The Jewish Nature Of The First Century Church, Barry D. Fike Sep 2015

The Jewish Nature Of The First Century Church, Barry D. Fike

Barry D. Fike

“When men realized that the teaching of God was no heritage that one accepts passively but rather a heritage that has to be won, they began to see this relationship to the Bible as a religious obligation. It became a supreme commandment to “study”, to explore the Scriptures. To explore means to consider the Bible as a challenge rather than a gift…..The duty to “explore” requires further rethinking: each end becomes a new beginning and each solution a new problem…Once Today’s Church is fully aware of the vast importance of learning, it too will realize that it ...

With the rise of the internet and electronic communications, the world has witnessed a rise in so-called “on-line communities.”  These on-line communities represent a loosely connected family of sorts where people interact with each other via electronic resources.  As a result of these things, many Christian communities have attempted to build a “church community” in an on-line environment.  Paul describes the church as a community in most of his letters, and in some letters he even describes the church as a body and a bride.  The language Paul uses is very relational and almost physical.  How would Paul respond to ...

Jewish Perspective, Asher Finkel Ph.D. Nov 2005

Jewish Perspective, Asher Finkel Ph.D.

Rabbi Asher Finkel, Ph.D.

Almost two millennia of confrontation, vilification and recrimination marked the relationship of the offspring Christianity and its mother religion, Judaism from the first century. Now, a new chapter of the encounter has opened since Vatican II with a papal declaration on the relation of the Church to Judaism and to non-Christian religions. A meaningful dialogue of mutual respect was pursued that led to the apologetic reconciliation and positive reorientation to the common Biblical tradition of Jews and Christians. The encounter has now changed from past relationship of disputation and intolerance to seeking understanding from the ground of faith in canonical ...


Jews And Judaism In The Medieval Latin Liturgy, Lawrence E. Frizzell D.Phil., J. Frank Henderson Ph.D. Dec 2000

Jews And Judaism In The Medieval Latin Liturgy, Lawrence E. Frizzell D.Phil., J. Frank Henderson Ph.D.

Reverend Lawrence E. Frizzell, S.T.L., S.S.L., D.Phil.

Seasons of the liturgical year and particular ceremonies are discussed in some detail to present the impact of the liturgy on the perception of Catholics regarding their Jewish neighbors.
