Mission is fundamental to the life of the Christian church and there has been much controversy in recent decades about whether Christians should continue to try to convert Jews. Christianity needs to create a new relationship with Judaism and dialogue offers an appropriate expression of this. The role of Messianic Jews is particularly controversial. Jewish Christians have brought many gifts to the church, but a Christian prayer for Jews should primarily be one of thankfulness.
