My research and publications have two focuses. First, Jewish contexts of nascent Christianity. Here, I continue an already traditional direction of investigating patterns of Jewish thought from late Second Temple period as possible background for the beliefs of Jesus' followers.

Office hours: by appointment (On sabbatical leave March 2017-February 2018)

I wrote my Ph.D. dissertation under the direction of Prof. (emeritus) Michael Stone on early Jewish and Christian exegesis of the book of Daniel and from its completion (1986) the Dept. of Comparative Religion has been my academic home at the Hebrew University. My teaching touches on different aspects of the history of Christianity with an emphasis on the period of the early Church.
