Christianity and Judaism are different religions. Why is that? After all, Jesus and the apostles were all Jews. What was the nature of the Judaism that prevailed in the 1st century AD? What was the view of God? How was Jesus Christ related to the Jewish God? How should biblical monotheism be interpreted in the light of Jesus’ claim to be the Son of God send from heaven? What happened that led to Christians writing by the mid-second century treatises against the Jews? These and more questions are addressed by Bray. The relationship with Judaism is further explored in the Christians' use of the Hebrew Scripture, the Septuagint, and Jewish biblical interpretation (Midrash and pesher).
