The King’s University is pleased to announce that our new Master of Practical Theology concentration in Antisemitism and Jewish Advocacy degree (MPT-AJA) will be offered during the Fall 2021 semester. This concentration is designed to equip students with the knowledge and expertise to engage antisemitism in the Church and public square.
“Every church needs a watchman on the wall when it comes to antisemitism and every one of these people needs to be properly trained” says TKU Director of Messianic Jewish Studies, Dr. David Rudolph. “The MPT-AJA vision is to provide this training and to equip Christians and Messianic Jews to serve in, and develop, Jewish advocacy ministries.”
The ADL’s most recent Audit of Antisemitic Incidents in the United States “recorded more than 2,100 acts of assault, vandalism and harassment, an increase of 12 percent over the previous year. This is the highest level of antisemitic incidents since ADL’s tracking began in 1979.”
TKU stands in solidarity with the Jewish people against antisemitism and we are committed to training those whom God has called to help lead the global Church in this area. The MPT-AJA concentration is accredited with the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) and will be offered online, with most of the courses also available on ground.
“The King’s University is the only educational institution in the world with an MPT-AJA degree,” says Dr. Rudolph. “We hope students will pray about joining us this fall as we launch this program.”
