Chapter Summary

In ancient and medieval times disputations concerning propositions of religious truth defined the purpose of dialogue between religions, particularly Judaism and Christianity. Disputation went out of style when religions lost their confidence in the power of reason to establish theological truth. An opportunity to renew the rigorous disputation of medieval times presented itself with the advent of Pope John XXIII and Vatican II. In A Rabbi Talks with Jesus, the author undertakes seriously the claim of Jesus to fulfill the Torah and weigh that claim in the balance against the teachings of other rabbis-a colloquium of sages of the Torah. The authors' goal is to help Christians become better Christians, because they may come to a clearer account of what they affirm in their faith, and to help Jews become better Jews, because they will realize there, that God's Torah is the way to love and serve the one God.
