This year’s course is titled Siblings – Part 2: Second Temple Judaism and the Development of Early Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism. The course will be offered on six consecutive Thursday mornings at 10:00 am beginning on January 7 via Zoom.
Please join us on Zoom.
In discussing his course, Stark-Riemer states that “The religions we know today as Judaism and Christianity were born at the same time, nurtured in the same environment, and their parent was Second Temple Judaism. In this course, we will examine the Dead Sea Scrolls and Jewish apocalyptic eschatology as a prelude to exploring the roots and early development of the ‘Siblings’, their responses to the First and Second Revolts against Rome, and finally, their ‘Parting of the Ways.’”
Mr. Stark-Riemer has acquired a devoted following in his adult education endeavors in the Sarasota/Manatee Jewish Community. The titles to the six sessions are: “Introducing the Dead Sea Scrolls,” “The Texts within the Scrolls,” “Apocalypticism Meets Politics,” “One More Sect,” “Another End and Another Beginning,” and “The Parting of the Ways”.
