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)

Fr. Carlo Colonna, sjIf we wish to grasp the meaning of God's Plan in history with regard to Israel, we must go far beyond the issues relating to the present political Israel or any other temporal  vision regarding Israel. We must grasp the role Israel has in God's Plan in the last days of history, wherein we have entered with the end of the time of the nations and the beginning of the time of Israel as God’s nation called in the end times to accept Messiah.

Rina GeftmanEvery time that I am asked to speak about Israel - and this happens often - I feel at first overwhelmed by the greatness and complexity of the subject. And so I simply try with my listeners to look at Israel, the Israel of yesterday, of today, and that of the hope of tomorrow.

World's largest Israeli flag (near Masada)St. Jerome wrote long ago that "ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ." Today, largely because of a widespread ignorance of Scripture, God's unique calling to the Jewish people is increasingly delegitimized and denied, and at the heart of this delegitimization stands their biblical connection to the Land of Israel.

Jews studying the Torah….In the meantime, Israel retains its own mission. Israel is in the hands of God, who will save it “as a whole” at the proper time, when the number of the Gentiles is complete….the evangelization of the Gentiles was now the disciples’ particular task…. (Benedict XVI, Jesus of Nazareth, Vol 2, pp. 44-46).

Pope Benedict and chief Rabbi of Rome Riccardo di SegniThe purpose of my speech is to point out what the change in the relationship between Jews and Christians is about, and especially to show that in this change and in some prophetic events taking place in the world today between Christians and Jews, the heavenly Father is carrying out His plan in history looking more and more towards the day when Christ will return in glory to fulfill the Father's plan upon the world.

The Mountain of the LordIch möchte drei Bilder vorstellen, eines aus dem Alten, die beiden anderen aus dem Neuen Testament, die den einzigartigen göttlichen Plan zum Ausdruck bringen, der Juden wie Christen umfasst: der Berg, auf dem sich alle Völker der Welt als Pilger einfinden; die Mauer, die einst die Menschheit teilte und schließlich von Jesus Christus niedergerissen wurde; der Baum, der durch eine Wurzel genährt wird und in der Fülle seiner Blätter erstrahlen soll.

Israel and PalestineIn the Catholic Church, disagreements are commonplace over a whole range of issues, be they political, social, economic, religious or historical, but at the end of the day these differences of opinion can be resolved through amicable discussion, prayer and a sense of fellowship and family in Christ. There is one issue, however, that divides so deeply that it has the potential to create permanent separation, and this is the issue of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.

Saint PaulFor most Jews, Saint Paul was a renegade Jew remembered with bitterness for the criticism he aimed at the Jewish religion after he became an ardent follower of Jesus of Nazareth. Perhaps it is time for this negative view of Paul to be balanced by the solid defence of the Jewish people that he wrote in the mid 50’s of the first century C.E., in a letter to the Roman church.

Robert SungenisOn September 2, 2009, Catholic apologist Robert Sungenis published a document entitled "The Erroneous Teachings of Catholics for Israel” in which he directly attacks the legitimacy of our apostolate. This document states that on the Catholics for Israel website “various and sundry claims about the Jews and Israel are being disseminated as Catholic Teaching” but these, according to Sungenis, are “not Catholic teachings.” The following is our response to Sungenis' attacks.

IsraelGelegentlich höre ich, wie Katholiken über eine Pilgerreise ins Heilige Land reden, und ich muß zugeben, daß mich etwas dabei etwas irritiert. "Warum sollte das einen irritieren?" könnte man fragen, "Was ist dabei, wenn Katholiken das Land Jesu und die Wiege ihres Glaubens besuchen?" Natürlich ist nichts falsch daran, wenn Katholiken das Land Jesu besuchen.Die Wortwahl ist es, die mich irritiert...
