With the erection of a replica of Israel’s security barrier wall at a London Church, when a Holland based Roman Catholic Church Association television station airs a video clip titled “Jews kill Jesus”, when a Sydney based Anglican priest, in one of his recent sermons states that “Jews killed Jesus” I say enough is enough. The time has come for a full frontal assault on the basis of the Christian gospels from where all antisemitism emerged.

The unbridled persecution of Jews throughout the centuries should have taught us that in order to legitimize the gospels, Christianity needs to perpetuate the same deception of Jews as the eternal scapegoats. I find it unfortunate that I need to respond in the manner I do, but rest assured this dialogue needs to take place. A tidal wave of antisemitism is currently engulfing the world and the past docile, politically correct and ill-informed posture of world Jewry has been proven to be an abysmal failure.


To address the issue of antisemitism head on, I offer the following.

The Republic of Rome 2,000 years ago would never have tolerated anyone in its midst being proclaimed as the Messiah or King of the Jews. Simply put, under Roman law, calls for a monarchy within the Republic would have been a treasonable offense punishable by death.

It was not an issue for the Sanhedrin, as Christian theology would want us to believe.

The birth of antisemitism would no doubt have come from the Christian narrative of the actions of Pontius Pilate, the Roman Governor at the time. Christianity teaches that at Passover there was a Roman custom whereby one prisoner scheduled for crucifixion would be pardoned. This same narrative goes on to say that when given the choice of who to free, the Jewish mob cried out for Barabbas. Then followed the hand washing scene where Pontius Pilate freed Barabbas and exonerated himself for the death of the Christ (literally the “anointed one”) and so started the beginnings of antisemitism spread so successfully by the Church down the centuries to the present day.

Unfortunately, according the writings of the noted Roman historian Josephus, there was never any Roman custom to pardon anyone scheduled for crucifixion. If this is so, then the whole story is a myth fabricated by the early Church to blame someone (but not the Roman authorities) for the death of their Christ. Who better to blame than Jews?

I offer the following for the benefit of those Jews who find themselves engaged in theological debate, subjected to anti-Semitic vilification or Evangelical Christian attempts to convert them to Christianity. Additionally, never again do we need the spectacle as reported some years back where a guide at the Sydney Holocaust Museum was asked “Why don’t Jews just accept Jesus?” (implying the horror of the holocaust would never have taken place if Jews would only have forsaken the Torah for the New Testament). According to news reports, the guide’s only response was to stand there totally bewildered and unable to answer. Hopefully the following, if absorbed, will ensure this deplorable episode will never occur again.

The psalms were Jewish and written before the birth of Christianity. All references to “Lord” were to the Lord God of Israel. Christian clergy often quote the psalms and the average Christian thinks the references to “Lord” (e.g. Psalm 23 “The Lord is my shepherd”) refer to Jesus. No Christian clergy to my knowledge has ever seen fit to enlighten his flock. So the propaganda goes on and on from one generation to the other. Even the regularly quoted: “The meek shall inherit the earth” often quoted by Christians as a profound and original statement by their Saviour is nothing more than his quoting from the Psalms (Psalm 37 Verse 11).



  1. The Gospels were written by Jews who followed Jesus. The followers of Jesus called him Rabbi. They were angry at the Jewish high priest who had Jesus handed over to the Romans. In later centuries Christians misunderstood the writers of the Gospel and blamed the Jews. As an Irish American Catholic with Jewish friends I can tell you that us Catholics and most Christians are your friends and we do not blame you for anything that happened to Jesus, and if anyone does, have no fear. Rabbi Jesus said: "This world shall pass away, but my words shall never pass away"

  2. I am tired of hearing Jews explicate themselves. There is nothing that some of their ancestors did that they need to apologize for, over and over.

    The Romans crucified Jesus and even his followers admit that his death is part of their messianic message. IE it was preordained to be. Case closed, move on.

  5. You and your friends are a tiny minority. The church inculcated Jew hatred in their followers for around 1800 years. It was only in 1963 that they magnanimously proclaimed that the decendents of Jews from jesus's time are not to be blamed for his murder. Hard to change peoples minds after 1800 years of church lies. Too little,too late.

