I’m Larry Behrendt, an ex-ex attorney and current software engineer. I’m an aging boomer and denizen of Hollywood, California. I am a committed Jew, if not a classically observant one. My passion is the study of early Christian origins, a choice I once thought was an odd one. But it turns out that many of my favorite scholars in this area ARE Jewish scholars, including Amy-Jill Levine from Vanderbilt and Josh Garroway (MY teacher!) at Hebrew Union College.
I find that as I progress into this study, my admiration for Christianity grows stronger, and my commitment to my own faith grows stronger too. Who knew?
