A public lecture by Father (Dr) John Pawlikowski was held at Australian Catholic University’s (ACU) North Sydney Campus last week, on The Christian-Jewish Relationship: Current Theological and Political Challenges.

Father Doctor John Pawlikowski

Fr (Dr) Pawlikowski shared more than 40 years knowledge and experience of the interfaith relationship between Judaism and Christianity.

He specifically discussed the new scholarship and dialogue that delves into the origins of the separation between Judaism and Christianity, the ‘Jewishness’ of Jesus and the new perspectives on the life and work of Paul.

Fr (Dr) Pawlikowski is Professor of Ethics and Director of the Catholic-Jewish Studies Program at the University of Chicago, and President and Chair of the Theology Committee of the International Council of Christians and Jews.

His scholarly works include The Challenge of the Holocaust for Christian Theology, Christ in the Light of the Christian-Jewish Dialogue, Reinterpreting Revelation and Tradition: Jews and Christians in Conversation, Good and Evil after Auschwitz, and Ethics in the Shadow of the Holocaust.

Guests at the lecture included members of the NSW Jewish Board of Education, NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, the Australia Council of Christians and Jews, the Interfaith Commission, the Columbian Mission Institute, St Patrick’s College and Waverly College.
