Is There a Difference Between Judaism and Christianity?

I came across this video a few moments ago as I was doing some studying and research online.

Let me quickly set up the following video:

This is a very thought-provoking, civil conversation between two men. Ben Shapiro is “an American conservative political commentator, writer, and lawyer” and identifies himself as a Jew. John MacArthur is a biblically astute author and teacher, and “has been the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, since February 9, 1969.”

The following video begins with Ben Shapiro saying that Christianity and Judaism aren’t really that different. The assumption is that the belief systems are close enough to justify both belief systems. John MacArthur then responds in a very cordial, Christocentric way by stating the differences between the two views. The Gospel is clearly and beautifully presented as he speaks.

If only all conversations on religious beliefs could be this thought provoking and civil.

I would highly encourage you to watch this 20 minute video.
