The Word Set Free: Presenting the New Testament in its First-Century Context
This colloquium, marking the recent release of The Synoptic Gospels Set Free: Preaching Without Antisemitism by Boston College professor of theology Daniel Harrington, SJ, explores one of the most important question in Christian-Jewish relations: are the Gospels anti-Semitic? Harrington's talk is followed by responses from Rev. David Michael, associate director of interfaith relations for the Archdiocese of Boston; Christopher Leighton, executive director of the Institute for Christian and Jewish Studies; and Celia Sirois of New Directions, an interfaith education program sponsored jointly by the Anti-Defamation League and the Archdiocese of Boston.
