Haym Soloveitchik's Demolition of Talya Fishman's Thesis
By JEREMY ROSEN
I have to go back 50 years to when I first met Haym Soloveitchik, the brilliant son of the magisterial and phenomenal late Rabbi JB Soloveitchik....
I don't know the details but I've longed held that Christians don't always "get" what's being said
EG I come to fulfill the commandments
In Hebrew - bossi l'kayeim hammitzvot. Any Jew would understand fulfill to mean
To OBSERVE the Mitzvos
But Christians [mis]-undertstand it as Y'shua doing it on behalf of everyone else. A radical shift to "vicarious" observance.
imho such misunderstandings abound re: the Tanach and NT. However, whether clarifying such misperceptions would accomplish a rapprochement is beyond the scope of this post.
