Christianity From The Jewish Perspective
The Theology of
Christianity is based on that of Judaism. Both share the same God and
Christians say that Jesus is the Messiah predicted in the Old Testament. Yet
many conservative Evangelical Christians today cannot understand why Jews
donít accept Jesus. According to the Evangelists all the predictions came
true and Jesus did everything that was predicted--it is the Jewís own
Scriptures--canít they read?
Hauw Tio Hiong,
our Assistant Librarian, will share some of the arguments of the Jews. We
will see in what way Christianity has borrowed from Judaism and how the
original meaning of these concepts has been replaced by the early Christians
and taken for granted by latter-day Christians. Finally, because of what
happened to Jesus, we will also look at how the Jews have been treated by
the Christians in the past.
