The Old Testament has always posed a challenge to Christian theology on account of Judaism’s counter-claim to its rightful possession. In Protestant theology, and especially Reformed theology, the Jewish character of this sacred literature has come to the fore demanding special attention on account of the Reformers’ insistence upon interpretation according to the literal sense of the text. Schleiermacher and Barth each embraced divergent aspects of Calvin’s approach to the Old Testament that came into conflict with one another in the modern era. After close analysis of their positions, a constructive alternative for addressing this set of questions is proposed as the most responsible way of furthering the Reformed heritage for our time in dialogue with Judaism.
