A Jewish and Christian Perspective of the Book of Psalms
October 18 @ 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM$150
Hebrew Seminary – Fall Semester, Sundays, October 18 – January 21, 2021
3:15 – 4:45pm
Rabbi Dr. Douglas Goldhamer and Reverend Rick and Mary Mercer will interpret a number of the 150 Psalms of David to open a conversation that will include a lively and free-flowing debate in support of understanding both the Jewish and Christian interpretations of the texts.
In Christian commentaries, the Psalms of David forecasts the advent of Jesus. (Jesus is descended from the lineage of David.) Reverend Mercer is associate minister of the Missionary Tabernacle Baptist Church of Evanston, and Mary Harris Mercer is superintendent of the Missionary Tabernacle Baptist Church of Evanston Sunday school.
Join Rabbi Goldhamer and the Mercers for an entree to understanding how the Jewish and Christian traditions are similar and unique. At the same time, you may find that you expand and fine-tune aspects of your own personal theology.
