After the Evil

In recent years, there has been a debate about whether there is one covenant, with Judaism, onto which Christianity is grafted or whether there are two covenants, one with Judaism, which is primarily social, and one with Christianity, which is primarily with individuals. In fact, the primal covenant, the Noahide covenant, is with humanity, and Judaism and Christianity, like other religions, have their own distinctive voices in response to this. However formulated, it is vital for the church to overcome supersessionism, and the work of scholars such as Pawlikowski are discussed in this connection. It is argued that if we are to think of a difference between the two religions, it may be that Judaism is a religion of the Torah and Christianity is a religion of participation.
