Reply To: Why is it important for Christians to keep the sad history of Christian antisemitism in mind when responding to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the present?

Hi Thomas, I like what you mentioned about remembering the past and gracefully walking with those still feeling the effects thousands of years later of anti-Semitism from those claiming to know Christ. It takes a lot of grace to move forward after learning about the atrocities that Christians in the past have committed in the name of Jesus. Looking back on it, it is disappointing that those individuals acted in the way they did and left such a negative taste in the mouths of so many regarding Jesus and Christianity. I think each of us today should remember that we are part of writing a different story by loving the Jewish people.
