Too often, the hegemonic position of Christianity in society and discourse means that Christians speak for other viewpoints, concoct straw man arguments, or employ appointed representatives of the "other" rather than actually listening to others articulate their own viewpoint. And, as shocking as it may be to some Christians, Jewish texts make plenty of sense without a Christian interpretation glossed over them.

Although, to be fair, the concept of the Trinity is a notorious pickle! Beyond differing over whether Jesus was the Messiah or not, Jewish and Christian theologies also differ on the essential nature of humanity original sin and God the unity of God.

The chapter "Ecumenicism and Dialogue C. But it also turns on its head an argument I had always heard growing up as an evangelical Christian. I had always been told to believe in Jesus because the disciples, who had seen Jesus firsthand, believed in Jesus and were willing to give their lives as martyrs for what they witnessed. I will say that the chapter, "Behold the Man: The Real Jesus," misquotes one verse John and takes another verse entirely out of context Luke , where he puts the words of a king in a parable in the mouth of Jesus, a gross misreading of the text.

He also only quotes the King James Version of the New Testament, which is not only a poor translation of the original Greek but is also based upon an impoverished set of original manuscripts. In sum, this book is an important counterpoint to the theological anti-Semitism that assumes Christians know better how to interpret the Torah than Jews do, or that it is "spiritual hard-heartedness" that keeps Jews from believing in Jesus rather than it simply being Jews holding to the integrity of their own religious system.

Christians are obviously free to believe what they want, but the supercessionism or sense of being superior to Judaism must be avoided at all times, and all the more so in this era where such thought could feed into dangerous ideologies.
