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

Hey Thomas,
I found this difference particularly interesting as well. Growing up with minimal exposure to Judaism, I believed that when the Jews would claim the Messiah he would be God, just as we perceive Christ. Learning about the commands is also very new to me. Growing up my church community pressed that Jesus freed us from living under the land of the Law. When in truth we have many freedoms but still are commanded through the new testament- just in a different way.
