SURJ Faith Webinar: Rome Will Destroy Us: Resisting Anti-Judaism in John
The Lent 2020 lectionary readings from the Gospel of John are challenging for Christians trying to counter anti-Jewish/anti-Semitic interpretations of these stories. Tune in to this webinar, led by SURJ’s National Faith Coordinator Rev. Anne Dunlap, to explore alternative readings. In a time when anti-Semitic violence is on the rise, Christians have a responsibility to dismantle anti-Jewish/anti-Semitic readings of the Bible. And given the key role anti-Semitism plays in upholding white supremacy, for white Christians this responsibility is even more pressing. Register for the webinar here.
