Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in a lifetime; therefore we must be saved by hope. Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone. Therefore we are saved by love.

In these pages you will find extracts from articles, discussions of issues, and other materials that contribute to further Jewish-Christian Relations. This web site attempts to put forth yet one more voice against the forces which foster hatred and ignorance, by compiling extracts from articles, quotes, dialogues, and other information in a readable and accessible way for all.
Within these pages are issues and discussion to examine truth for the furtherance of education and promotion of dialogue between Judaism and Christianity, and more specifically, resources for Christianity towards the cessation of hate resulting from anti-Judaism.
Therefore, before we begin, let us remember the words of Rev. Martin Niemoeller
To start off - let us examine nine frequently asked questions
about Jewish-Christian dialogue.
The nine questions are asked from a Christian perspective on Jewish-Christian Dialogue.
These questions have been compiled by the ICJS : with original questions found here.
Question 1: Is there a special reason why Christians should be in dialogue with Jews?
Question 2: Of what importance is it to us as Christians that Jesus was an observant Jew?
Question 3: Do Christians and Jews mean the same thing when they talk about "the Scriptures"?
Question 4: Does the New Testament say that God has rejected the Jews?
Question 5: What can we learn from the
history of Christian-Jewish relations about the consequences
of not engaging in dialogue with Jews?
Question 6: Is God in the process of saving both Christians and Jews?
Question 7: In light of this understanding
of salvation, how might we Christians understand John
14:5 - 6?
Question 8: Does dialogue with Jews threaten the integrity of Christian faith?
Question 9: Should Christians evangelize Jews?
