Wright I am very grateful to the organisers for inviting me to address this important conference, and only sorry that because of other duties I have been unable to take any other part in your gathering.
As noted above, political emancipation in a modern state does not require the Jews or, for that matter, the Christians to renounce religion; only complete human emancipation would involve the disappearance of religion, but that is not yet possible "within the hitherto existing world order".
Bauer has stated that the renouncing of religion would be especially difficult for Jews, because Judaism is, in his view, a primitive stage in the development of Christianity.
This is the starting point of a complex and somewhat metaphorical argument which draws on the stereotype of the Jew as a financially apt "huckster" and posits a special connection between Judaism as a religion and the economy of contemporary bourgeois society.
Thus, the Jewish religion does not need to disappear in society, as Bauer argues, because it is actually a natural part of it. Let us not look for the secret of the Jew in his religion, but let us look for the secret of his religion in the real Jew. What is the secular basis of Judaism?
What is the worldly religion of the Jew? What is his worldly God? The Jews have emancipated themselves insofar as the Christians have become Jews.
In it, he responded to the critique of his own essays on the Jewish question by Marx and others. What is the Bible according to the new German philosophy? Inhistorian Heinrich von Treitschke published an article "Unsere Aussichten" "Our Prospects"in which he demanded that the Jews should assimilate to German culture, and described Jewish immigrants as a danger for Germany.
This article would stir a controversy, to which the newspaper Sozialdemokrat, edited by Eduard Bernsteinreacted by republishing almost the entire second part of "Zur Judenfrage" in June and July The whole essay was republished in October in the Berliner Volksblatt, then edited by Wilhelm Liebknecht.
Stenningwith the title "On the Jewish Question", appeared in a collection of essays by Marx. According to Maccoby, Marx argues in the essay that the modern commercialized world is the triumph of Judaism, a pseudo-religion whose god is money. Maccoby has suggested that Marx was embarrassed by his Jewish background and used the Jews as a "yardstick of evil".
Maccoby writes that in later years, Marx limited what he considers to be antipathy towards Jews to private letters and conversations because of strong public identification with antisemitism by his political enemies both on the left Pierre-Joseph Proudhon and Mikhail Bakunin and on the right aristocracy and the Church.
However, he also clarifies in the letter that his support of the petition is merely tactical, to further his efforts at weakening the Christian state. According to McLellan, Marx used the word "Judentum" in its colloquial sense of "commerce" to argue that Germans suffer, and must be emancipated from, capitalism.
According to Greenblatt, "[b]oth writers hope to focus attention upon activity that is seen as at once alien and yet central to the life of the community and to direct against that activity the antisemitic feeling of the audience".
Greenblatt attributes to Marx a "sharp, even hysterical, denial of his religious background". Yoav Peled  sees Marx "shifting the debate over Jewish emancipation from the plane of theology Others argue that "On the Jewish Question" is primarily a critique of liberal rights, rather than a criticism of Judaism, and that apparently antisemitic passages such as "Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist" should be read in that context.
Ray translates a sentence of "Zur Judenfrage" and interprets it as an assimilationist position "in which there is no room within emancipated humanity for Jews as a separate ethnic or cultural identity", and which advocates "a society where both cultural as well as economic difference is eliminated".
Here Ray sees Marx in a "strand of left thinking that has been unable to address forms of oppression not directly linked to class". The political-scientist Professor Iain Hamphsher-Monk wrote in his textbook: It was a retort to Bruno Bauer, who had argued that Jews should not be granted full civic rights and freedoms unless they were baptised as Christians".“The Church and the Jewish Question” One of Bonhoeffer's most famous texts was his April essay, “The Church and the Jewish Question.” Addressing the challenges facing his church under Nazism, Bonhoeffer in this essay argued that National Socialism was an illegitimate form of government and hence had to be opposed on Christian .
We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.
