Destiny of Israel, the Church and the Jews, The (Seif 2022)
Dr. Jeffrey Seif, Instructor
In this mini-class, Jeffrey Seif will consider “destiny” and examine Israel and the Jews in light of it.
Scripture can be compared to a Broadway play, one containing two acts that are separated by an intermission. Our Jewish people and friends, know Act 1, the Old Testament, and understand there to be destiny associated with the Hebrew people who are associated with it—but they do not see the New Testament story. Our Christian associates and friends, know Act 2, the New Testament, and understand there to be destiny associated with Yeshua-believing people who are associated with it—but they tend to not see the Old Testament story.
In the Yeshiva at Beth Messiah, Jeffrey Seif will explore both entities’ respective destinies and consider their respective roles in light of those destinies. The Yeshiva will be inter-active. Individuals will have ample opportunities to interact with the instructor and each other, with pride of place given to dialogue not just monologue.
