A Survey of Jewish History

Moderated by Dr. Glenn Dynner

The seminar is a survey of the interaction of Judaism, Christianity, Islam and the secular world from Biblical to modern times.  Among the questions to be explored:

1) Where did the myth that Jews killed Christ originate?

2) Is there truth to the belief that the Old Testament God is a god of wrath and judgement, and the New Testament God is a god of love and forgiveness?

3) How do all three religions deal with the status of women?