  6. Margaret Salmond there is no such thing as a divided G*dhead in Judaism. That's a Pagan idea that infiltrated the early Church. G*d is ONE, UNDIVIDED, and that's the basic foundation of Judaism – every day we say "Hear O Israel, the LORD G*d is ONE." NOT three. ONE.

  7. I have had this discussion with a Catholic online. His response to my explanation about why it was the Romans who killed Jesus was, “Roberta, I don’t know what bible YOU’VE been reading, but…”. Now, not all Catholics, nor all Christians are scriptural fundamentalists, but it is fundamentalism that is dangerous, of all makes and models. Fundamentalism renders reason and fact inoperative. Explanations such as this are ineffective for this reason. I am a Jew by choice. Almost no Christians know Judaism, as they are only taught what Judaism teaches by other Christians. I agree, Jews need to respectfully and confidently leave behind the PC, and the laying low to call no attention to ourselves for fear we may call down another pogrom. But the audience should be carefully chosen.

  8. There is not one contemperaneous account of what happened, if anything at all did happen. It's all hearsay written decades after and who is to now how much
    was distorted to fil a particular agenda

  9. And I have a good Catholic friend who recently told me that the Church tells you that all of the Old Testament are just stories. Now why would the Old Testament be 'just stories', but the New Testament be 'the truth'. Perhaps you could consider that it was man/the Church's need for power and control that begun this sorry state of affairs that has resulted in Jewish suffering?

  10. Sylvie Schapira we know that because it is taught to us through our Torah, and through our Sages, and through our Theology. I'm sorry that you have accepted a religion that to us is anathema, you worship a man-god and that to us is idolatry, pure and simple. Any religion that deifies a human is automatically forbidden to us. It's obnoxious for you to try to convince us otherwise. We don't believe in hell the way you do, we don't believe in personal salvation of the soul, in fact we, unlike you, believe the soul is PURE from before birth, and that it isn't full of "original sin" (we don't believe that either). Your religion is an amalgam of 1st-Century Judaism and Paganism. I could give you a hundred examples but let's just start with the basics of your theology – a trinity, a 3-part godhead. What could be MORE pagan than that, or less Jewish???

  11. True! It was the Romans, but at the instigation of the Pharisees and Sadducees leaders. However Jesus forgave all who had a part to play in His murder! The root of anti-Semitism was in anti-Christian Roman Catholic doctrine. That church was not and is not Christian!

  12. Sylvie Schapira The mistake many Jewish people make, is to think they are all Jesus on that cross, to think their ancestors suffered more than everyone else in the world. In reality, most of you are making good money, and people in the world today who suffer real violence and poverty could care less about your stupid whining and complaining. Go see a therapist and stop bitching and moaning, you have the money. Most people in the world don't even have clean water.

  13. "Unfortunately, according the writings of the noted Roman historian Josephus, there was never any Roman custom to pardon anyone scheduled for crucifixion."

    If Josephus really said this, where is the citation? If this claim is made simply on the basis that Josephus never mentions the custom, that would be an invalid argument from silence.

    There is nothing anti-semetic in the Gospels. Wicked men, like that Serpent of old, will take what God has said and twist it in order to drive their own wicked agenda. "Hath God really said…?" Jesus is the Savior of the World. This includes all people, the first of which were Jews.

  14. Point to two additional facts. First Duet. 13; which by GOD’s law would have required the blood of Jesus. Second, Jesus says 88 times he is the son of man. How can he be the son of man and the son of GOD. He was the Messiah, look up the definition. Also, children can NOT be held responsible for the sins, if it were, of their parents.

  15. A true Christian does not hate nor blame the Jew. He laid his life down as a perfect sacrifice,(the ultimate red heifer/lamb). We understand who Hashem is. Col 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the G-dhead bodily. He was not just a man, he was a clean man, in whom, all of the Spirit dwelt. He did not just die, he rose! Even in Christianity there are many false prophets, but truly there is only ONE. Sh'ma Yis'ra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.

  16. Jesus was an ordinary jew during the Roman occupation of Judea. The idea that he was turned over to the roman authorities on a Friday night (Shabbat) and on the eve of Passover is so ridiculous that it does not even require an explanation. Jesus the Christ is an invention of another Jew called Paul (Saul of Tarsus). I think that instead of 2000 years of Jewish persecution from the Vatican , the Vatican owes the Jews 2000 years of royalties for using one of ours as their God.

