliefs is a methodological decision that carries with it numerous assumptions that influence our interpretation of the New Testament and later literature.

This year’s papers identify problematic assumptions that have been barriers to reading the New Testament “within Judaism.” Papers will be distributed to our mailing list during the first week of November so that participants can read them in advance.
