Opening the Covenant

This chapter argues that the construction of a Jewish theology of Christianity can only be undertaken by those willing to move beyond the notion that religious truth is restricted to only one faith tradition. But the openness to a wider truth that underlies that move must eventually — and sooner rather than later — lead us beyond the Jewish-Christian dialogue to a consideration of other religions: to Islam, the third of the Abrahamic faiths, and beyond, to religions outside this tripartite tradition. Thus, the underlying assumptions of the Jewish-Christian dialogue must open the participants to a full multifaith pluralism. This chapter outlines the structure of a possible pluralist theology of Judaism, hinting at the great promise of universal religious understanding and the hope for human fellowship that lies before us.
