Fr. Peter Hocken
This course focuses on the framework for the healing of the historical division between the Church and the Jewish people. We will investigate early Christian church movements and false teachings that contributed to the divisions. This includes the notion of Replacement Theology, which is the idea that God has rejected the Jewish people because they rejected Jesus Christ. In addition, the Protestant Reformation, the subsequent rise of denominations, the modern renewal of the Catholic Church, and the Ecumenical Movement will be explored along with the impact of denominations such as the Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements. Finally, we will discuss the groundbreaking importance of TJCII, an initiative that has to do with the Church of the One New Man—of Jew and Gentile together, reconciled, and made one by Yeshua through His cross.
