As a student in the four-year Denver Catholic Biblical School, I absolutely agree with you that it is imperative for Christians to understand the history of the Jewish people and their role as the people chosen by the LORD. It is an incredible story -- a miraculous gift -- a breathtakingly beautiful story -- one I feel so blessed to be learning as the basis for all of salvation history. I am deeply saddened that so many Catholics are not taught it, or choose not to learn it -- or do not have access to incredible programs like the Denver Catholic Biblical School. I, too, am learning to see and understand Christ from a Jewish perspective -- and to understand all the ways that he fulfils God's eternal promise to David and his promise to Abraham that he would provide the Lamb. What a wonderful world, what an awesome God -- may we all live by his commandments, so that all goes well with the world.
