Anti-Judaism on the Way from Judaism to Christianity

Series:

Peter Landesmann

The differing beliefs that emerged between Christianity and Judaism, especially in the first two centuries AD, were mainly caused by the introduction of heavenly beings in the Jewish religion. This resulted in the predominance of a messiah, who will be sent by God as salvator mundi. Mainly Paul preached and practiced the conversion of pagans to Christianity, without obligating them to practice the Jewish law. In the course of time the baptized pagans represented the mainstream of Christianity which caused a conflict between them and those Jews who practiced the Jewish law but also believed in Jesus as the Messiah. The development of these tendencies is described in this book.

21. Individual peace

Extract

"Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Rom 5:1 NRS). This expression also appears in 2 Cor 13:11 and Rom 15:13. The Hebrew Bible already featured the idea that the just "who love your law" live in peace with God. This expression is assumed to describe the modern term "peace of mind": "Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble" (Psa 119:165 NRS).
