What Bible, Whose Bible:  Studying the Scripture of Others

“The” Bible does not exist. Different religious communities have different Bibles, with different books, in different orders, and different languages—and this matters.  How can we be fully sensitive to these when we study the scriptures of others?  By reflecting on The Jewish Annotated New Testament and The Bible With and Without Jesus, Dr. Brettler will explore how we may maintain our own beliefs and commitments while still being attentive to others.


Dr. Marc Brettler Marc Brettler, a member of the American Academy for Jewish Research, is the Bernice and Morton Lerner Distinguished Professor of Jewish Studies in the Department of Religious Studies at Duke University. He has also taught at Brandeis University, Yale University, Brown University, Wellesley College, Middlebury College, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is the author of many books and articles on the Bible as history, metaphors and the Bible, gender and the Bible, the Jewish interpretation of the Bible, and the place of the New Testament in Judaism, including The Jewish Annotated New Testament (with Amy-Jill Levine). His most recent book is The Bible With and Without Jesus: How Jews Christians Read the Same Story Differently (with Amy-Jill Levine). He has written for The Forward and The Jerusalem Report, has appeared on the Television series “Mysteries of the Bible,” was heard on the National Public Radio show “All Things Considered,” and was interviewed on “Fresh Air” by Terry Gross.
