Jesus was anti-semitic

The Parable of the wicked tenants:

“Hear another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it, dug a wine press in it, and built a tower. Then he leased it to tenants and went on a journey.

When vintage time drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants to obtain his produce.

But the tenants seized the servants and one they beat, another they killed, and a third they stoned.

Again he sent other servants, more numerous than the first ones, but they treated them in the same way.

Finally, he sent his son to them, thinking, ‘They will respect my son.’

But when the tenants saw the son, they said to one another, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and acquire his inheritance.’

They seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him.

What will the owner of the vineyard do to those tenants when he comes?”

They answered him, “He will put those wretched men to a wretched death and lease his vineyard to other tenants who will give him the produce at the proper times.”

Jesus said to them, “Did you never read in the scriptures:
‘The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
by the Lord has this been done,
and it is wonderful in our eyes’?

Therefore, I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that will produce its fruit.

Here Jesus lays it out as clear as day. The Jews would not heed him, but rather killed him just as they killed the prophets he sent before himself. So, the status they held as God’s people will be taken away from them and given to the Church. Moreover, it is confirmed elsewhere that the Jews will eventually be converted, and thereby cease to exist as a people, thus the Jewish people qua group will be figuratively “put to death”.

There are, of course, a great many more parts of the Gospels where Jesus says very critical things about the Jews (calling them a brood of vipers, children of the devil, etc.). This is one of the most politically incorrect aspects of Christianity, but it needs to be explicitly understood in order to fully break with the spirit of the age.

As a side-note, there’s also an (imperfect) analogy which can provide a lesson for us. For the last two millennia, white people have been bestowed by God with many blessings, including superiority in nearly every way over the other peoples of the world (intellectual, technological, medical, etc.) But just as God removed his blessing from the Jewish people, gave it to others, and promised to ultimately destroy them as a corporate group, so too if we do not repent, he may do the same to us. If current events are any indicator, this may be in progress already.

One thought on “Jesus was anti-semitic

  1. I always felt the term counter-semitic was more accurate, and of course we have the words of the saints on the devilish practices of the Jews in diaspora. Wherever they go, they cause strife and discord.
