The Church and Antisemitism

An Appalling History - An Overview

Martin Luther's "The Jews And Their Lies"

The Church has an appalling history regarding the Jewish people, so it's no wonder we just want to be left alone -and certainly want nothing to do with this 'Christian Messiah' in whose name we have been persecuted and killed for nearly two millennia.

The Church should not, however, bury its head in the sand but should acknowledge the role it has played - and then better understand the attitudes, motivations and aspirations of its long lost Brother - the Jewish people.


These study notes cover a whistle-stop tour of the two thousand years since Messiah was crucified until the modern era.

    I'm thrilled that you included John Calvin too, then and today. He's complicit too. Amen and Amen!
