Remembering the Covenant: Judaism in an Anglican Theology of Interfaith Relations

Michael Ipgrave

DOWNLOAD COMPLETE ARTICLE PDF

Christian–Jewish relations are widely recognized to be distinctive within the wider field of interfaith relations, but the nature of that distinctiveness is contested. A variety of paradigms are held among Anglicans; the Church of England document Sharing One Hope? (2001) maps out four of these. Contemporary consideration of these relations is increasingly dominated by the issue of attitudes toward the State of Israel. The complexity of Anglican history in this area means that there are three significant strands of thinking on this within the Anglican tradition: the “Messianic,” the “Jewish solidarity,” and the “Palestinian solidarity.” This essay suggests that the theme of a “sacrament of otherness” is a fruitful interpretive key to understanding Christian–Jewish relations today.
