New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is hosting the Greer-Heard event under the topic "Christians, Jews, and Jesus." Featured speakers include Ben Witherington III and Amy-Jill Levine.
The Greer-Heard dialogue will focus upon understanding Jesus as a first-century Jew. In particular the discussion will focus on the “Jewishness” of Jesus, Jesus’ uniquely Jewish eschatology, and Jesus’ resurrection.
The Greer-Heard Point-Counterpoint Forum in Faith and Culture is a program of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. The Forum is designed to provide a venue in which respected scholars of differing opinions dialogue on critical issues in religion, science, philosophy, and/or culture from their differing perspectives.
