The lectures are being given by the Graham Inquirers Sunday school class in memory of longtime members Dot Anderson, Judy Kohler, and Barbara Young.

Dr. Levine is University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies, Mary Jane Werthan Professor of Jewish Studies, and Professor of New Testament Studies at the Divinity School and College of Arts and Sciences at Vanderbilt University.

She has been at Belmont UMC before, lecturing on Jesus’ parables and many of us have participated in her annual lecture series at The Temple. A prolific writer and frequent speaker all over the world, she describes herself as a “Yankee Jewish feminist who teaches in a predominantly Christian divinity school in the buckle of the Bible belt.”
