Can Catholicism Validate Jewish Biblical Interpretation?

Jon D. Levenson

Abstract


This article analyses the Pontifical Biblical Commission's 2001 study, The Jewish People and Their Sacred Scriptures in the Christian Bible and its significance for Christian-Jewish relations. While praising the study for addressing a large and complex issue, the essay raises some questions about particularity and relativism, elements of supersessionism, and inter-textuality.
