Episode: Jon Levenson’s Resurrection and the Restoration of Israel (Yale, 2006) is one of the books I (Matt) most recommend to my students and colleagues. It models biblical scholarship that is exegetically adept, holds the big picture, understands the history of interpretation, and is genuinely creative. Dru and I had the privilege of sitting down with Jon Levenson–a favorite on the show–to talk through this topic of vital importance to Jews and Christians.
Guest: Jon Levenson is Albert A. List Professor of Jewish Studies at Harvard Divinity School.
