Reply To: Did any of the similarities or differences between Christian and Jewish theology surprise you? If so, which/why?

I also thought that the part on the commandments in the new testament was really interesting and shocking. However, on the other hand, Jesus said that the entire law can be summed up into one “to love your neighbor as yourself.”

I also think that this course has taught me about the value of the law. Jesus believed in the value of the law because he thought it was worth his life to fulfill it. Do I value the law like that? There’s so much to learn from Jewish theology.
