Marc Brettler joins co-author Amy-Jill Levine for the release of the second edition of The Jewish Annotated New Testament at The Regulator for a reading and booksigning.
In The Jewish Annotated New Testament, eminent experts under the general editorship of Amy-Jill Levine and Marc Z. Brettler put these writings back into the context of their original authors and audiences and explain how these writings have affected the relations of Jews and Christians over the past two thousand years. For non-Jewish readers interested in the Jewish roots of Christianity and for Jewish readers who want a New Testament that neither proselytizes for Christianity nor denigrates Judaism, The Jewish Annotated New Testament is an essential volume that places these writings in a context that will enlighten students, professionals, and general readers.
Marc Z. Brettler is Dora Golding Professor of Biblical Studies at Brandeis University.
Amy-Jill Levine is professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University and an affiliated professor of Jewish Studies at Cambridge University.
