The Jews want peace. Not Jesus of Nazareth. The Pope gets ready to be their “peace maker”.
Pope Benedict XVI has made a sweeping exoneration of the Jewish people for the death of Jesus Christ in a new book, tackling one of the most controversial issues in Christianity.
In ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ excerpts released Wednesday, Benedict uses a biblical and theological analysis to explain why it is not true that the Jewish people as a whole were responsible for Jesus’ death.
Interpretations to the contrary have been used for centuries to justify the persecution of Jews.
While the Vatican has for five decades taught that Jews weren’t collectively responsible, Jewish scholars said Wednesday the argument laid out by the German-born pontiff, who has had his share of mishaps with Jews, was significant and would help fight anti-Semitism today.
“There’s a natural human tendency to take things for granted, and very often this tends to lead to a lapse in awareness and consciousness about the risk of anti-Semitism,” said Rabbi David Rosen, head of interreligious affairs at the American Jewish Committee and a longtime leader in Vatican-Jewish dialogue.
He noted that the Vatican issued its most authoritative document on the issue in 1965, Nostra Aetate, which revolutionized the Catholic Church’s relations with Jews by saying Christ’s death could not be attributed to Jews as a whole at the time or today.
Rosen said the pope’s words might make a bigger, more lasting mark because the faithful tend to read Scripture and commentary more so than church documents, particularly old church documents.
“It may be an obvious thing for Jews to present texts with commentaries, but normally with church magisterium, they present a document,” he said. “This is a pedagogical tool that he’s providing, so people will be able to interpret the text in keeping with orthodox Vatican teaching.”

Neither the Pope, nor the majority of Jews, are interested in turning towards Jesus the Messiah and be saved. That the Pope frees the Jewish people from being THE people who killed Jesus, does not free each individual human being from being guilty.
It was my sins that crucified Jesus. Your sins too, and the sins of each individual Jew. Only by accepting the Messiah as Lord and savior, you can enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only Jesus can save. Not Moses and Elijah, nor the Pope.
The Vatican has already told the Jews, that they can get saved without embracing Jesus as the Messiah. That makes the Pope an anti-Christ.
For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.”
Since the Jews want peace at any cost, regardless if the truth about the Kingdom of Heaven and coming judgment is preached, the Pope will soon be their perfect “peacemaker”. He will unite all World religions, and enter Jerusalem as the “man of peace”. Jesus will return and thrown this false “peace maker” into hell. The flesh of his followers will be eaten by the birds.
Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army. But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. The rest were killed with the sword coming out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.
