Dr. Levine is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University and author of many books and articles on Jesus and the New Testament from a Jewish perspective.

On Friday morning, March 22, Lutheran School of Theology in St. Louis will sponsor Dr. Levine’s workshop: “Understanding Jesus Means Understanding Judaism.”

This workshop addresses the common mistakes teachers and preachers make about first-century Judaism and Jesus' place within it; it provides guidance both for how to avoid anti-Jewish teaching and preaching, and for how better to understand Jesus within his own historical context. Lay persons, Bible study teachers, and pastors will find it helpful.

The workshop is from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Bethel Lutheran Church, 7001 Forsyth Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63105, corner of Forsyth and Big Bend Blvds.

Admission is free, but registration will be helpful at or by email to, or by phone message to 314-218-2556. Participants will find it useful to bring a copy of The Jewish Annotated New Testament, 2nd ed. by Drs. Levine and Brettler.
