Theological Issues

  • “We believe in one God – you believe in three gods!”
  • “A man can’t become God – that’s idolatry!”
  • “Atonement for sin? That happens through repentance, charity, and fasting.”
  • “We Jews don’t need a middleman!”

These are some typical responses we Jewish people have given to what Christians believe. They are verbal walls meant to separate Jews and Christians: you have your room, and I have mine.

If we each have our own spaces, it’s time for a home makeover. The Christian doctrines of the Trinity, the Incarnation, atonement through the Messiah’s self-sacrifice all turn out to be Jewish at root. In this section, we’ll explore how and why.
