In this book Jacob Neusner, argues that the classical documents of Judaism speak extensively about the diverse ways in which we meet God in the world. The counterpart in Christianity, argues Bruce Chilton, is meeting God in the incarnation of Jesus Christ. As heirs to the Scripture of ancient Israel, both Judaism and Christianity identify humanity as the worldly image of God. The two traditions agree that because we are made in God’s image, we see God in the face of one another. The conception of incarnation is therefore as Judaic as it is Christian. The point of difference between the two becomes clear when we ask how incarnation is realized.
