Views of the Messianic Age in Judaism and Christianity, Global Christianity, Cross-Cultural and Interfaith Ministries
This joint course with Hebrew College will trace the development of the messianic idea from its biblical roots through Second Temple Judaism and into later rabbinic and Christian thought. Our study will explore interpretations of key texts in New Testament and Christian theology, as well as among Jewish philosophers,
kabbalists, and mystics. The course will examine the qualities and characteristics of the messianic age as understood by different personalities and faith communities. Classes will take place on the Andover Newton campus. This course fulfills the GCIM requirement.
