God Help Us

Oct 3, 2019

In this episode, Annie is joined by Amy-Jill Levine, a Jewish New Testament scholar. In addition to her role as a professor of Jewish Studies and New Testament studies at Vanderbilt, she’s a prolific author. They begin by discussing anti-Jewish readings of Jesus, which leads them to other binaries and us-versus-them mentalities in public life. 

AJ recommends the following books that she has contributed to along with many of her colleagues: The Jewish Annotated New Testament; her commentary on The Gospel of Luke co-authored with Ben Witherington, III; her series of Bible studies published by Abingdon Press; and her children’s books co-authored with Sandy Eisenberg Sasso. 

And an announcement: you’re invited to join Annie in-person for dinner and discussion put on by Coastland Commons on Monday, October 21 in Seattle. Get the details and RSVP at We’ll be talking about reclaiming stories from our past and present and learning to trust our own instincts despite the voices that have tried to convince us that our instincts are untrustworthy and our feelings unreliable. See you there!
