Old Stuff: Israel (Who Cares?)

This is a lecture I had occasion to give at Seton Catholic School, Lexington, Kentucky, in 2012. We explore why the Hebrew Bible, which is the sacred text of the ancient Jewish people, is relevant to people who are neither ancient nor Jewish. The kids at Seton–in this case, 7th and 8th graders–were awesome, and they taught me that you don’t have to dumb down important things to reach kids. If you treat them with respect, they’ll rise to the occasion. And these particular kids are Seton Stars, and if Seton Stars do anything, they rise above!
