Modlitwa Pańska w kontekście mentalności żydowskich adresatów Ewangelii Mateusza
The Lords Prayer in the context of Jewish mentality of the Matthews targeted readers
Languages of publication
Catholic Church promotes the dialogue with Judaism and encourages interfaith meetings aimed to mutual understanding and friendship. Obviously, prayer is and should be the main integrating factor, and the Lords Prayer fits the best to such a task. It was formulated in the context of Jewish mentality and prayer tradition and rabbis in general do not object its content. In the paper, the comparison of the Lords Prayer in Matthews version with standard prayer book of todays Jews is presented. It reveals how Christians may deepen their understanding of the familiar prayer with unfamiliar meaning, and how Jews may see the Jewishness of the very roots of Christian prayer and belief.
