Jews tend to think that Christians are just Jews, only with Jesus, and Christians tend to think that Jews are just Christians only without Jesus (which is a big without). The average Jew and the average Christian does not realize just how different the total world view is, the total understanding of God, of nature, of mankind, of everything. 
I see what you mean, Liz. This discussion has certainly shown how 
different Shoshanna's Judaism is from my Christianity.

But it also seems to me that Jews like Yigal and yourself have more in 
common, in your general worldview, with scholarly liberal Christians 
than you do with other Jews like Shoshanna. And in some ways, such as 
believing in the reality of predictive prophecy and in Satan as a real 
personal angelic being, Shoshanna and I have things in common which are 
rejected at least by Yigal as well as by liberal Christians. So the 
lines are not as simply drawn as you suggest.
