January 27: Christian Anti-Semitism – Inquistion

Inquisition

There wasn’t a single inquisition, but actually a series around Europe.

They were created to search out what the Catholic church considered heresy or apostates but they soon changed direction to target Jews and Judaism.

The first inquisition was started in France in 1184, but the “official start was in the 1230’s when the Pope appointed the first “inquisitors of heretical depravity.”

The Talmud and other Jewish books were burned in 1242 and the first mass burning of Jews at the stake was in 1288.  

Inquisitions continued until the 19th century.  The last execution was in 1826!

 

Renounce the lie

“I doubt whether a Jew can really be human, they are monstrous animals, brute beasts.”  (Peter the Venerable, known as the “meekest of men and a model of Christianity)

 

Replace with truth

Ezekiel 16:8

When I passed by you again and looked upon you, indeed your time was the time of love; so I spread My wing over you and covered your nakedness. Yes, I swore an oath to you and entered into a covenant with you, and you became Mine,” says the Lord God. NKJV

 

Jews have been tortured throughout the centuries, because of false accusations, hatred, forced conversions and ultimately for medical experiments.