  17. Christopher Norton, you are the person I was speaking about above. The gospels are not historical. There are so many reasons and proofs against historicity I couldn’t begin to expound on it. To this person, none of these arguments in the article will avail. Why do the Jews hate Jesus? They don’t. They fear Christians.

  18. The reasons why the Jews reject Jesus is that Christian beliefs about Jesus are UnBiblical. Christians claim Jesus died for the sins of humanity, but the Bible states, "Eesh b'chet-o yu-ma-tu, every man shall be put to death for his own sin," in Deuteronomy 24:16, among other places. Christians claim that Jesus was Gd, but Gd tell us, "For I am Gd and not a man," in Hosea 11:9, among other places. Christians claim that Jesus was a part of a trinity, but the the Bible states, "Thus saith the Etrnl the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Etrnl of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no Gd," in Isaiah 44:6, but if Gd is the first, then Gd has no Father, and if Gd is the last, then Gd has no son, and if besides Gd there is no other, then Gd does not share being Gd with another entity. Christians claim that Jesus was the necessary blood sacrifice for the forgiveness of sin, but who did the dying in order to be that blood sacrifice? Was it Jesus-the-god, or was it Jesus-the-man who did the dying? Gd cannot die, so it was Jesus-the-human, so Christianity is based on a human sacrifice, and the Bible tells us that Gd calls human sacrifice an abomination and something Gd hates in Deuteronomy 12:31, "..for every abomination to the Etrnl, which He hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods." This assumes that Gd requires a blood sacrifice for the forgiveness of sin, which the book of Jonah, among other places, shows is untrue. The Christian beliefs about Jesus have more in common with the dying/saving pagan man/gods of the ancient world, than with anything in the TaNaCH or in Judaism over the last 4,000 years, give or take. The statement, "his mother was human, his father was god,' sounds like Jesus, but it also sounds like Hercules, Dionysus (a savior god) and Perseus (whose human mother did not become pregnant from the sex act, like a virgin birth). For more on all this, see .

  19. Some of the followers of JC will never accept the fact that Jews never crucified anyone. That was a Roman form of punishment. Their "saviour" is quoted in the gospels as saying not to change one letter of the Torah or to add or subtract from it. That too is not accepted by his followers. The faith of his followers was invented many years after his death with antio-semitism incorporated into it because we didn't accept him as the messiah. The fact that we didn't accept him and that we are still here as a people is an affront to their faith.

  20. Nobody killed Jesus, he said it himself . John 10:18 “No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.”

  21. You have clues all through their book, ‘We have no king but Caesar” which is a sentiment more general than Jewish, and well known. But trying to reject the charge means someone somehow feels guilty. There was nothing any more damnable about killing this Jew than the thousands by by Rome and millions killed by Christianity later.

But trying to reject the charge means someone somehow feels guilty.

  23. I stand with the writer in his comments, but not necessarily his conclusions. First of all the New Testament was given by the Catholic religion who hated and continue to hate both the Jews and the written Torah. They are of the Synagogue of Satan and like Nimrod, hunt the souls of men to turn them from G-d. The Catholic religion is not a Christian religion, it is pagan in origin and concept. They have twisted the truth and instituted a replacement religion and a replacement, i.e. surrogate Messiah, whom they call 'Christ'. The New Testament was altered to conform to the pagan doctrines, traditions, and practices of that time, which were instituted to 'replace' the Sabbaths and Holy Assemblies commanded in Scripture. The name Jesus is not a translation from Hebrew to Greek and English, it is a transition from the Greek god Zeus, Ie-sous, Jesu, Jesus, which is a surrogate name.
    One time a Catholic, who hated Jews, said to me, "Do you know who killed Jesus?" I answered on the basis of Catholic and Protestant theology: "Yes I know who killed Jesus … YOU DID!. Had you not sinned He would not have had to come to die for your sins." I forced him to accept his own contribution to the death of Jesus. I did not debate the correctness of his theology, I only forced him to come to accept his own theological beliefs. It was he who killed his christ.

