The Arab-Israeli Conflict

It seems like the conflict that never ends! To grasp the meaning and significance of the perpetual turmoil, it is necessary to study this conflict from both a political and historical perspective but also with biblical and prophetic insights. This Yeshiva will do so and also interact with the different arguments and issues current in the news and in popular culture.

Information and registration:

Course #2: Wednesday & Thursday
Reading Romans after Supersessionism

This course explains from the Letter to the Romans the way Paul thought Jewish covenantal identity continues now that the messianic era had begun. It offers alternative readings to the key interpretive points that lead to supersessionist understandings of Paul’s most important letter. It also addresses Paul’s Israel-centric thinking, the relevance of Abraham for Jews and non-Jews, the continuing role of Torah within the Messianic movement, and his teaching on the social and missional implications of the good news.
