Sadly, anti-Semitism is on the rise across the globe. Sadder still, some of it comes from Christians. How is it that some who follow Jesus—the Jewish Messiah promised in the Hebrew Bible—could come to regard the Jewish people with prejudice and hostility? Could there be a historical or biblical root beneath this sentiment?
In Divergence, Solberg traces Christian theology and attitudes toward the Jewish people from the New Testament through the writings of the early Church fathers to the Council of Nicaea in AD 325. In the process, he presents the modern Christian with a biblical perspective on anti-Semitism and how they are to treat their Jewish brothers and sisters. Despite its academic subject matter, Divergence offers a compelling read for the average Christian interested in the early history of the faith.
We are all about promoting peace and unity, especially across racial lines. Rob has put together a fascinating historical expedition that challenges a common notion about early Jewish-Christian relations . . . This book has a timely message and some important things to say about Jewish-Christian unity.—Dr. Ed Smith, President, Williamson College
Was there anti-Semitism as we know it today? Was the theology of the New Testament corrupted because of anti-Jewish sentiment? Did the Council of Nicaea exchange the Saturday Sabbath for Sunday worship and Passover for Easter? This compelling historical journey reveals that all was not as you might think.
