Jesus and Sabbath Study Guide
The adult Sunday school class at my church is currently studying Jesus in his Jewish context, with a particular emphasis on addressing anti-Judaism. We are looking at four specific topics: Sabbath, exorcism, nonviolence, and social justice. I thought I'd make some of the study guides we're using available online, in case someone might find them useful. Click here to access the PDF on "Jesus and the Sabbath." The study guide has some general discussion and several excerpts from primary Jewish sources on the Sabbath. If addressing anti-Judaism in the church and scholarship is something that is interesting to you, then you might check out Amy-Jill Levine's The Misunderstood Jew. You can also take a gander at our earlier post on "The Good Scribe."
