Palestinians Erasing Christian History – Evelyn Gordon

(Daily Alert)

When the Palestinians claim that Jesus was a Palestinian, it’s not only Jewish history and the Jewish religion Palestinians thereby erase. They are also erasing Christian history and the Christian religion. What becomes of the famous scene of Jesus evicting money-changers from the Temple if, as Palestinian officials claim, the Temple never existed? What becomes of Mary’s husband Joseph, who was “of the house and lineage of David” (Luke 2:4), if, as Palestinians claim, the Davidic kingdom never existed?

    The entire story of Jesus as related in the Gospels takes place in a Jewish state with a largely autonomous Jewish political and religious leadership. If no Jewish state ever existed, how did these foundational Christian stories ever occur? Absent the historic Jewish kingdom of the Gospels, there quite literally is no Jesus. (Commentary)
