When Amy-Jill Levine, University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School, looked at the gospels, when she read them, every once in a while Jesus would say something that would take her aback.
- Sell all you have and give to the poor.
- Comments about a fiery hell.
- Hate your mother and your father.
- You Jews are children of the devil.
