Judaism's Infinity Is Like That Of A Point

a: Judaism's infinity ~
b: that of a point

What: "Because Christianity is not passed on from parent to child, "Christianity must be missionary." While both communities are eternal, Rosenzweig distinguishes between Judaism as "eternal life" and Christianity as "eternal way." Judaism's infinity is like that of a point, and the Jewish people's self-preservation alone ensures that its existence will not be wiped away. By contrast, Christianity's infinity is akin to a line whose existence consists in the possibility of unlimited extension."
