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

There are few other elements that surprised me while analysing the Jewish x christian traditions. I did not know that the jewish people don’t give much thought to the after life, heaven and hell, or details of the new coming age, as of course the New Testament talks much about hell, but I few in a way the Old Testament talk in a much mor extensive and detailed way about heaver, or in other words, the coming Kingdom of the messiah, or the new age. Prophets like Isaiah, Jeremiah, Zachariah spoke a great deal of this future coming reality, so did Daniel, Ezequiel, Moses and all the other prophets. So This difference was really a surprise for me.