  24. There are many problems with the gospel accounts ofthe events leading up to the death of Jesus. The gospels were written decades after the events, by writers ignorant of or hostile to Jewish laws and customs. Eg the Sanhedrin would have been forbidden to meet to condemn Jesus on Passover. It is not blasphemous for a Jew to claim to be the Messiah, since he is not divine. There have been a few claimants, all mistaken so far. The meeting of the Sanhedrin could not have taken place,

  25. It's just an allegory meaning Jews kill the truth. Christ stood as the symbol of truth and light. That is why Jews all over are trying to pass "hate speech" laws that forbid talking about their control of the media or banks, or investigations of the holocaust hoax under penalties of imprisonment. They are "crucifying" the truth again.

  26. Jesus was NOT killed or murdered, as some people like to say. Jesus purposely LAID DOWN His life in order to restore the relationship between God and man-kind, as it was in the first two chapters of Genesis before sin entered. As for the people themselves involved–the True Jewish members of the Sanhedrin back in the time of Jesus, were against the crucifixion. The others, including Annas and Caiaphas, were appointed by the Romans, like Herod Antipas and his father Herod the (Not so) Great, from the Armenians. This is why John the Baptist was not in the Temple performing the duties of a priest. John was the son of Zechariah, a priest. Therefore, it was his duty to be in the Temple. But when the Romans began occupying the territory, they “threw out” the Jewish priests and instilled their own people. THESE are the ones who crucified Jesus!! But ultimately, it was OUR OWN SIN that caused His death–for He took upon Himself the sin of the whole world!

  27. The birth of antisemitism comes from the Christians? Hey doofus, the Egyptians hated the Jews when they lived in Goshen, the Babylonians hate the Jews and took them captive, the Romans hated the Jews long before there were Christians. Get a grip, learn some history. AntiSemitism has been around for a long long time!

  28. If we're going to follow Christian logic, G-d must have said… I'm going to create man and woman with original sin. Then I'm going to impregnate a woman with myself as a child, so that I can be born as human. Once alive, I will kill myself as a sacrifice to myself. To save you from the sin I originally condemned you to.

  29. Wow you need to get up to speed with today's historical perspective and stop reading the trash like the Prodical of the Elders, which is all lies. Jews never ran the banks in the US, Henry Ford blocked their entrance into the investment banking, less than one percent of the bank owners today in Europe are Jewish. As for the media, a few in Television or Movies and even fewer in newspapers. The Los Angeles Times is one of the biggest papers in the country, and for decades was run by an ultrarich Whitebread WASP family named the Chandlers. Big deal you post a video on a Holocaust denier who was jailed as proof? I can show you bodies, scares, tattoos and people who survived as proof. You are nothing but the scum of the earth to deny what happened to people.

  30. Why aren't all Christians Jewish? After her all Jesus was Jewish. Are Christians also keeping the fact that the Romans did not just crucify Jesus. 25,000 Jews along with anyone that was against the Roman empire was crucified the same way Jesus was.

  31. Passover begins at sunset, right? The crucifixion was before that. The meeting was at night, before that. It was the claim of God as his Father, in his reply to being asked if he was Mashiach, that was the actual bone of contention, right? Not the same as claiming to be Mashiach.

  32. I am sorry for you,
    Please read the verse of the Gospel of Matthew 27:49 in the oldest manuscripts available, the Codex Sinaiticus and Codex vaticanus. There you can read that Jesus Christ was killed by a Jewish high priest, accordingly to the law of Moses. Only a cohen could do the killing of an animal as an atonement. Jesus was the Passover Lamb. Please read this in most bibles missing text carefully and start to wonder: Why has it been left out in newer manuscripts? To avoid problems with the circumcised?
    Quite frankly, the manuscripts give inrefutable proof that Jesus was killed by a Jewish high priest and not by a Roman soldier.
    Your remark that the Jews killed nobody can be refuted by the murder of Stephan, as described in Acts.
    Please remember Mamilla in Jerusalem, where Jews killed 90,000 Christians at the pool in a few days. Christians who have been bought from the Persians as slaves? when the Persians became aware that Jews bought the Christians only to murder them, they stopped the massacre.
    Should I also remember the scroll of Esther?

  33. It is my understanding that only the Romans could carry out a death sentence. The claim of being a king is what did it for Pilate. Rome backed the Herodians, and this was trouble for him, it Pilate did nothing about it.

