Two Christians and a Jew

Two Christians and a Jew

by

Christians find hints to Jesus in the Old Testament. Jews don’t. Why? Christians use the term “legalism” to deride a dry, mechanistic religious practice, but Jews have a tradition of passionate legal interpretation and the Torah’s laws describe the very nature of their practice. Are we even talking about the same laws? How did Moses read Scripture? Isaiah? The Pharisees? Jesus himself? Two Christians and a Jew is co-hosted by two Christians, Frank and Jen, and a Jew, Meir. Together with our amazing guests, we discuss how we read Hebrew Scriptures differently and what difference it makes for our lives. We’re putting up a load of content on our website TwoChristiansAndAJew.com, so check it out! Dottie Rogers, writer, therapist, educator, and scholar, joins us to talk about brit milah, covenant, circumcision, and the life of Abram-Abraham.
