Jesus the Jew, Christ the Christian:
Refocusing the Lens
with Nissa Basbaum

SORRENTO CENTRE Sunday, July 20 - Saturday, July 26, 2014 Jesus the Jew, Christ the Christian: Refocusing the Lens with Nissa Basbaum In his book, Jesus Against Christianity, Jack NelsonPallmeyer writes, “If Jesus is to be our guide… then we must meet him as a Jewish man in first-century Palestine. There really shouldn’t be anything extraordinary about this statement; scholars have written tomes about the historical Jesus. Yet, this scholarship hasn’t always filtered through to the people in our congregations. Instead, the impact of Jesus’ connection to the Jewish community seems to be minimal. This course will explore the shift from the Jewish Jesus – a prophet in the tradition of other Jewish holy men of the Hebrew Scriptures, to the Christian Christ – the divine Son of God at the heart of the official state religion of the Roman Empire. In addition to considering the historical and theological shifts that took place early in the first century, the sessions will also reflect on what difference it might make for us in the 21st century that Jesus was Jewish. Are we missing something because our focus on him is, and has been, through a Christian rather than a Jewish lens? NISSA BASBAUM is the Dean of the Diocese of Kootenay and the Incumbent at the Cathedral of St. Michael and All Angels in Kelowna. Before studying theology, she graduated in journalism and wrote for a newspaper in Newfoundland, where she converted from Judaism to Christianity. After spending two years in England, “growing into” this new faith, she has since spent over 30 years commingling her two faiths. Her background significantly informs her Christianity and her place in the church as a clergyperson. Nissa is married to Robin Graves, also a priest. They have two adult children, Ben and Rebekah.
