Abstract

Gunning’s perception of contemporary Judaism was the result of the
influence of the Dutch ‘Réveil’, especially of Isaäc da Costa. During his
lifetime Gunning developed a rather consistent theology about ‘Israel’. He
was no supporter of mission under the Jews. In some writings he adopted
some popular ‘anti-Semitic’ ideas, but such notions were not decisive for
his theology. On the contrary, Gunnings Israel-theology has given a basic
impulse to the Jewish-Christian dialogue.
