The biblical passages Christians read and study in Lent have been rich sources of mystical, artistic, and theological contemplation since the beginning of the Christian church. But these same passages have played a horrific role in Jewish-Christian relations through the centuries. Mainstream interpretations of Jesus’ suffering have fueled Christian anti-Semitism and spilled over into violence against Jews during Lent, even up to the present. How can Christians account for this history while also maintaining attachment to these biblical passages? In this series of lectures Dr. Taylor will offer some new ways of thinking about these passages in conversation with four local rabbis.
