The King’s University will host distinguished author and internationally acclaimed leader in the Messianic Jewish movement, Rabbi Daniel Juster, for a series of lectures January 16-18. The three evening lectures, taking place at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, are open to the public and free of charge. Juster’s lectures will discuss several foundational themes of Messianic Jewish theology, including eschatology, the call of the Jewish people, and the definition of Israel and the Church.
“Rabbi Juster is a gifted teacher and spiritual father within the Messianic Jewish community,” says Dr. David Rudolph, director of the Messianic Jewish Studies (MJS) program at TKU. As a Messianic Jewish theologian and visionary, Juster has been involved in founding key institutions in the Messianic community, including the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations (UMJC), the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute (MJBI), and the MJS program at The King’s University.
Juster has also authored numerous books on theology, Israel and the Jewish people, eschatology, discipleship and leadership. One of his most notable books, “Jewish Roots,” is widely recognized as a foundational work on Messianic Judaism.
In his current role, Juster serves as the founding director of Tikkun International, a network of congregations and ministries in the United States and abroad dedicated to the restoration of Israel and the church. His experience also extends to pastoral ministry, as he served as the senior pastor of Beth Messiah Congregation for more than two decades. He and his wife Patty currently reside in Jerusalem, Israel, where he supports the Messianic movement worldwide.
“From its beginnings, The King’s University has been committed to blessing the Jewish people and the Messianic Jewish community in particular,” Rudolph shares. “It is part of our DNA.”
The King’s University is one of only a few UMJC approved schools for training rabbis and teachers in the Messianic community. TKU’s Messianic Jewish Studies program began in 2007 through the vision of Dr. Jack Hayford, TKU’s founder, with the support of Rabbi Jonathan Bernis of Jewish Voice Ministries International, and the board of the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, which at the time included Rabbi Juster, Dr. Wayne Wilks and Dr. Ray Gannon.
The University hopes that Juster will be the first of many honored speakers to be invited to enrich and interact with their students, faculty, and the community in the future.
