Jesus and the Synagogue, part 3

With Jordan Ryan

The synagogue is a significant part of Jesus’ ministry, as recounted in the Gospels. And so little is known about the beginnings of the synagogue, that the Gospel accounts are actually a major resource for such studies. Why did Jesus choose the synagogue for the focus of much of his ministry? That's our topic on this program.

Jesus and the Synagogue

With Jordan Ryan

The synagogue is a significant part of Jesus' ministry, as recounted in the Gospels. And so little is known about the beginnings of the synagogue, that the Gospel accounts are actually a major resource for such studies. Wheaton College professor Jordan Ryan, author of The Role of the Synagogue in the Aims of Jesus (Fortress Press, 2017), has excavated at Magdala, where one of the most recently discovered first century synagogues was discovered, and has extensively studied the history of the synagogue. In addition to this 3-part interview, Ryan will be speaking in Madison on Saturday, October 19, 2019, International Archaeology Day. His talk is at 7pm at Upper House, 365 East Campus Mall #200, on the University of Wisconsin campus. Presented by the Madison Biblical Archaeology Society and Upper House.

Remembering James Strange and the Archaeology of Qumran

With James Strange

We are sorry to report the passing of James Strange, a professor of religious studies at the University of South Florida, and an archaeologist associated with work at Sepphoris (4 miles from Nazareth) and Qumran (where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered). He died March 23, 2018. He was 80 years old. We have several programs in our archives with professor Strange. This program was recorded in 2000, when the Israel Antiquities Authority presented a display of the Dead Sea Scrolls at the Field Museum in Chicago. There were a number of lectures in association with this event, and at the particular lecture professor Strange reported on the archaeological background of Khirbet Qumran, near where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.
