Join us for a three-part series taught by Rabbi Jeremy Simons and explore how the messianic concept developed within Judaism. We will learn about notable false messiahs throughout history and the Reform innovation of a Messianic Age. We will also unpack the idea of how a messiah (literally “one anointed with oil”) evolved into military, political, and religious leaders and ultimately into a single individual who was to perform all three roles.
Please register and join us on Tuesday, December 15, 22, and 29. This session is open to all. Questions? Please visit our website at TIMemphis.org.
