The Holy Hand, Empires and the Bible: A Palestinian Christian Perspective
Rev. Dr. Munther Isaac
This lecture examines how Western Christianity has related, and continues to relate, to the land and people of Palestine over the years. It will analyze both the attitudes and theologies of churches vis-à-vis Palestine and the Palestinians and how the Bible was used over the years as a tool by the different empires to justify these attitudes and theologies. This lecture will focus on the recent phenomenon of Christian Zionism as a focal lens.
