Adult Forums – Fellowship Hall

Antisemitism: the World’s Oldest Hate Crime

Recent events show antisemitism has raised its ugly head in our society. On the first three Sunday of February, join Neil Leifert, the Director of the Center for Holocaust and Jewish Studies at Penn State Harrisburg, as he explains its origins. Dr. Russell Sullivan, Pastor of Pine Street, will conclude the series on February 23.

February 2 – “Overview of Antisemitism” – What are the origins of Christian and-Judaism? How id this develop into racial antisemitism in the 19th century? As we journey into the 20th century, we’ll note the significance of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the work of Henry Ford and his antisemitic publication, The International Jew.

February 9 – “The Jewish Enemy” – Nazi propaganda vilified “World Jewry” as a “clear and present danger” to German survival. What was their motive for genocide and the Holocaust?

February 16 – “Lingering Ideology” – Jewish conspiracies and the Holocaust denial abound in our world, and antisemitism masks in the guise of anti-Zionism. How can we understand these phenomena?

February 23 – “Does God Only Have One Blessing?” – Dr. Sullivan will propose that we have read the relationship between Christians and Jews incorrectly for centuries. Can we read the Christian story in a new way? How can we counteract antisemitism?

February 21

Adult Forums – Fellowship Hall

The Bible narrates a story of an abusive and violent world in which God’s people—and God—are involved. Two outstanding scholars will explore with us these dimensions of the biblical story.

March 8th: The Exclusivity of the Cross: Is it Good News? –
In this session we will explore traditional theories of atonement and what they say about God. Our teacher, Dr. Sharon Lynn Baker, is Professor of Theology and Religion at Messiah College. She works in the areas of atonement, peace and reconciliation, interfaith theologies, and methods of biblical interpretation. She is the author of Razing Hell and Executing God. Dr. Baker lives in Birmingham, Alabama, where her husband is Professor of Philosophy at Samford University. She has a love/hate relationship with jogging to stay in shape!

March 15th: How Art Redeems Abused Women of the Hebrew Bible: The Story of Hagar
Dr. Susanna Bede Caroselli, a retired art professor from Messiah College, will examine the biblical story of Hagar through the lens of art. Dr. Caroselli received her Ph.D. in art history from Johns Hopkins University. She is a member of the Sisters of St. Gregory, a religious community of the Episcopal Church.

March 22nd: How Art Redeems Abused Women of the Hebrew Bible: The Story of Jephthah
Dr. Caroselli explores the story in the book of Judges of another abused woman, Jephthah.

March 29th: The Inclusivity of the Cross: It is Good News!
Dr. Baker will explore with us an alternate theory of atonement based upon biblical texts and God’s hope for the world. We will discuss why these theological ideas matter to us.
