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

Hi Hannah!

I found that difference to be really interesting as well! Along with your point, Jewish theology believes God gave us the Torah for our purpose of being able to follow it. As Christians, we believe that the Torah was another proven point God was making that we can’t live up to His standards no matter how hard we try. We are sinful and depraved and without Jesus we could not do it on our own. I agree that there are many similarities despite our differences. Both Christians and Jews believe that obedience to God is extremely important, however for Christians, we believe that works don’t get us saved but that they are the byproduct of our faith.

Thank you for sharing!
