Session List

Session 1
  • Opening Lecture, Bilateral Ecclesiology & the History of Messianic Judaism: This lecture will introduce the series by describing the current period of transition in the Messianic Jewish movement, and urging the next generation of leaders to draw creatively upon the wisdom of the past as they address the challenges of the future. That wisdom includes bilateral ecclesiology. This lecture will define bilateral ecclesiology, set its emergence in the context of the history of the Messianic Jewish movement, and suggest that this insight has the potential to provide essential guidance for the future. 
Session 2
  • Bilateral Ecclesiology & the New Jewish Landscape: This lecture will look at some of the dramatic changes that are occurring in the Jewish world, and propose future directions for the Messianic Jewish movement that draw from the wisdom of bilateral ecclesiology and take account of those changes.
Session 3
  • Bilateral Ecclesiology & the New Christian Landscape: This lecture will look at some of the dramatic changes that are occurring in the Christian world, and propose future directions for the Messianic Jewish movement that draw from the wisdom of bilateral ecclesiology and take account of those changes.
Session 4
  • Bilateral Ecclesiology & the New Secular Landscape: This lecture will look at some of the dramatic changes that are occurring in secular society, and propose future directions for the Messianic Jewish movement that draw from the wisdom of bilateral ecclesiology and take account of those changes.
Session 5
  • Bilateral Ecclesiology & the Future of Messianic Judaism: This final session will summarize what has already been presented, and advance the discussion by describing several models of Messianic Jewish life that need further attention and development in the coming decades.
