A Panel Discussion with
Darrell Bock, Randy Newman, and Tom Tarrants

With the sharp rise in Anti-Semitic rhetoric and actions, now is the time to reflect on how to best respond as followers of Jesus Christ.

In this pre-recorded interview with Darrell Bock, Randy Newman, and Tom Tarrants we examine the history of Anti-Semitism beginning from the biblical period through today, the myths and false teachings used to promote Anti-Semitism, and current Anti-Semitic trends.  This will be followed with some suggested ways in which Christians can lovingly, thoughtfully, and truthfully respond to Anti-Semitism.

Date:  Friday, January 19, 2024
Speaker:  Darrell Bock, Randy Newman, and Tom Tarrants
Time:  8:00 – 9:15pm ET
