About this episode:

Jesus was a Jew. But has modern Christianity become divorced from its Jewish roots? Can we recover the distinctly Jewish teachings of Jesus the rabbi? And how should we understand the shared story and differences between these two great religious traditions?

Journalist-priest Rev Giles Fraser tells his own story of reconnecting with his Jewish roots. He engages with Professor Amy-Jill Levine, who has spent her academic life as a Jewish scholar engaging the story of Jesus, in what promises to be a personal and lively exchange on the commonalities and distinctives of Judaism and Christianity.

Rev Giles Fraser is rector of St. Mary’s, Newington and a well known UK journalist and broadcaster. His recent book ‘Chosen: Lost and found between Christianity and Judaism’ tells the story of the personal crisis that followed his resignation from St Paul’s Cathedral and the healing journey of reconnecting with his Jewish roots.

Prof Amy-Jill Levine is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies and Mary Jane Werthan Professor of Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University. Her publications on Jesus and Judaism include The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus, Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi, and The Jewish Annotated New Testament.
