IPT5/720 – Jews and Christians: A Theological Journey

View outline (PDF)   Instructor(s): Rabbi Dr. Laura Duhan Kaplan

Instructor(s): Rev. Dr. Jason Byassee

Jews and Christians have often done theology as rivals. In this course, we will explore a different approach: talking about God as curious friends with a common goal of being a blessing to the world. We will study both traditions’ core Biblical narratives of faith (Exodus and Resurrection), examine prominent modern declarations of common ground, read inter-faith writings from contemporary theologians, and discuss multiple approaches to interfaith engagement.
