LOVING JEWISH NEIGHBORS is a seminar for Christians who want to understand and honor Jewish neighbors. It navigates through a maze of conflicting information and stereotypes, then equips Christians with biblical solutions to challenges that have vexed Jewish-Christian relations for over two-thousand years.
This graduate-level seminar is taught by one of Christianity’s preeminent scholars of Judaism, and designed for grassroots Christians without formal theological training. All will be informed, challenged and inspired.
Sessions are October 7, October 14, and November 18.More details and registration.
INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Marvin R. Wilson
NIV Bible translator and acclaimed author of Our Father Abraham: Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith (made into an award-winning PBS documentary), Dr. Wilson is currently Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies at Gordon College. About his most recent book Exploring Our Hebraic Heritage, the Jewish intellectual Prof. Susannah Heschel, daughter of the legendary Jewish theologian, Abraham Joshua Heschel, writes,
“For two thousand years, we have longed for a Christian scholar of Judaism as sensitive and knowledgeable as Marvin Wilson, and his work fulfills our hopes. Insightful and deeply learned, this book is a remarkable example of a Christian theology that affirms Judaism with respect and appreciation.”
—Prof. Susannah Heschel
