January 13: Christian Anti-Semitism – Edict of Milan

-Edict of Milan

From the beginning, Jews and Gentiles who followed Yeshua were considered a part of Judaism. The “official” differentiation came by the Edict of Milan in 314 when Constantine recognized Christianity as a separate religion. 

The edict was welcomed as it proclaimed “tolerance” for all people in the empire to enjoy worship as they desired. However, that tolerance did not extend to the Jews.  In 315 Constantine issued another edict forbidding Jews to live in Jerusalem and ordering any Jew who attacked a Christian or any Gentile who converted to Judaism to be burned.[1]

Renounce the lie

In God’s sight, the Jews are dangerous and abominable.


Replace with God’s truth


But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me,
And my Lord has forgotten me.”
 “Can a woman forget her nursing child,
And not have compassion on the son of her womb?
Surely they may forget,
Yet I will not forget you.
 See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands;
Your walls are continually before Me.
(Isaiah 49:14-16 NJKV)

God promised Israel hundreds of years before Yeshua was crucified, that her name was inscribed (pierced) in His hands.
