Drinking at the Sources
The schism between Israel and the Christian Church is rooted in the most profound reality in history.
When Jesus said that He was the Messiah, was His contention not to have consequences in a land occupied by Roman legions since 66 B. C.? In a land where leaders of resistance movements had regularly been proclaimed king and Messiah by their troops? Alas, messianic adventures were not uncommon in those times! Many of them ended in atrocious massacres.
Drinking at the Sources separates historical fact from fiction in an attempt to discover what was responsible for the hatred between early Christians and Jews that carries on to this day. It seeks to identify, from each side’s viewpoint, the decisive factors and arguments both sides have used in constructing seemingly insurmountable walls.
