Passover Easter Overlap
By Micah Halpern

Monday April 18, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Passover and Easter overlapped this year.

That coincidence provides a perfect opportunity to illustrate how certain aspects of Christianity misread the life of Jesus and that misunderstanding led to the persecution of Jews over the millennia.

For instance, whenever the Passion (the story of the crucifixion in Christian tradition) is read - anti-Jewish acts happen in its wake. The theology emerges out of an idea called supersessionism.

Supersessionism is the concept that Christianity replaced Judaism. It is best seen in the Christian names of the Bibles. And in the New versus the Old in the idea that the new Christian Bible takes the place of the old Hebrew Bible.

It is also seen in the notion that Jesus was lapse in His Jewish observance. New scholarship, with very few exceptions, totally reject this. They assert that Jesus was an observant Jew, including issues of ritual purity.

If more Christians studied and were taught the real roots of Jesus, it would go a long way to fighting the awful plague of Jew hatred ravaging the world today.
