In this latest episode of Amplify Live, join Dr. Amy-Jill Levine as she discusses with writer Rob Simbeck her new study, The Difficult Words of Jesus: A Beginner's Guide to His Most Perplexing Teachings.
Jesus provided his disciples teachings for how to follow Torah, God’s word; he told them parables to help them discern questions of ethics and of human nature; he offered them beatitudes for comfort and encouragement. But sometimes Jesus spoke words that followers then – and now – have found difficult.
In this episode, hear from Levine about how these difficult teachings would have sounded to the people who first heard them, how they have been understood over time, and how we might interpret them in the Gospel context of love and reconciliation. At the end of this live episode, airing on Amplify Media’s Facebook and YouTube channels, there will be time for the audience to ask questions.
