Interfaith Education – A Conversation About Jesus
August 21, 2008
On consecutive Tuesdays, August 19 and 26, Dothanâ€™s Temple Emanu-El and Evergreen Presbyterian Church are hosting an interfaith class on the subject of Jesus.
Rabbi Lynne Goldsmith and Reverend Joseph Johnson are leading the discussion of issues such as: (1) what is the Trinity; (2) was Jesus man or God or both; (3) what is the Jewish interpretation of the Messianic texts in Hebrew Scriptures ?
The first class was well attended; the audience of 45 addressed many of the questions of mutual concern, delving into history and scripture, all the while respecting each of our faith traditions.
This class promises to be another success in a series of such community Dothan interfaith events in which Temple Emanu-El is pleased and honored to be a major partner.
