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

I so appreciate your comment about the different questions that Jews ask. Christians today tend to focus on salvation as a moment or psychological decision, but Jewish thought leans more toward salvation as a process and way of life that leads a person closer to God. I love that you reference the Jewish question ‘How do I get closer to God?” I think that is a more holistic question and we could learn a lot from asking it.
