Beginning next week, I will be teaching a special six-week foundation course for the Messianic Jewish Theological Institute (MJTI) on Jewish Mysticism that will give an academic approach to an important form of Jewish spirituality.
Mysticism plays an important role within Jewish literature and tradition. This class will explore chronologically the roots of Jewish mysticism in the Tanakh; its emergence in apocryphal and extra-biblical literature in the Second Temple period; ecstatic visions and utterances in the New Testament; early rabbinic approaches to secret knowledge; late antique traditions of heavenly ascent and magical power (especially Heikhalot literature); the emergence of Kabbalah in medieval Europe; and modern and pop-cultural forms of Jewish mysticism.
The class is open to anyone and begins Monday, October 29th. The class will be offered both online and onsite at the MJTI Interfaith Center in Los Angeles. The cost is $105 to audit, or $150 for credit. This is the last week to sign up for the class.
