"Almost clandestinely, the Roman Catholic Church has in recent weeks
taken another step toward reducing Christian animosity toward
Judaism - animosity stemming from the theological dispute between
the two religions.

In a 210-page document published in book form in Rome, the Church
states that there is no contradiction between the Jews' anticipation
of the Messiah's arrival and the Christians' belief that the Messiah
has already arrived, because Christians believe that the Messiah
will return at the End of Days.

It is significant that the Vatican's new document does not
unequivocally or explicitly state that the Messiah destined to
return will be Jesus Christ but instead says that the Messiah "will
bear the signs of that same Jesus who arrived in the past." The
document even adds that the Jews' anticipation of the Messiah's
arrival can significantly encourage Christians' belief in the
Messiah's return. The new document was written by the Pontifical
Biblical Commission, established by Pope John Paul II in 1997. The
commission was headed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, prefect of the
Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith and its other members were
20 Bible experts, each of whom received papal authorization to serve
on the committee."
