Jesus, the Church, and Israel

Jesus, the Church, and Israel

(p.162) 11 Jesus, the Church, and Israel
Salvation for All

Gerald O'Collins, SJ

Oxford University Press

This chapter highlights the role of Jesus for human salvation, the function of the Church in communicating salvation, and the place of Israel in the divine plan of salvation. The original followers of Jesus held him to be the unique and universal Saviour because only Jesus can save men and women in all times and places. His death and resurrection, along with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, confirmed his love to mankind. Moreover, Church plays an important role in communicating salvation. It is the place where the sons of God can communicate with him through prayers. It also mentions that Israel remains at the heart of Christianity, since Jesus was and remains the Jewish Mesiah, born of a Jewish woman.
