Speaker: Matthias Henze, Rice University

In recent years, a significant number of books have appeared that investigate the Jewish Jesus. This talk examines what prompted this new interest in the Jewishness of Jesus. Of course, to say that Jesus was a Jew is merely to state the obvious. It becomes relevant only if we can say more about the kind of Judaism Jesus was practicing and when we can explain why this matters today.

Matthias Henze is the Isla Carroll and Percy E. Turner Professor of Hebrew Bible and Early Judaism at Rice University in Houston, Texas, and the founding director of Rice’s Program in Jewish Studies. His areas of interest include the Hebrew Bible, Early Judaism, and Christian origins.

This online lecture is being held in conjunction with Mandelbaum House and Sydney University’s Department of Hebrew, Biblical and Jewish Studies.
