The Institute of Advanced Theology Lenten Lecture Luncheon Series with Bruce Chilton: The Sons of Herod, Jesus, and the Rabbis
Chapel of the Holy Innocents
12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
The Sons of Herod, Jesus, and the Rabbis
This spring's series will consider the dynamics of political power that shaped Jesus' perspective and finally caused his death.  The sons of Herod the Great, Antipas and Philip, were the principal rulers affecting Jesus in Galilee.  His dificulty with their policies comes to expression in much of Jesus' teaching, and finally caused him to escape their influence and pursue his aim in Jerusalem.  Even there, however, longstanding ties between the Herodians and the Rome regime represented by Pontius Pilate.

Box Lunches will be provided at 12:00 noon. The lunch cost is yet to be determined.  Lunch reservations are required by calling 845-758-7279 or e-mailing The  Lecture Series is free and open to the public.
