February 11: God’s unique relationship with Israel

One of the explanations the new church devised to understand why God allowed the Romans to destroy the Temple was the Theology of Deicide. From 70 AD unto today, many in the Church accuse the Jewish people of deicide, killing God.  Justin Martyr was one of the first of the Church Fathers who promoted the lie of Deicide.

 

Isaiah 53:10

Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him;
He has put Him to grief.
When You make His soul an offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.

 

Renounce the lie of Deicide:

“All this happened to you right and well because you killed the Just One and His prophets before Him, and now you reject and …dishonor those who set their hopes on Him and God Almighty and Maker of the universe who sent Him.” (paraphrased)

Replace with the truth:

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life
