Example text

All this can be done without recourse to historical reconstruction of points of conscious disagreement between members of both faiths. It seems that many of the projects that Jacob Neusner has initiated with Bruce Chilton since the 90s fall under this category. (See Chilton and Neusner 2000a, 2000b, and 2004; for continued use of the language of ‘debates’ in the work of these scholars, see Chilton and Neusner 1998. ) Properly speaking, the methodology that serves such studies is that of comparative theology.

This need is not reciprocal. Jewish involvement in such projects is thus best understood in light of Christianity’s role in Western society and the role it has played in recent Jewish (European) history. C. I would like to propose that to a significant degree, the centrality of Jewish–Christian relations as an area of study is not the product of a reasoned process, but rather is part of a contemporary mindset that is self-validating. Academia and society at large, in a mutually reinforcing process, have both adopted this area of study as an important area of study.

In amoraic literature, similarly, we find three or four uses of the formula. A slightly larger number of reworkings of earlier materials appear in some of the later midrashim. It is extremely hard to argue for huge efforts or for ideological centrality with such a limited number of sources upon which to base the claim. B. To the quantitative element, we should add an important observation regarding how Two Powers sources are spread between the different rabbinic corpora. In Tannaitic literature the trope is completely absent from both mishna and Tosefta and appears only in the Tannaitic midrashim.
