|The People of the Covenant - part 2
|The teaching of Vatican Two on the Jewish people might seem at first sight to be a minor theological adjustment on a borderline issue.
However, the more we dig into the questions that it raises, the clearer it becomes that the place of the Jewish people touches on very foundational issues such as the relationship between the two Testaments and the two covenants, the nature of the Church and the human identity of Jesus.
It is then not surprising that it is taking the Catholic Church some time to work out all the implications of this remarkable transformation in understanding.
