Join Iliff School of Theology and St. John’s Cathedral Denver for the 2024 Everding Lectureship featuring Adam Gregerman, Ph.D., Professor of Jewish Studies, Dept. of Theology and Religious Studies & Associate Director, Institute for Jewish-Catholic Relations, Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
Dr. Gregerman teaches Jewish Studies at Saint Joseph’s University, a Jesuit school, and is a scholar of Jewish-Christian relations. He focuses on Christian theologies of Judaism in diverse settings, from antiquity to the present, and has a commitment to continuing the slow process of rapprochement between these long-estranged traditions that began only half a century ago. Like Iliff’s respected Professor Pamela Eisenbaum, Dr. Gregerman studies the New Testament (he is a contributor to The Jewish Annotated New Testament) and later Christian writings on Jews and Judaism, covering topics such as mission and conversion, theologies of the land of Israel, and covenant. His many papers can be accessed here: https://sju.academia.edu/AdamGregerman.
The Everding Lectureship has been generously sponsored each year by the late Lee Everding in honor of Iliff’s first Dean of the Faculty, Dr. Ed Everding. It is our pleasure to continue her legacy so that the public may hear from scholars who explore the many dimensions of interfaith relationships between major traditions, particularly those that trace their roots to the patriarch Abraham
