Regarding your quote from Gal 2, Hadassah, I would be careful to not read into the text what is not there. Paul is not upset at Peter because Peter is keeping Torah. How is it, then, that Peter is (in Paul's words) "not living like a Jew"? I apologize for the quotes, but I did not see another way t...

Please understand that I uphold the privileged place of Israel in the plan of God and treasure the foundation on which Christianity is built and the origins from which the Church continues to draw. I am, however, interested in honestly understanding and reflecting on Scripture and the teaching of th...

Galatians...

My Dear Athol, Interestingly, while reading Sacred Scripture earlier this afternoon, Galatians 2:11ff came to my attention. I was drawn back to your point that all the early Jews observed the law zealously. This, of course, is that passage that harkens back to Paul’s advisory role in the Council of ...

Great Quotes...

Wonderful quotes from Cardinal Ratzinger, and a great place to go with this discussion. It would seem useful to put these quotes together with what precedes and what follows them. If anyone is reading along, Athol is quoting from _Many Religious, One Covenant_ by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. Cardinal ...

Ritual and Juridical Observances

Hello Athol: You said: “Neither Jesus nor Paul meant that Jews should now start eating non-kosher food. To think they did shows that one has missed the whole point and slipped back into the mundane.” I think that you’re making a real leap here and that much of Paul’s writing suggests (even states ou...

Hello, Athol: Perhaps I need the longer version of your reply to better understand your point. At the very least, I think need some frame of reference or clarification for the following statement: "For the baptised jew the outward observance of the Torah is the same..." From where do you draw this s...

"Like" One Under the Law

1 Corinthians. Specifically 9:19-20. So without getting into Romans and Hebrews, we can begin here to say that Christians who come from Judaism are certainly not bound by the Law. A related question is this: with the proper understanding of law and freedom in Christ, would it be acceptable for a Chr...

Entirely religiously based? So in your opinion, what role does a Jewish or an Arab nationalism play in current ideas and attitudes over what might be considered strictly faith-based beliefs?

Faith vs. Other?

New to the forum. Hello. Just began a book on the Arab-Israeli conflict which was recommended to me as fairly balanced and manageable. It is appropriately and simply titled _The Arab-Israeli Conflict_ by David Lesch. Early on, he states that there are very recent factors which have nothing to do wit...
