Abstract: The literature against the Jews (contra Iudeos) was crucially influential in the shaping of Christianity during the centuries following the crucifixion, particularly during the period when Christianity remained outside official Roman toleration. And yet, this phenomenon did not decline in the Middle Ages when Christianity emerged as the supreme power in the western world and Judaism. Despite that community history, the Gospel gives us a literary presentation of the disputes with “the Jews” and makes those disputes the occasion of expounding a Christology for believers. Since Jews and Christians both claim to have God’s Word, do they basically have the same religion? The faith of most religious Jews is called Judaism. It is the oldest of the world’s three great monotheistic religions (that is, religions serving one God). Judaism is the parent of both Christianity and Islam.   Jews vs Christians. Jews are the followers of Judaism and Christians all over the world believe in Jesus Christ as being the Messiah of mankind. However, the fact that Jews and Christians are the followers of two related but separate religions called Abrahamic religions is not the only difference between Jews and Christians.

Such hostility toward Judaism was intensified by a series of disputations between Christians and Jews in the thirteenth and early fifteenth centuries. The first of these confrontations took place in Paris in the purpose of this encounter was to assertain whether the Talmud contains blasphemies against Jesus and the Christian faith.   Christians and Jews in Dispute: Disputational Literature and the Rise of Anti-Judaism in the West (c)Author: Anna Sapir Abulafia. In the time Paul was writing to the Romans there was conflict between the Gentiles and the Jews. Many of today’s scholars have presented a number of likely reasons as to why Paul may have written the book of Romans. One of these believed reasons was for him to address the continued power struggle between the Gentiles and the Jews. forchristssake Faith matters: 7 things Christians, Jews and Muslims share.
