Jesus Creed

David Klinghoffer, author of Why the Jews Rejected Jesus, belongs in a troika of authors. Michael Wyschogrod and Irving Greenberg are the other two.

In Commentary magazine, the review of Klinghoffer by Hillel Halkin sets the record straight on the “two covenant” approach and he provides the argument many of us have been asking for: namely, the notion that Judaism and Christianity are essentially the same, with the latter faith designed by God to take the faith of the former into the Gentile world, is a violent disrespect to orthodox believers on both sides.

Here is one quotation: “Indeed, to ask either believing Jews or Christians to acknowledge that God does not care which of the two they are as long as they are one or the other is subtly to demean both Judaism and Christianity in the eyes of their adherents.”
