Anti-semitism in the Bible

Hitler considered himself a defender of Christianity, both

Catholic and Protestant, against all other belief systems,

especially against Secular Humanism (see Main Kampf). Hitler was

a great admirer of Martin Luther. In Luther's book "On Jews and

Their Lies" Luther justifies his hatred of the Jews by using the

utterances by Jesus against the Jews in Matt 3:7, Matt 11:18,

John 8:39,44, etc which I did not use in the following to show

that the Bible supports this EVIL called anti-semitism.

John 5:16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and

sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the

sabbath day.

John 5:18 * Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him,

because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that

God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

John 7:1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he

would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.

John 8:51 * Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep

my saying, he shall never see death. 52 Then said the Jews unto

him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and

the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall

never taste of death. 53 Art thou greater than our father

Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest

thou thyself?

John 18:35 * Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation

and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast

thou done?

John 19:4 * Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith

unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know

that I find no fault in him. 5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing

the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And [Pilate] saith

unto them, Behold the man! 6 When the chief priests therefore

and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify [him],

crucify [him]. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify

[him]: for I find no fault in him. 7 The Jews answered him, We

have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made

himself the Son of God. 8 When Pilate therefore heard that

saying, he was the more afraid;

John 19:12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release

him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go,

thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king

speaketh against Caesar.

John 19:14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and

about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your

King! 15 But they cried out, Away with [him], away with [him],

crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King?

The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. 16. Then

delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they

took Jesus, and led [him] away.

John 19:19* And Pilate wrote a title, and put [it] on the

cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE

JEWS. 20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place

where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was

written in Hebrew, [and] Greek, [and] Latin. 21 Then said the

chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the

Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews. 22 Pilate

answered, What I have written I have written.

1 Thessalonians 2:14 * For ye, brethren, became followers

of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for

ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even

as they [have] of the Jews: 15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus,

and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please

not God, and are contrary to all men:

Acts 13:50 But the Jews stirred up the devout and

honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised

persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of

their coasts.
