Koch stresses ‘no conversion of Jews’

17 May 2013


Cardinal Kurt Koch forcefkochal2012ully emphasised that the Church’s relations with Jews are different in kind from its relations with all other religions.

“We Christians must not bear witness in relation to the Jews to a path of salvation which is completely foreign to them, as we do with other religions,” the President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Commission for Religious Relations with Jews said on a visit to Jerusalem last week.

“This is because the New Testament is built up totally on the basis of the Old Testament. The Catholic Church therefore does not have an organised Jewish mission, as certain Evangelical groups do.”

The cardinal was speaking at a fringe meeting of the Joint Commission for Jewish-Catholic Dialogue on 9 May.
