Abstract From 1947, with the “Ten Points” of the Conference in Seelisberg (Switzerland), there is an often invisible connection between Jewish-Christian relationships and the Ecumenical Movement. For most Churches, the permanency of Israel is not only a historical fact but a theological issue which may sometimes create division within and between denominations. The question of biblical hermeneutics becomes central as we discover in these texts signs of the ongoing debates within the Christian communities about the issue of relationships between Jews and Christians. Even the establishing of a new tradition of biblical interpretation by Martin Luther shows the interaction between the Canon of scriptures and the People of God. And this interaction may give a new relevance to the articulation of Christian ordinances as displayed by the Lambeth Quadrilateral. Finally, the distinction between the People of God and the eschatological kingdom raises questions which belong to fundamental theology.
