Due to recent announcements from the UK Government, it has been decided that the 2020 Whitley Lecture has been cancelled. It may be rescheduled for an alternative date, and we advise those who may still wish to attend to keep checking our Events page for any further updates.

All of us at Luther King House apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Ever since the horrific events of the Holocaust, the relationship of Christianity to Judaism has been under constant review. Many Christian denominations have made great strides toward a much closer rapprochement with Judaism. This lecture will ask where British Baptists stand in relation to this sea change in Christian-Jewish relations. It will identify potential problems in the theology, exegesis and preaching of Baptists. It will offer examples of friendly engagement between Baptists and Jews, examine possible impediments to the development of a closer relationship, and propose constructive suggestions for deepening the encounter of Baptists with Judaism into the future.

Luther King House and Baptists Together are to delighted to welcome Robert Parkinson who will deliver the 2020 Whitley Lecture. Robert is a student of the Hebrew Bible and is passionate about biblical studies. He is minister of Didsbury Baptist Church and an associate tutor with Northern Baptist College.

Refreshments from 7pm, followed by the lecture at 7.30pm

A pdf leaflet for you to download, print and distribute can be found here. Further details on this and previous Whitley Lectures can be found on the Baptists Together website.
