Default Books for Catholics to read about Judaism and the founding of Catholicism

As a catholic I feel an urge to read about the Jewish faith I guess this is because they are our predecessors. I believe that we need to learn more about the religion that start it all and paved way for Christianity.

What good book is their go Catholics to read about Judaism

Also I am fascinated to read books about early Christianity and Catholicism and how the Catholic church is intact the church rounds by Christ.

What good books are there in that field?

Arturo, you absolutely must read "Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist: Unlocking the Secrets of the Last Supper" by Dr. Brant Pitre. Wonderful book, written from a Catholic perspective.

http://www.amazon.com/Jesus-Jewish-R.../dp/0385531842

From the Amazon description:

In recent years, Christians everywhere are rediscovering the Jewish roots of their faith. Every year at Easter time, many believers now celebrate Passover meals (known as Seders) seeking to understand exactly what happened at Jesus’ final Passover, the night before he was crucified.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist shines fresh light on the Last Supper by looking at it through Jewish eyes. Using his in-depth knowledge of the Bible and ancient Judaism, Dr. Brant Pitre answers questions such as: What was the Passover like at the time of Jesus? What were the Jewish hopes for the Messiah? What was Jesus’ purpose in instituting the Eucharist during the feast of Passover? And, most important of all, what did Jesus mean when he said, “This is my body… This is my blood”?

To answer these questions, Pitre explores ancient Jewish beliefs about the Passover of the Messiah, the miraculous Manna from heaven, and the mysterious Bread of the Presence. As he shows, these three keys—the Passover, the Manna, and the Bread of the Presence—have the power to unlock the original meaning of the Eucharistic words of Jesus. Along the way, Pitre also explains how Jesus united the Last Supper to his death on Good Friday and his Resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Inspiring and informative, Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist is a groundbreaking work that is sure to illuminate one of the greatest mysteries of the Christian faith: the mystery of Jesus’ presence in “the breaking of the bread.”

Go to Roy Schoeman's site salvationisfromthejews.com He has a book by that same name. He is a convert from Judaism.

The Crucified Rabbi: Judaism and the Origins of Catholic Christianity by Taylor Marshall is another good one.

Warren H Carroll , "The Founding of Christendom", along with E. Michael Jones, "The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit and it's Impact on World History". Read the chapters about the time of Jesus and the early chruch.

May want to skip Schoeman's book as he seems to advocate some of that "dual covenant" theology heresy. Not sure why Marcus Grodi never called him on the carpet when he was a guest on The Journey Home.
