Correction about Dwight Pryor

In my farewell posts to the founder of the Centre for Judaic Christian Studies during the past few days, I want to make a correction about the late great Dwight Pryor. He never had a doctorate or was a “Dr”. That was my doing and I was incorrect and I offer my apologies for the error. One bloggist who specialized in Messianic Judaism-Hebraic-heritage Christianity explains:

One of my earliest exposures to the Jewish roots of my faith came from hearing four Christian scholars at one conference (the Jerusalem Conference, hosted by Dr. Moseley) back in 1998. This was an event I was to attend repeatedly in the subsequent years. The scholars who taught those first few years were:

Did you notice anything about that list? All of the men held a doctorate, but Mr. Pryor. All of the men were authors, except for Mr. Pryor. But these things didn’t make Mr. Pryor any less of a scholar, or of any less caliber than any of these other men. In fact, Mr. Pryor received great respect from all who knew him. In many ways, these other scholars owe their achievements in some part to Mr. Pryor. He was a mentor to Dr. Moseley, and helped Dr. Wilson with the publication of his book. He also helped with the publication of the joint effort of Dr. Blizzard and David Bivin, Understanding the Difficult Words of Jesus: New Insights From a Hebrew Perspective.

As I have said, I acknowledge this error on my part and will make further corrections.

The late Dwight Pryor’s message on The Resurrection

Not too long ago, I posted about the passing of founder and President of the Judaic Christian Studies, Dr. Dwight A. Pryor. I have listened to a podcast on his site about Jesus’ Resurrection and Our Place in The World to Come. One topic that gets me excited is: Resurrection—when Jesus was raised and the gift that he gave and still gives to those who believe. Dr. Pryor’s physical body may have been demised but he is right now at this minute, awaiting that day when spirit and body are reunited once more: glorified and eternal: this is the reality to come. I hope you will enjoy this recommended message.

Personal condolences to the Pryor family and the Center of Judaic Christian Studies

Dwight A Pryor: 1945-2011

We at  Life After WCG: A Spiritual Pilgrimage of an Independent Believer give sincere heartfelt condolences to the family of Dwight Pryor, the founder and President of the Centre for Judaic Christian Studies, and all associates no matter how big or small who have been affiliated with his organization.  Mr. Pryor’s battle with a lengthly illness had ended in the manner least expected on February 5, 2011. Those of us who took a very strong interest in the Hebraic heritage and origin of the Christian faith have felt a strong sense of loss with one less voice in the movement. From an eternal perspective, we rejoice that Mr.Pryor’s spirit has returned to his Maker and look forward to the promises that believers like Mr. Pryor will have spirit and body reunited in resurrection being in an eternal glorified state. It is my prayer and hope that JCS will continue to strive on as an organization without it’s founder and it will only achieve greater success—more than Mr.Pryor would ever imagine. May the Lord comfort all during this time of loss.
