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

Hello Clay,

Thank you for your fascinating and insightful comment on how Christian and Jewish theology differ. When I read about the idea of Progressive Jews thinking the messiah would be a coming of age and not a person, one question stuck out to me. As age, as a whole, can be interpreted in many different ways, how would it be clearly defined and known when a new or ‘messiah age’ would begin? From my understanding, it sounds more like a cultural change than a complete change in views or theology. Who would have a say in these theological circles, and what as a whole would come about from it?
