Messianic Jews as a Challenge for Interpreting Jewish-Christian Dialogue

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlePopular


This short article offers a reflection on the challenge which the very existence of Messianic Jewish groups poses to the mainstream Jewish-Christian dialogue. It concludes that this challenge can be seen as constructive and thought-provoking from a dialogical perspective, despite notable ethical (and, for many, also theological) problems with some Messianic-Jewish modes of communication with other Jewish communities.
