FOS tip: Well-known professor offers free online course about Jesus’ jewishness.
“Early Christian Outlook and its Jewish Matrix: Narratives of Gospels and Acts”. This is the name of the course that FOS suggests today for those interested in this topic. The course is available on the internet free of any cost and is taught in English by one of the most remarkable professors of this subject: Serge Ruzer.
Ruzer obtained his PhD from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (1996), where he teaches at the Department of Comparative Religion and the Rothberg International School and is a Senior Research Fellow at the Center for the Study of Christianity. He has published extensively on two main research foci: the nascent Christianity in its Jewish contexts and the early Syriac Christianity in its interaction with rabbinic Judaism and Greek Christian tradition.
