When Jews and Christians Meet

Overview

When Jews and Christians Meet captures the present state of the Christian-Jewish Dialogue, in which it is taken for granted that good will has been established and that Christians and Jews have a great deal in common. One can now appreciate the basic differences which remain between Judaism and Christianity without fear of giving offense.

Overview

When Jews and Christians Meet captures the present state of the Christian-Jewish Dialogue, in which it is taken for granted that good will has been established and that Christians and Jews have a great deal in common. One can now appreciate the basic differences which remain between Judaism and Christianity without fear of giving offense. With this assumption, a number of Jewish and Christian scholars address several questions. For example, they ask what the future goals of Judaeo-Christian studies should be, and how the ecumenical aspirations of leading Christian and Jewish theologians can be translated into practice on a level which can be appreciated by the men and women in the pews of synagogues and churches.

In addition to such theoretical considerations, the volume offers illustrations of how Bible study can be undertaken in both the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament by Jewish and Christian scholars addressing passages, hitherto considered controversial, with both a commitment to objective scholarship and a rootedness in their respective religious traditions. Jeremiahs prophecy about the New Covenant and some of the Apostle Pauls statements about the Jews furnish the material for that joint enterprise.
