The query of even if Thomas Aquinas's theology is supersessionist has elicited deep confrontation between students. a few keep that Aquinas is the standard-bearer of a supersessionist church that undermines Judaism, whereas others carry that Aquinas avoids supersessionism altogether. but the dialogue over no matter if Aquinas's theology is supersessionist has no longer consistently conscientiously interrogated the time period "supersessionism," nor has it taken into consideration a few of Aquinas's so much proper texts near to Israel and the Church: his commentaries on Paul's letters. Drawing upon the Pauline commentaries, Aquinas on Israel and the Church argues that whereas Aquinas's most ordinarily articulated view is that Jewish worship is discontinued after the fervour of Christ, Aquinas additionally complicated perspectives that set this into query, and in ways in which aid modern Christian teachings that verify the worth of postbiblical Judaism.

"Matthew Tapie conscientiously analyzes the terminology of supersessionism and develops a operating definition that permits us to parent the tensions within the writings of Thomas and to appreciate the rival exams of his glossy interpreters. Guided by way of his insightful statement, we come to determine a Thomas who's either a son of his personal age and a wealthy source for these of our personal instances looking a Christian theology of Judaism that's devoted to the educating of Nostra Aetate."
--Mark S. Kinzer, President emeritus, Messianic Jewish Theological Institute, Ann Arbor, MI

"Christians this present day usually repudiate supersessionism, yet they don't continually conscientiously learn simply what that's imagined to suggest. we're in Tapie's debt for remedying this case with designated connection with the theology of Thomas Aquinas. Tapie's wealthy, thorough, and multidimensional photo of Aquinas's perspectives on Jewish observance of the ceremonial legislation after Christ is destined to develop into a landmark."
--R. Kendall Soulen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington, DC

"Tapie has supplied a definitive learn on Aquinas's complicated and now and then contradictory studying of Paul as supersessionist or now not. within the method, Tapie deals the clearest instructing i've got noticeable at the which means of supersessionism in smooth scholarship, from Isaac to Wyschogrod, Nostra Aetate, Levering, Soulen, and masses extra. with out overlaying over ambiguities (in) Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, and Hebrews, he concludes with a sober but hopeful account of the trajectory of Thomas's thinking--an account that are meant to give a contribution considerably to modern discussions of Judaism and the church."
--Peter Ochs, Edgar M. Bronfman Professor of contemporary Judaic stories, collage of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA

"The drafters of Nostra Aetate, the 1965 Vatican II rfile that revolutionized Catholic instructing at the Jews, felt they'd to move the entire as far back as Scripture to discover assets for rethinking theological anti-Judaism, so soundly rooted did it appear within the church's culture. Tapie indicates that they ignored extra proximate resources in St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the such a lot respected gurus in Catholicism. The views Tapie has opened are a landmark contribution to the tricky paintings of reconciliation among Christians and Jews."
--John Connelly, professor, collage of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA
