      I haven’t read Dr. Brown’s book about Christian persecution of the Jews but as he described it, I think I would appreciate it.

      Unless we learn lessons from our history, we are doomed to repeat it.

      We Christians have a history of justifying persecution and oppression with the Bible.

      We persecuted the Jews, of course, but also the Muslims during the Crusades, “heretics” during the Inquisition, blacks during slavery/segregation and women during the rise of feminism.

      In every case, Christians believed the Bible was telling them these groups of people were morally inferior, a threat to society, and deserved their second class status.

      (You probably guessed where I am going with this.)

      Today, many Christians believe the Bible says that gays don’t deserve the same rights as the rest of us because of their moral failure.

      Would you at least consider the possibility that we Christians are repeating history?

      Greg,

      Thanks for your comments.

      First, where there was actually violent persecution of Jews by the Church, it was a totally apostate Church with virtually no connection to Scripture. True Christians have often been Israel’s best friends.

      Second, how can you compare an apostate Church telling Jews to choose between baptism and death with Christians telling gay activists that we’re not willing to redefine marriage based on someone sexual and romantic desires. Have you really thought the comparison through? I mean no insult, but your question actually surprises me.

      Grace to you!

      @Greg Allen,

      How about you “at least consider the possibility that” the Bible means what it says about homosexuality?

      The videos in Arad showing the harassing of
      the Messianic Congregation was quite distributing,
      to say the least. First the Messiancs were not
      bothering anyone. Second they had a Chess Club
      for senior citizens who loved the game. If
      the G-er Hasidism desired to do outreach for
      unaffiliated Jews,why don’t they offer the
      same venu as this Messianic Congregation had done.
      More unsettleing is how one group persecutes
      another group for a different interpretation of
      the Bible. One memeber of another Messianic Congregation called Hasadei Yeshua,told me
      how the Ger Hasidim in Arad tried setting on
      fire a small conservative shul in that city.
      There was even a fist fight between members of
      Chabad and Ger in Arad in the shul of the Ger
      Hasidism on a Shabbat. I’m sure they were not
      debating Talmud.
      Of course the majority of Orthodox Jews do
      not condon any viloent action aganist anyone
      with different beliefs. They certainly disagree
      with the Messianics,but are no violent.
      After watching those videos and one of the
      Ger chaps said that Jesus was for the Jews
      not wanted,rejected,etc this caught my attention
      to delve further into the New Testament. I’m
      always for the under dog(not the cool cartoon
      of the 1960′s) As a Jewish chap, I certainly
      view Jesus as Rebbe Yeshua. I haven’t reached
      the point of Messiah yet,but wonders are
      being revealed to me.

      Theodore Jessa,

      I am wondering if you have considered the time frame that the book of Daniel tells us that Messiah would come ended, and therefore must have been fulfilled, before the first half of the first century of the Common Era. Is there any teacher of righteousness, other than the one described in the gospels, that can be a candidate for the promised Messiah that came at the correct time? This question must be answered one way or the other and cannot be brushed off or marginalized.

      Shalom
