Many people (including in RPP) tell me that believing in Jesus is a very Jewish thing to do. Why? Because:

  • The Christian Bible was written by Jews (well, not all of it, but let’s let that slide)
  • Jesus was Jewish
  • His disciples were Jewish (again, not all of t hem, but who’s gonna nitpick?)
  • Lots of Jews these days follow him

Well, lets compare him to another false god: the Golden Calf.

The golden calf is written about in the Jewish Bible. The golden calf was made by Jews. A HUGE amount of Jews worshipped this calf (it probably had more Jewish followers than Jesus).

So what can we prove? That believing in Jesus is just as Jewish as worshipping a golden calf. (At least the golden calf features in the Jewish Bible!)
