Israel und die Kirche

Pope John Paul II in Israel

"Verstockung liegt auf einem Teil Israels, bis die Heiden in voller Zahl das Heil erlangt haben; dann wird ganz Israel gerettet werden... Vom Evangelium her gesehen sind sie Feinde, und das um euretwillen; von ihrer Erwählung her gesehen sind sie von Gott geliebt, und das um der Väter willen. Denn unwiderruflich sind Gnade und Berufung, die Gott gewährt. " (Rom 11:25-29)

Michael WyschogrodGod has tied His saving and redemptive concern for the welfare of all men to His love for the people of Israel. Only those who love the people of Israel can love the God of Israel. Israel is thus God's first-born, most precious in His eyes.

Star of David MosaicThe words "Israel" and "Israelite" occur 77 times in the New Testament. Is "Israel" ever used as a synonym for the Church? How many times does the NT use the expression "new Israel" or "true Israel" to refer to the Church?

Nostra AetateMany today are unaware of the tumultuous history of the Declaration Nostra Aetate and how it was initially intended to exclusively address the relationship of the Church with the Jewish people. This paper examines the origins and development of the Declaration on the Jews and how it eventually became the Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions.

Fr. Peter HockenSince the inception of the Toward Jerusalem Council II initiative, the involvement of Catholics has been a stumbling block for many – both Evangelical Christians with no love for Rome and Messianic Jews who are very conscious of the sufferings of the Jewish people at the hands of the Catholic Church.  Fr. Peter Hocken explains why it is essential for Catholics to be involved in TJCII.

Christian ZionismThe People of God of the flesh stand surety for the People of God in the spirit, not only as witnesses to scriptural promise but as the living root of the Church. As Christians see it, God taught the idea of a People of God through the Jews, and the Jews' continuing existence is both a perpetual reminder of that ­lesson and a guarantee that God keeps his promises.

Israel and the Middle East"Do not take your eyes off of Israel, because I never remove mine from the people who gave me birth.  Nor do I remove my protecting hand.  However, now they are surrounded by enemies, far stronger than any described in the bible, and they are deciding what needs to be done. If only they knew to call on me!  If only they had devotion to me, I could lead them on safe paths."

Fr. Carlo Colonna, s.j.The New Temple will be erected when Judaism and Catholicism will be united to proclaim the only Word of God and the only one Messiah, to sing the only Glory of God that shines in all works performed in both Judaism and Catholicism, in the great works of mercy and in the great works of judgment for the sins of men. So the Nations will know that the true living God is among His people, living in His Temple, which is the Church of Jesus Christ.

Fr. Frédéric Manns, OFMFaced with the "already here" of the Church, Israel is the witness of the "not yet". The Jewish people and the Christian people are thus in a situation of mutual imitation. Christians rejoice in the "already here", while the Jews remember the "not yet".

JerusalemRecent locutions allegedly spoken by Jesus and Mary claim that Israel and the Jewish people are at the center of the dramatic events that are about to unfold in the world. Could these words be a genuine wake-up call to the Church and to the world?
