You’ll be seeing lots of headlines now with the new book by Pope Benedict coming out:
Pope exonerates Jews for Jesus’ death in new book
Pope’s New Book: Jews Not to Blame for Killing Jesus
Who Killed Jesus? In His New Book Pope Benedict XVI Probes the Great Questions Surrounding the Last Week of Jesus’ Earthly Life
These are just a few headlines out there.
Does the pope or anyone reading these articles have any idea as to what the Bible says about this subject? at all? Of course the Jewish people of the time were chanting: Crucify Him! Crucify Him! and of course the Romans had part in it as well– Who do you think invented the cross execution? But should we take part in such discussions over and over and over again? NO! This subject won’t help anyone feel better about anything, whether you are a Jew, Roman, Italian, American, Canadian, British, South African, or Saudi Arabian. The point is that Yeshua Messiah died! How he died does line up with the Old Testament prophecies and because He died, WE HAVE BEEN REDEEMED!!!! Hallelujah!!! Rejoice people that Yeshua (Jesus) died for us, and rejoice that he isn’t still dead like all the false gods out there : Buddha, Muhammed, Popes, Joseph Smith, and whoever else people worship today (pop stars, your children, your wife or husband, etc).
If you haven’t made Yeshua Messiah your Savior, find out more about Him , read the New Testament and go back and search the Old Testament and find out how much He indeed loves you. Make him the Lord of your life and you will inherit everlasting life with Him! How amazing is his grace, that he should save a wretched soul like mine! May Yahweh Bless you today!
