11 July 2015 5 p.m.

Christianity From The Jewish Perspective

The Theology of Christianity is based on that of Judaism. Both share the same God and Christians say that Jesus is the Messiah predicted in the Old Testament. Yet many conservative Evangelical Christians today cannot understand why Jews donít accept Jesus. According to the Evangelists all the predictions came true and Jesus did everything that was predicted--it is the Jewís own Scriptures--canít they read?

 

Hauw Tio Hiong, our Assistant Librarian, will share some of the arguments of the Jews. We will see in what way Christianity has borrowed from Judaism and how the original meaning of these concepts has been replaced by the early Christians and taken for granted by latter-day Christians. Finally, because of what happened to Jesus, we will also look at how the Jews have been treated by the Christians in the past.

 

18 July 2015 5 p.m.

A Review of the Talks on Superhuman Beings

Time permitting, he will also include an abbreviated  Chinese commentary on the Buddhist Diamond Sutra for reference / comparison.

 

25 July 2015 4 p.m.*

The Doctrine of Cycles
