By Matthew A. Tapie,Pim Valkenberg

The query of even if Thomas Aquinas's theology is supersessionist has elicited deep confrontation between students. a few retain that Aquinas is the standard-bearer of a supersessionist church that undermines Judaism, whereas others carry that Aquinas avoids supersessionism altogether. but the dialogue over even if Aquinas's theology is supersessionist has no longer continually conscientiously interrogated the time period "supersessionism," nor has it taken under consideration a few of Aquinas's so much correct texts as regards to Israel and the Church: his commentaries on Paul's letters. Drawing upon the Pauline commentaries, Aquinas on Israel and the Church argues that whereas Aquinas's most typically articulated view is that Jewish worship is discontinued after the eagerness of Christ, Aquinas additionally complex perspectives that set this into query, and in ways in which help modern Christian teachings that verify the price of postbiblical Judaism.

"Matthew Tapie conscientiously analyzes the terminology of supersessionism and develops a operating definition that allows us to parent the tensions within the writings of Thomas and to appreciate the rival exams of his sleek interpreters. Guided through his insightful observation, we come to work out a Thomas who's either a son of his personal age and a wealthy source for these of our personal instances looking a Christian theology of Judaism that's trustworthy to the educating of Nostra Aetate."
--Mark S. Kinzer, President emeritus, Messianic Jewish Theological Institute, Ann Arbor, MI

"Christians this present day frequently repudiate supersessionism, yet they don't consistently conscientiously learn simply what that's presupposed to suggest. we're in Tapie's debt for remedying this example with targeted connection with the theology of Thomas Aquinas. Tapie's wealthy, thorough, and multidimensional photograph of Aquinas's perspectives on Jewish observance of the ceremonial legislation after Christ is destined to develop into a landmark."
--R. Kendall Soulen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, DC

"Tapie has supplied a definitive learn on Aquinas's complicated and every now and then contradictory studying of Paul as supersessionist or no longer. within the technique, Tapie bargains the clearest educating i've got obvious at the which means of supersessionism in sleek scholarship, from Isaac to Wyschogrod, Nostra Aetate, Levering, Soulen, and masses extra. with out overlaying over ambiguities (in) Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, and Hebrews, he concludes with a sober but hopeful account of the trajectory of Thomas's thinking--an account that are supposed to give a contribution considerably to modern discussions of Judaism and the church."
--Peter Ochs, Edgar M. Bronfman Professor of recent Judaic stories, collage of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA

"The drafters of Nostra Aetate, the 1965 Vatican II record that revolutionized Catholic educating at the Jews, felt that they had to head all of the as far back as Scripture to discover assets for rethinking theological anti-Judaism, so soundly rooted did it appear within the church's culture. Tapie indicates that they ignored extra proximate resources in St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the so much respected experts in Catholicism. The views Tapie has opened are a landmark contribution to the tricky paintings of reconciliation among Christians and Jews."
--John Connelly, professor, college of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA
