Ward's trinity and the stubborn Jews

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


My paper addresses the possibility of Jews and Christians becoming theologically closer than in the past, given Ward's Trinity. I address the question of whether Ward's version of the Trinity necessarily clashes with Jewish tradition. I contend that it does not so clash, especially because for Ward Jesus is only a contingent instantiation of the Word. A Jew could accept the purely logical implications of the Wardian Trinity. I then present a new Jewish theology of Jesus, one that is sympathetic to Jesus, but which denies his divinity. The result is a moving closer of Jewish and Christian theology.
