Christian Teaching VI

Seeing Judaism Anew: Christianity's Sacred Obligation,
Ed. Mary C. Boys, Rowman and Littlefield, 2002
Chapter 14, "Covenant and Conversion" (pp. 163-174), page 166

However, Joann Spillman says, Jews and Christians do not think of salvation in the same terms.

The term itself is rarely used in Jewish theology and there are no direct parallels in Jewish theology to many aspects of Christian doctrines of salvation.

Spillmam is going to go on, during the chapter, to deal with Christian theology and how Christians view salvation. In particular, she is going to ask how Christians ought to view the salvation of Jews. If Jews were to consider this, she contends, they would have different questions.

Does that make the conversation more or less difficult? Is there anything to talk about?
