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

Hi Dylan,
This is such a great point and so surprising. I find it quite fascinating the way the Jewish community views themselves in their relationship with God as well. The question of motivation is quite an interesting one. The Jew believes they are Chosen by the grace of God, and thus they must honor that relationship as God’s chosen people. I wonder how often the fear of punishment rather than love for a holy and perfect God is the motivation of seeking a relationship in the Christian church. I am interested to learn more about this as well.
