Overview

This book comprises three successive chapters from Yehezkel Kaufman’s Golah ve-Nekhar which, though intrinsically related to the central topic of that work, constitute a distinct unit of its own. The basic difference between Judaism and Christianity is here defined as two forms of covenant being in conflict with each other.

The writings of Yehezkel Kaufman, late Professor of Bible at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, fall into three main categories:

  • Bible studies, of which the four-volume History of the Religion of Israel is the magnum opus
  • Socio-historical analysis of Jewry’s fate and existence as a diaspora-nation community, with the two-volume Golah ve-Nekhar (Exile and Estrangement) being his most outstanding scholarly undertaking
  • Topical articles dealing with immediate socio-political problems of Zionism and the emerging State of Israel
