The Charles L. Feinberg Center for Messianic Jewish Studies seeks to provide a stimulating academic experience for those interested in:
- the Jewish background of the faith
- biblical interpretation
- archaeological discovery
- the history of Jewish missions
- and other pertinent issues
The Feinberg Lecture Series features scholars devoted to this research and education. This coming March 9, 2023, one of our own biblical scholars, Dr. Daniel Nessim, will address the topic of “The Early Church and the Jewish People: The First Three Centuries.” In particular, he will focus on the early extra-biblical writings of Jewish believers and the emergence of supersessionism.
Dr. Nessim holds an MA from Regent College and a PhD in Theology and Religion from the University of Exeter (England). His studies focused on the life of the earliest believers and their faith. He is the author of Torah for Gentiles? What the Jewish Authors of the Didache Had to Say.
Dr. Nessim is an excellent communicator who has spoken extensively in Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Israel. Each lecture will include ample time for questions and discussion.
