Interreligious Dialogue and Jewish-Christian Relations

The then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, offers a theological perspective on the contemporary encounter of religions, and particularly of Judaism and Christianity. ?The figure of Christ,” he writes, ?simultaneously unites and divides Israel and the Church: it is not in our power to overcome this division, but it keeps us together on the way to what is coming and for this reason must not become an enmity.” Reprinted with permission from Communio: International Catholic Review, 25, no. 1 (1998).