    You need to look to the writings of Paul for the roots of anti-Semitism in Christian theology. The Church of the eleven apostles was essentially Jewish, but Paul's church won out in the end by sheer numbers, and a more vigorous proselytizing.

    Most of the books of the apostles are recognized as not having been written by the apostles.

  34. Kathleen Marion
    And I can show you that millions have been murdered in the last century by secular Jews as Stalin, Kaganowitz, trotsky and Lenin. Just go to the Ukraine, or Poland or Russia itself. Or read about Shlomo Morel, who clubbed to death hundreds of innocent German citizens to death, or other heroes that dropped nuclear bombs on Japan. Or other carpet bombing on Tokyo, Berlin, Hamburg or Dresden. Or the millions of Germans died by starving in the Rhine camps after the end of WWII.

  35. We were told growing up that the Old Testament God was full of fury and vengeance, while the New Testament was kind and merciful. Maybe God just has a wicked sense of humor and He enjoys making people piss themselves in fear or tossing them into hell for not believing in something that nobody would logically believe unless they actually saw it for themselves…speaking of which, did any of the authors of the gospels actually witness the events they described so vividly? Most were written over 50 years after the death of Jesus. And then, the Roman church guided what went into the gospels, picking and choosing what they wanted to include.

  36. So easy to disprove. At least make it somewhat of a challenge. Also, the "Prodical" of the Elders? Too funny.

    The Federal Reserve Bank is a consortium of 9 Jewish-owned & associated banks with the Rothschilds at the head:

    $1. Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin

    $2. Lazard Brothers Banks of Paris

    $3. Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy

    $4. Warburg Bank of Hamburg and Amsterdam

    $5. Lehman Brothers of NY

    $6. Kuhn, Loeb Bank of NY (Now Shearson American Express)

    $7. Goldman, Sachs of NY

    $8. National Bank of Commerce NY/Morgan Guaranty Trust (J. P. Morgan Bank – Equitable Life – Levi P. Morton are principal shareholders)

    $9. Hanover Trust of NY (William and David Rockefeller & Chase National Bank NY are principal shareholders). Here & Here

    At least two of those banks caused the collapse of 2008.

  37. Anybody blaming Jews for Jesus' death is just twisting their own "truth" even further from the truth. Jesus and the Romans did most of the work…the line "why has thou forsaken me" is an indication that Jesus thought he was the son of God until that moment. You know how doomsday cult leaders tell the followers that such and such will happen on a certain date…it was one of those moments, and when such and such didn't happen, it was important to amend the prophecy to match the events of the day.

  38. Michael, your comment is very rude AND very wrong. This is a FORUM where different opinions are openly discussed. Nobody is 'whining and complaining'. SHAME on you! I so appreciate the openness of the Jewish participants on this page – a BIG THANK-YOU! to you. Please forgive this man – he is a perfect example of the words Jesus Christ uttered on the cross: "Father, forgive them – they do not know what they are doing"

  39. Kathleen, know-it-all, Please tell us how many major acts of anti-Semitism, including pogroms, burnings at the stake, forced conversions, kidnaping of Jewish children, banishments, ugly polemics, blood libels, etc, etc there have been in the last 1900 years. Guess — you can do that can't you?

  40. It takes a lot more faith to believe the "logic" that the entire new testament was perpetuated by a false messiah who enticed a rather large group of Jews who continued to follow him even after his death.

  41. Stan Harder I'm not quite sure why you find it necessary to insult me just because I know stuff that you don't know. I was raised to value education like many Jews. I am fully aware of the atrocities done to my people but to give you individual times and amounts I'm afraid I don't have that. I can however tell you that while a major portion of history has resulted with the blood Jews on the hands of Christians it is not all Christians who are guilty. Many during those times protected and defended the Jews as well as had compassion on them. Hardly something we are seeing in the Muslim communities these days.

  42. Kathleen Marion I am so glad that you know stuff I don't. I find it hard to defend most Christian attitudes and actions toward Jews — especially before WWII. Unfortunately many of those Christians that protected and defended the Jews before WWII were princes and popes who did so for purely financial reasons. Ten years ago I knew nothing about Jewish persecution or the history of the "Church." I started a list of major atrocities against Jews which currently stands at 971 incidents. The sad thing is almost every week, as I study history, I find more events to add to it. I know its a dirty business but in a would of ignorance some one has to do it. I am thinking of publishing some time.

