JWST 36.02 Jewish Views of Christianity

What do Jews think of Christianity? The two religions took shape under each other’s influence as well as in repudiation of one another’s claims, but while we often hear about Christian anti-Judaism, we rarely learn about the other side of the story. This course will examine an ancient Jewish version of the Gospels, medieval Jewish polemics regarding Christian dogma, Christian influences on Jewish mysticism, modern Jewish scholarship on Christian origins, Jewish artistic representations of Christian symbols, and post-WWII Jewish efforts to create new and positive relations with Christians.
