Despite the attention it has received in Jewish thought and modern philosophy, Rosenzweig's Star of Redemption has been relatively neglected by Christian theology, aside from the somewhat misleading attribution to it of the "two-covenant" theory. This essay considers the extended analysis of Christianity given in Part III of the Star by addressing three related topics: first, what Rosenzweig thought was distinctive about both Judaism and Christianity, as "historical forms of revelation"; second, what in his view defined the originality of the church in contrast to the synagogue, as a community turned paradoxically both back toward its beginning and outward to the world; and, third, how his treatment of the "dogma" of the Trinity raises important questions about Christian theology's engagement with this major Jewish writer.