  43. Stan Harder There were many throughout history who were Christians but because they loved God and God's people the Jews they protected them, hid them. We know there were many during the Holocaust who risked their families and their own lives to protect Jewish people they knew. Look up Corrie Ten Boom, of course there is Schindler, and many others. Even the Catholic sisters in some convents took in Jewish children to save them from the Holocaust. Rather than focus on the hate, anger and the negative, focus on the goodness of people because there is goodness in everyone, we are created in the image of God, but we have to be taught by others to hate and fear.

  44. I am so glad that you “know stuff I don’t.” I have a hard time defending Christians attitudes and actions toward Jews. Many of those princes and popes who protected and defended the Jews, did so for purely financial reasons. Several years ago I started to study the problem of anti-Semitism in “Church” history. I started a list of atrocities against the Jews. It currently has 971 major incidents over the last 1900 years. I am sometimes asked why I don’t chronicle all the good things Christians have done for Jews. I reply “Why don’t you do this?” Sadly almost all if not all of these righteous acts were done against the backdrop of evil acts by other Christians.

  45. Kathleen Marion It is the Catholic religion that says these people wrote the books ascribed to them. Jesus is not a translation it is a transition. The English name for Yahshua is Joshua. Jesus is a surrogate name given by the early Gentile congregations that rejected i.e.,rebelled against the counsel of Jerusalem and began assimilating their former pagan traditions and holidays. A dog returning to its vomit.

  46. My understand Vitaly, is that the followers of Jesus was a very small minority of Jews. When the first Jewish/Christians saw that not too many of the Jews would accept their beliefs they decided to preach to and convert the pagans of their area and that's how Christianity grew in numbers.

  47. If Jesus was a Christian and accused of blasphemy by Christians and their church leaders, he would have been tortured for a long time in dungeons of inquisition and then burned at the stake. Romans were nicer than Christians!

  48. Actually, Christians are just as guilty if they go around saying "Jews killed Jesus" as this was His mission to become the Lamb of God, and to seal the new covenant with His blood as written of in Jeremiah 31 verse 31, so that salvation should also come to the gentiles. Since a few rejected Christ because of His popularity, He was welcomed by most Jewish people, He healed the sick, made the lame walk and they praised Him, Notice they had to arrest Him by nite as they were afraid of the people. His disciples brought the good news of salvation to us, so that we also become children of G-d or adopted into spiritual Israel. Notice He also said on the cross "It is finished" no more need of sacrifices but only thanks and praise to the Lord G-d of Israel for the grace which is in Christ Jesus. and became our High priest when He cried out "Forgive them father for they know not what they do." our intercessor between G-d and mankind. as we on our own cannot approach the throne of mercy unless we come with a contrite spirit, humble and heart and ask for forgiveness in the Christ name only. their rejection became our salvation G-d bless Israel and its people.

  49. albert alves No it wasnt that way, G-d created Adam and eve and told them not to eat of the tree of good and evil. War arose in heaven and Lucifer the most beaustiful angel fought Against the Lord G-d and his angels and was tossed to earth with his angels having great wrath. so in order to bring chaos into G-d's creation tempted eve to eat of the tree of good and evil, they ate and sin and death came into the world as G-d had said. G-d does not lie. Notice Genesis chapter 3 -14-15 "I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between her seed and thy seed, It shall bruise thy head and ye shall bruise its heel." sickness, corruption, death followed as they were drivien out of paradise. Christ came to restore communion between us and the Lord G-d With adam came sin and death with Christ eternal life and a restoration of favour with the Lord G-d. shalom

  50. stuart Federow, that is true what you say, but we are justified by faith in Christ that He will stand up for us, at the last judgment as Moses often intervened for the children of Israel, and we are still responsible for our sinfull ways, but we can receive forgiveness when we repent and ask it in the name of Christ but if we sin wilfully after knowing the truth there is only fear of judgment. G-d bless

  51. G-d said at the baptism of Christ Jesus. "This is my beloved Son, listen to Him. beside Pontius Pilate was in trouble with Rome and feared a uprising at the time of Christ's crucifixion, plus his wife warned him about Christ our Lord, therefore he tried everything to have Christ released, but Pontius pilate was cruel but inwardly a coward.

