Freedom and Law

Randi Rashkover

Fordham University Press

This chapter begins with an expanded account of Rosenzweig's phenomenology of revelation and argues that the event of revelation is the event of a divine, unconditional gift of love. As unconditional gift, divine love registers as divine command to receive or testify to this love. The link between love and command reflects the nature of divine law as the free affirmation of the difference between God and persons. As well, Chapter 6 analyzes the character of human freedom and in particular, what is means to say that persons are justified morally, existentially, and epistemologically in the law. Chapter 6 also offers an account of the impact of the logic of the law for understanding the meaning of religious truth and introduces a new post-polemical logic for Jewish-Christian relations.

Keywords:   justification, Jewish-Christian relations, revelation, apologetics
