New PDF release: Aquinas on Israel and the Church: The Question of

By Matthew A. Tapie,Pim Valkenberg

The query of even if Thomas Aquinas's theology is supersessionist has elicited deep war of words between students. a few continue that Aquinas is the standard-bearer of a supersessionist church that undermines Judaism, whereas others carry that Aquinas avoids supersessionism altogether. but the dialogue over even if Aquinas's theology is supersessionist has now not regularly rigorously interrogated the time period "supersessionism," nor has it taken under consideration a few of Aquinas's such a lot correct texts almost about Israel and the Church: his commentaries on Paul's letters. Drawing upon the Pauline commentaries, Aquinas on Israel and the Church argues that whereas Aquinas's most ordinarily articulated view is that Jewish worship is discontinued after the fervour of Christ, Aquinas additionally complicated perspectives that set this into query, and in ways in which help modern Christian teachings that confirm the worth of postbiblical Judaism.

"Matthew Tapie rigorously analyzes the terminology of supersessionism and develops a operating definition that permits us to parent the tensions within the writings of Thomas and to appreciate the rival checks of his smooth interpreters. Guided via his insightful statement, we come to work out a Thomas who's either a son of his personal age and a wealthy source for these of our personal instances looking a Christian theology of Judaism that's devoted to the instructing of Nostra Aetate."
--Mark S. Kinzer, President emeritus, Messianic Jewish Theological Institute, Ann Arbor, MI

"Christians this present day frequently repudiate supersessionism, yet they don't regularly conscientiously learn simply what that's presupposed to suggest. we're in Tapie's debt for remedying this case with specific connection with the theology of Thomas Aquinas. Tapie's wealthy, thorough, and multidimensional photo of Aquinas's perspectives on Jewish observance of the ceremonial legislation after Christ is destined to turn into a landmark."
--R. Kendall Soulen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, DC

"Tapie has supplied a definitive research on Aquinas's advanced and from time to time contradictory analyzing of Paul as supersessionist or no longer. within the approach, Tapie deals the clearest instructing i've got noticeable at the that means of supersessionism in sleek scholarship, from Isaac to Wyschogrod, Nostra Aetate, Levering, Soulen, and lots more and plenty extra. with out protecting over ambiguities (in) Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, and Hebrews, he concludes with a sober but hopeful account of the trajectory of Thomas's thinking--an account that are supposed to give a contribution considerably to modern discussions of Judaism and the church."
--Peter Ochs, Edgar M. Bronfman Professor of contemporary Judaic experiences, college of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA

"The drafters of Nostra Aetate, the 1965 Vatican II rfile that revolutionized Catholic instructing at the Jews, felt they'd to head all of the as far back as Scripture to discover assets for rethinking theological anti-Judaism, so soundly rooted did it look within the church's culture. Tapie exhibits that they neglected extra proximate assets in St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the so much respected specialists in Catholicism. The views Tapie has opened are a landmark contribution to the tricky paintings of reconciliation among Christians and Jews."
--John Connelly, professor, collage of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA

Matthew Anthony Tapie is traveling Assistant Professor of Theology on the Catholic collage of the United States, Washington, DC.
