Encountering Jesus - Encountering Judaism: A Dialogue, New York: The Crossroad Publishing Company, 1987

Lapide was one of the many Jewish scholars who have occupied themselves in the study of Jesus's life and work, and it is exhilarating to see how far he can go in affirming what Christians want to affirm about their Lord. Yet Rahner never fails to paint out that Lapide does not go far enough The Rahnerian conclusion reads: 'presumably we have not yet satisfactorily said that which we mutually have to say in order that we totally understand each other completely.'
