The Jewish Roots Of Catholicism

Evangelicals are well aware of the Jewish roots of Christianity, but they are mostly oblivious to how deeply this manifests itself within the Catholic Church. Many of the mysteries within Catholicism cannot be adequately explained without going back to the Jewish roots of the faith. Indeed, when Evangelicals learn of this, they gain a special appreciation for Catholicism, and some of them even convert over to Catholicism directly because of this. Catholics miss a huge window of opportunity for ecumenical relations with Evangelicals by glossing over the Jewish character of Catholicism. Emphasis on this element in Catholicism would not only help Evangelicals better understand the Catholic Church, but would also result in more Evangelical conversions to the Catholic faith.
