Chapter Summary

In the conversation between Jews and Christians, the two modes of faiths are explained in ethics in the commandment to charity. The similarities and differences between the Jewish and Christian conceptions are based on a brief overview of the different interpretations of the biblical commandment of Leviticus 19,18b, "Love thy neighbor as thyself", are explained. The commandment of charity is found in conjunction with the "Golden Rule" as "the sum of the Torah" as well as the second part of the double commandment of charity. Letter of Aristeas is a report or a legend about the Greek translation of the Torah. In Paul, the focus is on the relationship between sanctification and justification, and the love of those who are justified in Christ, a call to holiness and the imitation of Christ is: because love is the fulfillment of the Torah. The original text of the chapter is in German.
