As the church continued to rationalize the destruction of the Temple and Israel’s exile from the land, it determined that the Jews were responsible for the death of Christ.
In 167, Melito, the Bishop of Sardis was the first to accuse the Jews of deicide. In his sermon, “Homily of Passover” he argued that by “crucifying Jesus, the Jews had “murdered God, and therefore the Jewish people as a whole were guilty of the crime.”
The accusation “Christ killer” led to atrocities and violence against Jews for over 2000+
Renounce the lie
All this happened to you for you killed “the Just One”
Replace with the truth
Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him;
He has put Him to grief. (Isaiah 53:10 NKJV)
