I am coming to realize that many people have the mistaken notion that Christianity is completely separate from Judaism. This is inaccurate. Christianity does not stand apart from Judaism and Judaism does not stand apart from Christianity (although today’s devout Jews do not believe that “Christianity” – the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Christ – have happened yet).
It is like an hour glass. One half of the hour glass is Judaism; the other half is Christianity. The middle part through which all sand passes is the Christ. Each half is meaningless without the other.
