Summary expansion
The first part, Tractatus contra iudaeos, was written in response to the negative Jewish reaction to the author's earlier work, Commentum in Psalmos, printed in Valencia, 6 Sept. 1484. In the Tractatus, Pérez demonstrates the errors of the Jews by answering five questions: whether the advent of Christ invalidates Mosaic law; whether the Sabbath of the Law should replace the Day of the Lord; whether the promised land of Canaan was specifically promised to the children of Israel as a reward for the observation of the Law; whether Jesus Christ is the true Messiah; and whether the Law of Moses is succeeded by the Gospel Law which Jesus preached. The remaining three tracts are commentaries on various canticles
