January 25: Christian Anti-Semitism – Blood Libel

Blood libel

The blood libel is one of the two most destructive lies and has resulted in millions of Jews being killed…and it’s a lie that is still perpetuated unto today!  What is the lie?

Jews kidnap and murder the children of Christians in order to use their blood to make matzah for Passover and for other rituals during the Feasts of the Lord.

Usually those who blame the Jews had murdered the child themselves in order to accuse the Jews.  Sometimes the child was a victim of an accident or later found unharmed.

Often cruel torture was used to force confessions and the made-up charges would serve as a pretext to slander and attack whole Jewish communities.

The blood-libel first appeared with the death of William of Norwich (2 February 1132)


Renounce the lie

The Jewish people, “kill children and collect their blood in order to knead it into the bread that is eaten at Passover. Today they are trying to say that these things never happened, and that it was a joke or a lie, but these are the facts of history.”  (2015 from a Hamas official)


Replace with truth

Leviticus 7:26-27

  You shall not eat any blood in any of your dwellings, whether of bird or beast.  Whoever eats any blood, that person shall be cut off from his people.” NKJV


Where the blood libel was perpetuated throughout Europe.
