Chapter Summary

This chapter investigates whether the exegesis of Psalms 72 and 24 can contribute to this refined model of interaction between Judaism and Christianity. First, it deals with Justin Martyr's treatment of Ps 72 (chapter 1), to be followed by the Jewish interpretations of the same Psalm up to the time of Justin (ch. 2). The influence of Christian interpretations of the Psalm from the second century onward is traced in Jewish literature from that period on (ch. 3). Extolling the figure of king Solomon appears to be the major exegetical key to this Psalm on the Jewish side. Finally, the chapter deals with the Christian application of Ps 24 to Christ and the subsequent Jewish application of this Psalm to king Solomon as well, but in a highly derogatory way (ch. 4). This latter device is explained by the author as a clear indication of Christian influenced upon Jewish exegesis.
