I definitely misunderstood the assingment for the recap of class-time. You can ignore the previous posting. I believe the assignment was to write a bit on what we learned from the time at the seminar on evangelization to Jewish people and how that applies to what we are discussing in class. I think what struck me as most relevant for our class were the ideas that Dr. Dauermann was presenting. He saw the gospel as good news for all the Jewish people in that God has a specific plan for those people. Instead of abandoning their beliefs and customs that are deeply rooted in who they are, those beliefs should be affirmed and reinterpreted in the light of Jesus. This does not mean that they must uproot from their own community in order to join in the body of Christ, but rather the body of Christ joins them where they already are.
