Fall Shapiro Lecture -"Is the Lord not in Zion?" (Jeremiah 8:19): Christian Biblical Interpretations of the Modern Jewish Return to the Land of Israel

December 3, 2014:

More than any other issue in modern Jewish-Christian relations, the state of Israel has provoked intense disagreements. These reflect not just political differences but often profoundly different theologies of the land of Israel and the biblical promises. Dr. Gregerman will explore, from a Jewish perspective, the tensions between contemporary Christians’ broadly positive reappraisals of Judaism and more controversial Christian views of the state of Israel and biblical texts on land and covenant.   Dr. Adam Gregerman is Assistant Professor in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies and Assistant Director of the Institute for Jewish-Catholic Relations at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Recorded live at CTU on November 10, 2014 as part of the Fall Shapiro Lecture.
