THE MYSTERY OF JEWISH HISTORY

THE MYSTERY OF JEWISH HISTORY

ByVladimir Moss

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
“The Jewish Question” remains as topical – and controversial – as ever. Some Orthodox Christians speak and write on little else, considering it to be the question, the question that everyone must understand if they are to understand the essence of the modern world and of Christian history in general. They see the fount of all evil in the manipulation of world events by a small sect of God-hating and manhating Talmudist rabbis. Others are shocked by this attitude, considering it to be anti-semitic, and turn away in disgust whenever the subject is raised. They regard any such idea as serious sin, lack of love and the prolongation of the lies that incited the pogroms and the holocaust. If we turn to the Holy Scriptures and Church Tradition, then we find some confirmation for both points of view. On the one hand, the Apostle Paul calls the Jews who reject Christ “dogs” (Philippians 3.2); he devotes a whole epistle (Galatians), and large parts of other epistles, to the threat of the Judaizers; and in general treats the Jews as the main enemies of the Christians. On the other hand, he writes: “Has God cast away His people? God forbid” (Romans 11.1); he warns the Christian Gentiles not to boast or be high-minded in relation to the Jews, but to fear lest they themselves fall away (Romans 11.20); for “hardness in part has come upon Israel until the fullness of Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel [believing Jews and Gentiles together] shall be saved” (Romans 11.25-26). So what is the truth about the Jews? And what should be our attitude towards them? In attempting to answer these questions, I shall adopt an historical approach, beginning with the Jews’ calling by God through Abraham to become God’s people, the chosen race, until their apostasy from Christ in the first century (parts I and II); continuing with the long period in which they lived primarily under Christian rulers of one kind or another (part III); then their emergence onto modern history after the French revolution as an independent political force to be reckoned with by all other players (part IV).
