    Gaia, you were asking about the difference in Judaism and Christianity – so here’s my high school understanding (it is Easter after all)…

    The Holy Bible has two books and there is a golden thread that runs throughout them from Genesis Chapter 1 to Revelation Chapter 22, and that is Jesus. The first book is written in Hebrew and it is about The Promise. The second book is written in Latin and it is about the fulfilment of that Promise. The Bible is for the Jews first, and then the Gentiles. Anyone reading this who is a Jew-hater, get over it, they are God’s chosen people, God made a Covenant with them through Abraham. They will be saved.

    The difference between Jew and Gentile is a mark in the flesh, and the Law. All who are not Jew are Gentile. The Ten Commandments were given to the Jews not the Gentiles. The Gentiles stand condemned, the Law will not save them, and nothing they do in their own strength will save them either. But, when God made His Covenant with Abraham, the promise included two sets of people, those who bear God’s mark ‘in their flesh’, and ‘all nations’ blessed in Abraham and his seed. When the seed, Jesus, came to fulfil the Promise of the suffering saviour, the Jews did not accept Him because His meekness was abhorrent to them. God therefore closed their eyes until the appointed time, and this is why their book stops at the Old Testament.

    The Old Testament was the time of Law, Jesus fulfilled the Law on the Cross, the New Testament is Now, its True message is Grace. The wages of sin is death, but God accepts a substitute. Jesus paid the ultimate price for our sins with his Blood, a perfect lamb without blemish sacrificed. The Old Testament was a foreshadowing of things to come, this can be seen in Abraham’s offering of Isaac. We are in the time of Grace – that is the ‘Good News’ of the Gospel. All we have to do is accept the free gift that Jesus secured for us. That, on the face of it should be easy, but it would appear to be the hardest thing. It means admitting in our own strength we fail, that only trusting in Jesus and what He did can we be saved. The price has already been paid, the Law fulfilled, do you wish to pay-again? Pagan.

    The door of Grace will not remain open forever. Like the offer Noah made to the other people before the flood when he was building his Ark. When the door is shut, if you are on the outside you will be left to your own strength to save yourself. This world is about distracting you from this decision until it is too late.
