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

Hi Thomas,

Thank you for sharing, this section has definitely revealed a lot of new things to me too. I have so much to learn, and it is exciting- I agree with you I also assumed that Jewish theology was very similar to Christians and Jesus was the only thing that made them significantly different. I didn’t know that Jews believe that the Messiah will be a man or an age, not God. The 800 commandments of the new testament versus the 613 commandments of the old testament were also a shocker and I was curious to know what they are so I looked them up and they truly cover every phase of life in relationship with God and others (Matthew 22:37-40) confirming Jesus words.
