      For Luke, like Matthew (Matthew 5:17-20), Jesus not only is not contrary to Judaism, He fulfills it: as the “glory of Israel” (Luke 2:32), Jesus is Torah in Person (Luke 2:32 in allusion to Isaiah 2:3, 5). For John also, Jesus is the King of Israel (John 1:49-50). Judaism is the core of Christianity.

      “Jesus is Torah in person”… that is so beautiful!

      Indeed Judaism is the core of Christianity. This Judaism is our mother and everything we have in our Church is Jewish. Jesus Christ is a Jew. The Blessed Mother was a Jew. St. Yosef ben David was a Jew. All of the Apostles were Jews even St. Paul. Our sacraments particularly the Holy Eucharist is Jewish. It is the integral celebration of Jewish Passover. Thus, we are really Jewish!
