your body of work?
A-JL: My doctoral dissertation was
on the depictions of Jews in the Gospel
of Matthew. My primary responsibility
at Vanderbilt Divinity School is teach-
ing the New Testament to candidates
for Christian ministry. My lifelong goal
has been to eliminate both anti-Jewish
attitudes and teachings found in some
Christian contexts and to eliminate
anti-Christian comments I have heard
in some Jewish contexts.

JN: How do you practice Judaism,

and how do you connect to other
A-JL: I am a member of Sherith
Israel, an Orthodox congregation in
Nashville, although I am decidedly
un-Orthodox in many ways. I am also
fluent in most branches of Christianity.
Vanderbilt Divinity School is non-
denominational, which means I am
teaching students from across the
Christian spectrum.

JN: Does Islam enter into your work?

A-JL: After graduate-school work in
Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, Coptic and
Syriac, along with French, German and
smatterings of Latin and Italian, a fac-
ulty member suggested I learn Arabic.
I declined because I did not think that
I would need Arabic to do work on
Christian origins. I do not do much

JN: How does your family
approach religion?
A-JL: With appreciation, celebration,
curiosity. My husband (Jay Geller) also
holds a doctoral degree in religion,
with a specialization in Judaism and
modernity, the Shoah and European
Jews, such as Freud, Heine, Walter
Benjamin and Kafka.
