About this product
- DescriptionHere is the second of three volumes (the first, Revelation: The Torah and the Bible, was published in 1995) whose purpose is to compare and contrast the paramount theological categories of Judaism and Christianity. The volumes provide the faithful of both Judaism and Christianity with informative, factual accounts of how Judaism and Christianity addressed the same issues and set forth their own distinctive program and set of propositions.<br/><br/>While religions speak to individuals in the privacy of their hearts, they also define themselves through social entities such as church, holy people, nation of Islam, kingdom of God. In this book, Professors Neusner and Chilton bring reader to a consideration of Israel in Judaism and Christianity. When Jews call themselves Israel, their initial claim is that they constitute the Israel to whom God gave the Torah. All of those who inherit these Hebrew scriptures, specifically Christians, also claim to form an Israel because they receive these scriptures.<br/><br/>Individual chapters in part one deal with Israel in the theology of Judaism, Israel as a kingdom of priests and holy nation, Israel as family, and Israel as (Christian) Rome. Part two examines Jesus and the absence of Israel; the Israel of James, the community of Q and Peter; and the church (ekklesia) in the Syptic Gospels, Paul, Hebrews, and Revelation.<br/><br/>The volumes in this series are excellent resources for all who wish to deepen their understanding of Judaism and Christianity and the relationship between these two great traditions.<br/><br/>Jacob Neusner, leading scholar of the formative age and writings of Judaism, is Distinguished Research Professor of Religious Studies at the University of South Florida, Tampa.<br/><br/>Bruce D. Chilton, New Testament and Judaic scholar, is Bernard Iddings Bell Professor of Religion at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY.
