February 11: God’s unique relationship with Israel

The new Gentile church made up reasons in order to understand why God allowed the Romans to destroy the Temple. One reason was the Theology of Deicide. From 70 AD until 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

 

The Lord says, “It was my plan to crush him
    and cause him to suffer.
    I made his life an offering to pay for sin.
But he will see all his children after him.
    In fact, he will continue to live.
    My plan will be brought about through him.

 

The new Gentile Church said the Jewish people killed the Just One and the prophets before Him.  They also said that they reject people who believe in Him.  This is one of the reasons they gave for why the Temple was destroyed. This is a lie to be rejected and is not the truth as found in God’s Word.

 God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son. Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life. John 3:16
