ICCJ President's Greetings for Pesach and Easter 2023

This year again Passover and Easter are almost concomitant. That means that we can celebrate the gift of our feasts at the same time, rejoicing for ourselves and for others.
So, what will this year’s matza taste like? What “affliction“ will it designate? What freedom will we long for? The Hebrew word “Taam” connotates both taste and meaning.

The Importance of the Jewishness of Jesus for Interpreting the Gospels

Ervin Budiselić. In the first part of the paper, we will address certain theological and historical reasons for the exclusion of the Jewishness of Jesus from both Judaism and Christianity. In the second part, we will discuss the importance of the Jewishness of Jesus for understanding the worldview context of the biblical authors. In the last part, as a case study, we will demonstrate through the interpretation of Matthew 16,13‑20 (the issue of »the rock«) and Luke 11,1‑4 (the Lord’s Prayer) through »Jewish eyes« that we can gain a different and even better interpretation of these two texts that better fit the context of the biblical writers.
