Antisemitism and the Jewish Jesus

The Guardians depiction of Jesus

The Guardian's depiction of Jesus

Following Howard Jacobson‘s documentary about the Jewishness of Jesus, Irene Lancaster writes:

“…some Christians seem to have a penchant for stating that Jesus was not Jewish, but Palestinian and that he would currently be siding with the Palestinians over and against dreadful Israel.

Those who would deny Jesus’ Jewishness in this way run the risk of being compared to Hitler and the Nazis, who deemed Jesus an Aryan.”

Take note, all ye friends of Sabeel.

    Some people have also claimed that Jesus was “Galilean” not Jewish, but the Galileans were Jews. All archeological evidence proves this fact. This comes from a chapter called, With Friends Like These… from Amy-Jill Levine’s book The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus.
