Jews for Jesus
As the oldest representative body of Messianic Jews in the world, we wish to disassociate ourselves from the Jews For Jesus video “That Jew Died for You”.
Portraying Jesus as an Auschwitz victim distorts both the nature of Jesus’ death and the history of the Holocaust. Many British Messianic Jews who lost family members in the Shoah are distressed by this video. The BMJA rejects such use of sensationalist imagery, preferring mature theological discussion.
