Christianity is ROOTED in Judaism. Have you forgotten that Jesus lived as a Jew? He never denied ANY of the Jewish teachings. He simply enhanced them with the Love Of God. The Words Of The Gospel are NOT just in the New Testament, They are included in the ENTIRE Bible. The Old Testament is Jewish. The Old AND New Testaments are Christian. If you read the Bible from cover to cover, you will understand that Christians are ADOPTED Jews. Personally, I am Catholic and I use a slightly different Bible than other Christians. But, when I get involved in a religious debate, I use the Old King James Version of the Bible, since it seems to be the most acceptable version. It tells me I am an ADOPTED Jew AND a Christian.

It was described by Paul as a grafting process, a very good analogy. You can graft a branch of an apple tree into a pear tree and you get... a pear tree with a branch that bears apples.

Funny the Bible writers went to so much trouble to stress that there was "neither Jew nor Greek/gentile" in the Church. The Church was not a way to turn Gentiles Jewish, and that's not how the salvation plan for the world was documented to work in either the Old or New Testaments.

"Art" can smooth the rough edges of life, nurturing beauty and imagination, and showing a different and provocative way of looking at the world, but artists -- and museums and galleries that show their work -- are sometimes surprised by the hostile reception their works provoke. Sensitivity to the feelings of the public, the consumers of art, is not necessarily a cultivated art.

The Jewish Museum in Berlin is learning that lesson with an exhibit innocently described as "The Whole Truth: Everything You Wanted to Know About Jews."

Such an exhibit is particularly appropriate in Germany, where there aren't any longer...
