Jerome Inez Friad. All Christians are children of Israel

Heartbeats are not limited to those who feel feelings of love. They can also nurture many feelings that are nourishing for the true emotions of the heart and direction. This may be the passion of an era whose culture we admire…or that of a historical figure…even that of a city with great architecture…but also that of the land, you promised and controversial A land today inhabited by a heterogeneous people though united and united by the same values, a land whose misfortune is not recorded anywhere, in any text, by any prophet; Here is what must be said, reiterated and struck again: Israel’s misfortune exists only through those who reject its peace.

Let’s look at the ruins where Salome danced… Let’s look at this hollow in its bottom where John the Baptist was imprisoned… Let’s remember Joshua setting the sun in the valley of Avalon… And David, the little shepherd victorious over Goliath… Here is a beach Ashkelon where Samson recognized the cunning Delilah who cut her hair to destroy his power and wreak havoc… On that same shore, a whale brought Jonah back into the light of day…

yes. Let’s look. Let’s look. Remember. Finally, we understand that the collective memory of Israel must be a possibility of unity, not division. union between peoples. All peoples. To exchange it from taking the road to Salem. These were Jews, and some became Christians. Whoever cares about the synagogues and the churches suffers from twinning.

Temples are silent churches. Without a bell or a drone. God is reserved there because the Jewish spirit does not preach. Christian bells ask forgiveness for repentant souls. They remember the rest of life, strength and hope to preserve our eternity. Lots of useless hypotheses for the Jewish people that do not explain. Judaism takes note of the facts. Just. any thing else.

Christians must establish a relationship with Israel in order to rediscover the love of the Bible so dear to the Jews. History also testifies that Israel needs Christians. It was they, the Hebrews or descendants of the Hebrews, who made the God of Israel known throughout the world. They are the ones who translated the Hebrew Bible and conveyed its message. But also those who do not know anything about the Gospels even though they believe in testimony about Jewish life and beliefs in the first century. From it emerge precious truths and strengthen and enrich the roots of Judaism.

The resurrection of Christ – exactly the idea that it happened – defines the real difference between Jews and Christians. However, difference does not mean division. There are enough points in common between the children of Abraham and the children of Christ to imagine the doubt of the former and the certainty that the latter are able to come together under favorable auspices. Moreover, Christ’s last words in Pain on the Cross: “Eli, Elie why Sebastani?” Oh my God, why did you leave me? “,” It forces us to realize that he himself doubts. It is a skeptical man who hardly believes in a distance. Thus, no Christian can claim uncertainty and doubt because the merits of the soul that recognize the resurrection of Christ provoke above all hope in God, not certainty of his existence.

About ! What is the resurrection?

The word comes from the Latin resurrection – ” Recovery “. We can be resurrected socially in the light of a new life, or physically after a long illness, but only the resurrection of Jesus takes such a large letter. It is venerated by Christians and disputed by Jews since the Old Testament did not mention any eternal life for Christ. On the other hand, it is strange to imagine the eschatological message of the Councils against the message of the Christian churches. The Old Testament and the New Testament complement each other in one book. Their message aims to unify certainty and beliefs…. Evidence and hypotheses … Jews and Christians.

Two years after the end of World War II, the Catholic and Protestant clergy met with a group of rabbis to refocus Christian faith in the face of anti-Semitism. Among these evidence, note that the basic commandment of Christianity – to love God and your neighbor, already proclaimed in the Old Testament and confirmed by Jesus – pertains to Jews and Christians in all human relations without exception. Moreover, it is advisable to avoid talking about the Jews as if the early members of the Christian Church were not. Because this point is fundamental, all Christians are Jews. Jesus was born from a Jewish mother of the line of David, that is, from the people of Israel. His enduring love and forgiveness includes his people (who have converted or not converted to Christianity) as well as the entire world. In fact, Jews and Christians are the children of Israel.
