Israël dans la mission chrétienne
Collection Lectio Divina - N° 239
320 pages - oct. 2010
A spirited call for unity between Jews and gentiles as a condition of the Christian mission, Paul’s “Epistle to the Romans” is capable of laying the foundations for new relations between Jews and Christians. The exegetic analysis of the Letter to the Romans in its entirety has permitted the author to show that for Paul, apostle of the gentiles, Israel always played a key role. But can we say that history has given Paul a hearing? Tradition weighs down heavily on the Judeo-Christian dialogue. M.-H. Robert explores the diverse receptions of Rm 9—11 throughout the centuries and by different confessions: the reactions to Israel range from ignorance, denial, repression, interest, goodwill and debate to enthusiasm. In the 20th century, Churches advocated a new vision of Israel, but in their teaching and their priorities, the relation to Israel was left out of their mission. However, benefitting from the irrevocability of God’s call (Romans 11, 29), Israel has a specific mission in the world, shared by the Church in the context of a common mission. The fruit of an innovating idea, this book opens up fascinating perspectives for missiology.
