The director of the Jewish studies program knew in September that Mel Gibson�s film "The Passion of the Christ" was going to be a controversial topic.
Gordon Young, along with five other experts, will analyze some of the key issues that are raised in the film at 7:30 p.m. today in Class of 1950 Lecture Hall, Room 224.
Bob Bloom, film critic for the Journal and Courier, will be the moderator for the lecture. Zev Garber, professor of Jewish studies and philosophy at Los Angeles Valley College; Gordon Mork, professor of history; John Pawlikowski, professor of ethics and director of the Catholic-Jewish Studies Program at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago; Stuart Robertson, pastor of Faith Presbyterian Church and lecturer in biblical Hebrew and literatures; and Young, associate professor of ancient near eastern and Mediterranean history will present their lectures.
I wish that the local coverage of such events would include a summary article afterwards. This doesn't seem to happen very often and some of us would like to know what was said. Exponent reporters please take note.
