July: The Temple in the Gospel of Mark
July 7-28, 2021—Wednesdays @ 1 p.m. ET
The Temple plays an important and unique role in the Gospel of Mark, especially in chapters 11-15, which span from Yeshua’s arrival in the Temple, to the crucifixion. Many of the events that take place during this time are difficult to understand and have been traditionally interpreted in a supersessionist manner. This class examines a few of these events, like the cleansing of the Temple, the cursing of the fig tree. and the parable of the tenants, in their broader narrative context and from a Messianic Jewish hermeneutic to present a non-supersessionist understanding of this text.