  52. Sylvie it is not a myth, did the Lord G-d not also tell the Israelites that He brought them out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand and drove out other nations before them because of the detestable and abominable things that they practiced and warned the Israelites not to follow after other gods? yet they persecuted the prophets and treated them terribly, but God also said that He would save a remnant of them and bring them back into their own land. Does He not tell us that he doesnt want sacrifices, but a spirit of praise and thanks giving? G-d bless and people did give thanks and praise to the Lord G-d when Christ healed their infirmaties, made the blind see, cleansed the lepers, and the lame walk shalom

  53. les le Gear the church still has it wrong the pope is not G-d's representative on earth Christ is our High priest, who shed His blood for the people and the new covenant written of in Jeremiah 31 verse 31, We are justified by faith in Christ He is the Rock of which King david speaks. and the roman catholic church is not the saviour of the world, just the roman empire under the guise of christianity now having popes at the head instead of ceasars. The heart gives praise to the Lord G-d of Israel and the grace which is in Christ Jesus the Holy One of Israel,

  54. Les Le Gear The vatican still has it wrong the pope is not G-d's representative on earth, therefore nullyfying that Christ shed His blood for the new covenant spoken of in Jeremiah 31 verse 31. We are justified in Christ alone, not the roman catholic church, as He is our high priest and mediator between G-d and us, and when we come with a contrite spirit and lowly in hearts before the throne of mercy G-d forgives us our transgressions solely for the sake of Christ shalom and G-d bless

  55. This article, like many articles of its kind is trying to explain to Christians that we Jews have not killed their god and therefore they should stop showing so much hatred and evil toward us. But I beleieve this article will never work because the accusation:"You Jews killed our god, Jesus" is an illogical accusation and there cannot ever be a logical answer to illogical questions or accusations. I personally don't know how to explain to someone that I have not killed anyone, and certainly not their god, in my life! Unlike Islam or Christianity, killing and torturing others in order to make them accept" The Truth" and "Save their souls" is not a part of Jewish ideology.
    Another problem is that Christianity as it is today started and developed as a political religion, just like Islam and therefore it needed a lot of emphasis on hating others. The same way that Islam needed hatred so that they could conqeor and occupy many other nations' lands, the Church, through promoting hatred of Jews, was trying to gain power, land and money. While it was not easy to kill other Christians and steal their property, accusing Jews of something and then killing them in order to steal their land and property was easy. Therefore the Church continued with promoting more and more hatred toward Jews and of course later on this hatred was also promoted against other Christians who were accused of blasphemy and other imagined crimes so that their properties could be confiscated. Eventually, different Christian sects also continued this culture of " hating and killing people for saving their souls", against each other.
    You can argue forever with those Christians who still believe in hating Jews and no amount of logical reasoning will help because their hatred comes from their misguided hearts not their minds. One of their main complains against Jews is that Jews don't like to just believe, and instead prefer to use their minds and through logical thinking have come to this conclusion that Jesus is not god or the messiah they are waiting for (Although some have used logical thinking to get to another result.)
    The same way that Moslem have tried to force Jews and many others to accept Islam by sword, Christianity has tried to force the religion on Jews through hatred, torture and killings and condemning logical thinking.
    We Jews are lucky that people of some other religions, like Buddists or Hindus, who for example consider cows holy and worship idols, are logical enough to not hate us or other human beings for not worshiping their dieties or we would have much more explaining to do! We all have seen that people like Hindus and Buddists, don't judge and hate other people for not having the same believes as them, and show much more humanity and love toward other human beings than Christians who claim to be followers of the the religion of love.

  56. Jesus took on the sins of all mankind for all time. G-d is holy and cannot look on sin. He had to leave at that moment when Jesus "became sin." No mystery there at all. Just fact of nature of Jesus being 100% man and 100% G-d.

