This lecture is part of a course from The Great Courses called Jesus and His Jewish Influences taught by Professor Jodi Magness, Ph.D.. This course and over 300 other courses can be accessed with a subscription to The Great Courses Plus.


During the 4th century BC, Alexander of Macedonia made an incredible push into the Far East, leaving ripples in his wake that had an impact across many different cultures. In this free lecture provided by the Great Courses, Professor Jodi Magness discusses Alexander’s influence on ancient Palestine, and the various legends that came up about his supposed time in the region. Professor Magness also uses scriptural citations to demonstrate how the ancient Jews drew parallels between Alexander the Great and Jesus Christ, using the former as a semi-divine precursor to the new Christian era.
