Chapter Summary

The social teaching of Rabbinic Judaism takes up the narrative of the Torah and recasts it into an account of the norms of Israel's social order. In the authors' Social Teaching of Rabbinic Judaism, vols. I-III, the author identifies three principal social teachings, which encompass the social thought of Rabbinic Judaism as categorically embodied by the Halakhah in norms of public conduct. Rabbinic Judaism and other Judaic religious systems over time share the same Scriptures of ancient Israel with Catholic Christianity and other Christian religious systems. All Judaic and most Christian heirs of Scripture participate in that common heritage of revelation. The chapter shows in a concrete example precisely how disparate the two entities-Church, Israel-are. The social teachings of Christianity in the formative age take account of two authorities with whom Christians engaged, Church and State.

Keywords: Christianity; Halakhah; Rabbinic Judaism; three social teachings
