Season 1: Episode 14
Recognizing the Jewishness of Jesus
Date Aired: 02/14/2023

In today’s episode, guest Amy-Jill Levine explains how Jesus’s teachings, actions, and miracles fit squarely within first-century Jewish beliefs and practice and why understanding Jesus’s Jewishness is imperative for healing the centuries-old rift between Jews and Christians.
