2020 Whitley Lecture: ‘Finding a Friend’ The Baptist Encounter with Judaism – Live on YouTube

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, The Scottish Baptist College and Baptists Together are delighted to introduce 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.

The lecture will be streamed live on YouTube from 7pm. The lecture will also be available, using the same link (below), as a recording for later viewing.
