The piece looks at the changing perceptions and images that the Roman Catholic Church has toward Jews and Judaism. The author begins by elaborating on the traditional origins of how Jews were perceived in Christian theology. The author looks into an older belief that Jews had forfeited their right to chosenness and links the belief to previous justification of the persecution of Jews in the past. The author moves on to acknowledge that despite changes in text of the Catholic church they still continue to promote the church as the "new people of god," but there is an acknowledgement of the role of Israel and its special connection to the Jews. The authors conclude by providing suggestions for building the relationship towards an improved image of Jews.
