A Jewish Response to Gavin D’costa

The author suggests that Gavin D’Costa needs, first, to take seriously the history of the Christian contribution to Jewish suffering, which cannot be parenthesized as outside history, and, second, to reflect on the positive significance of the Jewish no to Jesus (Moltmann), since both Jews and Christians share the anticipation of the Messiah. The author calls for a “Jewish covenantal pluralism,” arguing that both Jews and Christians participate in God’s revelation and that both participations are in different ways intended by God.
