Podstawowe przesłanki wizji TJCII

TJCII jest międzynarodową inicjatywą pojednania żydowskiej i nie-żydowskiej (pochodzącej z Narodów) części Kościoła. Członkowie naszej inicjatywy są przekonani, że pewnego dnia uda się zwołać Sobór Jerozolimski Drugi, który odnosząc się z wielkim szacunkiem do Pierwszego Soboru (opisanego w Dziejach Apostolskich rozdział 15), będzie jednocześnie, w pewnym sensie, jego odwrotnością. Zważywszy bowiem, że Pierwszy Sobór był przeprowadzony przez Żydów wierzących w Jezusa, którzy zdecydowali się nie narzucać nie – Żydom wymogów żydowskiego prawa, chcemy, aby Drugi Sobór był zwołany przez nie-żydowskich liderów Kościoła, którzy przyjmą Żydów wierzących w Jezusa bez wymogu wyrzeczenia się ich żydowskiej tożsamości i porzucenia zwyczajów. Inicjatywie przewodniczy

Zapraszamy do zapoznania z Parszą na dzisiaj:Wajisa miszam Awraham – Wyruszył stamtąd Abraham: Rdz 20,1-18 (1) Potem Abraham powędrował stamtąd do Negebu i osiedlił się pomiędzy Kadesz a Szur. A gdy przebywał w Gerarze, (2) mawiał o swej żonie Sarze: Jest ona moją siostrą. Wobec tego Abimelek, król Geraru, wysłał swoich ludzi, by zabrali Sarę. (3) Tej samej jednak nocy przyszedł Bóg do Abimeleka we śnie i powiedział do niego: Umrzesz z powodu tej kobiety, którą zabrałeś, gdyż ona ma męża. (4) Abimelek, który jeszcze nie zbliżył się do niej, rzekł: Panie, czy miałbyś także ukarać śmiercią ludzi niewinnych? (5)

For God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable

Below we present fragments of the transcript of the teaching of fr. Peter Hocken on Romans which took place on 9th November 2013 in Hainburg, Austria as a part of the Bible Teaching series. Presented below is the part which refers to chapters 9-11. In Romans 9 Paul begins to speak directly about Israel, the Jewish people. Is this a complete change of subject from chapter 8, like some people have imagined? I think not, because in chapter 8 Paul is talking about the salvation of Jew and Gentile—of all—saying that God’s plan of salvation will not be frustrated. At

During World War II, Hainburg became one of the way-points of the Jews during
