...When studying the Jewish roots of the Christian faith, we must be careful not to serendipitously weave together first-century and twenty-first-century Jewish traditions. We must not attempt to read medieval or modern-day Jewish practices into the time of Jesus and the disciples. Ancient Jewish literature is a vast and complex field that is often difficult to understand and must be navigated carefully. A respectful and cautious use of Jewish writings, however, can provide an enriching lens to help us see the New Testament in light of its Jewish background.