  57. What a sad commentary. As an American Christian, I can honestly tell you I do not know a single antisemtic Christian. My personal view, based on close Biblical reading, is that Jesus not onlu knew He would be betrayed and crucified … but he saw it as inevitable. ALL the actors in those events had to do what they did. I do not assign blame nor do I use it as an excuse to blame Jews or Romans. Without the crucifixion, there would not have been a resurrection and the promise of eternal life. As a Christian, I hold no animus. Can I get the same from my Jewish brothers?

  58. A Christian is a follower of Jesus, they are to follow after his attributes which is love, kindness, and mercy. If someone says that they are a Christian and they don't have those attributes then they are serving a religion of power, greed, and idols. A lot of ppl will say Lord, Lord and the Lord God Jehovah will say I NEVER KNEW YOU!! So all these atrocities haven't been done for Jesus, they've been done under a false guise of Christianity.

  60. Sientje Seinen. No, you believe the way you do because you are a Christian and your Bible's translation of the Torah is wrong. In Genesis 3.14, G-d was talking to the serpent. 3.14Then the L-rd G-d said to the serpent, "Because you did this, More cursed shall you be Than all cattle And all the wild beasts: On your belly shall you crawl And dirt shall you eat All the days of your life. I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your offspring and hers; They shall strike at your head, And you shall strike at their heel."

    Genesis 3.1Now the serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild beasts that the L-rd G-d had made.
    The Christian Bible reffers to the serpent as Satan and if your translation was right, in Genesis 3.14 G-d would be talking to the devil and not to the serpent, don't you think?

  61. I am an observant Masorti (conservative) Jew. I wear a knit kipa (head covering), sport a short beard and wear tzi-tzi's (fringed garment). Not a month goes by where I am approached by 1 or more missionaries trying to save me from G-d. When I was 17 as a secular Jew with little Jewish education some well meaning Christians made some very good points and gave me a copy of the NT. I read it with interest. What I found was no less then 457 verses that I considered defamatory towards my people. I started highlighting them. I handed the NT back to the one who gave it to me and told him to read the highlighted verses. Then I told him that I could never join a faith like that. I was told there was no heaven without jesus. This started my path to becoming a more committed and observant Jew. I have no hatred towards Christians and respect those that show me respect.

  62. Without getting into an endless debate over doctrinal apologetics, concerning old testament vs new testament prophecies, i'll say this to both sides: Jesus, rather you like him or not, was and is the closest person we all have to the promised Messiah. What's been written cannot be changed or altered. I love my Jewish friends, and unless they were curious about my faith and why I believe, I would not impose the harder dogmas on them–it's not my style. Therefore let's keep talking, and living in peace: that's the will of G-d.

  63. What a great conversation starter … Those verses out of context would probably result in a lot of open and honest exchanges. Sadly, the Christian friend was not prepared to engage you and learn from you. There are more references to the OT in Revelation (last book of the Bible) than any other book. We could drink a lot of coffee over that, couldn't we? 😀

  64. HAHAHA … Any well versed Christian will tell you ALL of us killed Jesus because we have all fallen short of the glory of the Lord. Sorry your Christian friend was not up to the moment. We have so much in common and too little time to argue. Be well, @Andrew.

  65. Becky Blanton Well that quote taken out of context seems to be used a lot for questions like Doreen's but it doesn't answer the question. Because what it is really saying is that IN GOD'S eyes we are all the same, but I didn't stop being female when I got saved, in fact I went on to get pregnant and give birth twice. So where do you get the idea that Jews stop being Jews when they accept the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, who was a Jew? The Messiah Yeshua did not come to save us from our Jewishness but to restore right relationship with the Father which was broken by Adam and Eve. Cleaning us up, forgiving our sins is part of the process of making us presentable to our Holy God. The Jewish people have not rejected the Messiah of Israel, what they reject is the image of the Christian Jesus that denies his life as a Jew and his connection to the Jewish people as their promised Messiah.

  66. Well the reason you are not Jewish is because you were not born with the DNA of a Jew who is a physical seed of Abraham. You are however a spiritual seed of Abraham and therefore a joint heir in the promises and covenants of Israel. It is Israel, not Jews, that are the chosen people of God. Those from the nations, aka gentiles who believe in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) become part of the commonwealth of Israel according to Eph 2 and Romans 11. Gentiles are grafted INTO the Olive Tree which is Israel.
