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
03 Dec 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.
