Description: 

Understanding Jesus' parables (e.g., "Pearl of Great Price," "Prodigal Son," "Good Samaritan") requires understanding Jesus' own Jewish context. How would the parables have been heard by Jesus' original Jewish listeners, and how might those original messages still speak to Jews and Christians, and to all people, today?Please join the Cummins Institute, the TRS Department, and The Christian Brothers as they welcome Professor Amy-Jill Levine of Vanderbilt University.
