The Wirkungsgescichte of the well-known arable of the prodigal son has strong repercussions upon Jewish-Christian relations. Tertullian denies this application and identifies Christianity with he prodigal son only when coming from paganism. Augustine applies the prodigal son to Christianity, but tries to blame the eldest son although he is identified with Jews loyal to Gods law. The Jewish philosopher Rosenzweig derives from the same parable his conviction of separate tasks of Judaism (staying with the Father) and Christianity (coming to the Father).
