From Biblical Apocalypse to US Foreign Policy In Jerusalem

Feedback form is now closed.
This session will explore biblical texts that discuss the apocalypse, proposing that Evangelical Christian interpretations of these texts have a significant influence on US foreign policy. Careful readings of the biblical books of Job, Second Zechariah, and other often-overlooked texts will help explain current policy towards Israel, the Palestinians, and other regional powers.
