May: The Theme of Repentance in Luke-Acts
May 3, 10, 17 and 24, 2022 - Tuesdays @ 1 p.m. ET
The gospel presented in Luke and Acts links the death and resurrection of Messiah Yeshua to the coming judgment and restoration of Jerusalem and the Jewish people. This future restoration in turn entails repentance or teshuvah, a turn away from sin and back to God. This class, based on the recent publication, Besorah: The Resurrection of Jerusalem and the Healing of a Fractured Gospel, by Mark Kinzer and Russ Resnik, explores teshuvah as an essential aspect of Luke’s gospel or besorah—an aspect that paradoxically reflects the besorah’s deep Jewish roots and prophetic implications.
