Jews’ Role in Christ’s First and Second Coming

Roy Schoeman on Salvation History

BOSTON, Massachusetts, NOV. 10, 2003 ( A Catholic convert from Judaism believes that the Jews are not only our “elder brothers” in the faith, but that their prayers and actions prepared the way for Jesus Christ and the salvation of mankind.

Roy Schoeman, who grew up in a Conservative Jewish home and studied extensively with rabbis, realized the full significance of Judaism as revealed in Catholic doctrine after he converted. Since then, the former faculty member of Harvard Business School has studied at several seminaries and has recently written “Salvation is from the Jews” (Nostra Aetate” and “Lumen Gentium.”
