North Pinellas religion news for March 19

Religion

Was the trial of Jesus a fair one? What roles did Pontius Pilate, religious leaders, the Romans and the Jewish people play in the execution of Jesus? Do accounts in the Gospels contradict each other or inaccurately portray historical events? Has the tomb of Jesus been found?

These questions and others will be addressed at a seminar about Good Friday presented by Congregation Ohr Chadash in conjunction with St. Petersburg Seminary and Yeshiva. The seminar will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday at 3190 Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. in Clearwater.

The public is invited to attend. Admission is by donation.

Congregation Ohr Chadash is a member of the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations and is affiliated with St. Petersburg Theological Seminary and Netzer David International Yeshiva. The synagogue's membership includes devoted Jews and non-Jews who believe in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah and remain committed to Jewish traditions, lifestyle and worship.

Call (727) 726-1472 or (727) 842-1772.
