The Center for Judaic Studies, part of the Liberty University School of Religion, offers students preparing for Christian ministry or service a biblical perspective of the Jewish mission. It also equips the Church in making a biblical response to the Jewish people and the modern State of Israel. Our program in Jewish Studies provides instruction to students at the undergraduate level to prepare them for graduate studies, for Jewish outreach ministries, and for academic careers in the field of Judaic studies.


Explore the Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith
Why Jewish Studies?

The Bible, both the Old Testament and the New Testament, came to us through Jewish hands. Jesus and His disciples were Jewish, as was the Apostle Paul who spearheaded the outreach of the Gospel to the Gentiles. The history of the Church reveals an ignorance of Christianity’s Jewish roots and therefore, a misunderstanding of and an adversarial relationship with the Jewish people. Evangelical Christians have recognized that God chose the Jewish people and the Land of Israel to fulfill His redemptive program for mankind. Since its founding, Liberty University has supported this understanding and the modern Jewish State as evidence of God’s faithfulness to His biblical promises. Training in Jewish studies enables Christian students to impact their world academically, spiritually, and politically with a biblical and balanced worldview of Israel and the Jewish people.

A Note from the Director

“Our goal is to equip students academically and spiritually to serve the Lord in personal and professional ministry with an understanding of God’s plan for Israel and with an awareness of Christianity’s historical relationship and indebtedness to the Jewish people.”
- Dr. Randall Price, Ph.D., Executive Director
