ON THIS SERIES OF WRITINGS ABOUT CHRIST AND THE JEWS

I have written this series on Christ and the Jews not to discriminate against the Jews but to lend understanding of one of the greatest moments in the history of our planet and possibly the history of other universes. This is my second attempt to alleviate discrimination, the first being “Bias Hate Crimes,” which is also on this website.
It is interesting that I am writing this forward on Saturday, April 15, 2006, the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. I have based these writings on my study of Holy Scripture, my 34 years involvement with the Inner Peace Movement founded by Francisco Coll (see the website on the Americana Leadership College, www.alcworld.com) and a review using the wonderful tool, the internet.
The Jews did not kill Christ; the Roman Empire did for his sedition. Yet, most upon any cursory reading of the Bible would agree that at least some of the Jews were implicated in his death. I say some of them were, but not the majority. The majority, “the silent majority,” recognized the greatness of Christ, or the Messiah, and were actually offended and terribly hurt by his untimely death.
In “Christ and the Jews Expanded” I have also summarily incorporated what I believe to be one of the most outstanding works of Karl Jung, the “Answer to Job.” The “Answer to Job” is about the promise of the Messiah to come (I am referring to the first coming of the Messiah). Jung states that the Messiah was to atone for the “sin” of God for his conspiracy with the devil.
The “Answer to Job” is not only about Job, but to a greater or lesser degree, about the story of almost every person who has ever existed. At the moment of the greatest opportunity of free will each of us has, before we choose to incarnate upon this planet, we learn substantial information about our lifetime to be: our parents, our spiritual helpers, the major events, including who we marry, our diseases, and the nature of our death. We then have a choice to whether to choose this incarnation. And, of course, if we do not choose it, the opportunity is lost.
Some of us choose lifetimes where many would not, such as of an infant who will starve or will be put to death. Life is created. Yet, as noted by such a lifetime, where forces could intervene to save the child’s life, they do not, because the force that leads to the child’s death is stronger.
However, somewhere in time a soul may have a similar opportunity to grow, whether in this universe or another. There may, however, be eons of time before a similar opportunity is available, because there is a lengthy waiting list for a desired incarnation.
Yet, when we choose a lifetime, it is not the same as experiencing it, and sometimes most of us, even if we are aware of our earlier choice, even if it is substantially positive, have our regrets. Personally, my experience of my current lifetime has sometimes evoked my comments such as, “Why me, O Lord?”, “Lord have mercy upon me,” and “There but for the Grace of God go I.”

Yet I can also truthfully say that I would give my life to save another, as thankfully would many on this planet.

CHRIST AND THE JEWS

For over 5,000 years the Jews suffered ignominiously. Before Christ, God seemed to continuously be with them and punished them severely when they went astray. Their prophets promised the greatness of Christ would uplift them, and yet they also prophesied that he would be crucified.
A man called Christ (synonymous with the “Messiah”) came and indicated that he would not establish an empire for the Jews and make up for the way God treated them. Feeling let down, they persecuted and killed him.
Weren't the Jews used and did not Christ use his own apostle, Judas, to effect his own crucifixion and death in fulfillment of the prophecies, and thereby to assist in establishing a world religion?
Judas loved Christ. Yet he identified with many of the Jews who expected Christ to establish a kingdom, and because of this he considered betraying him. Yet Christ repeatedly provoked Judas to go about his business of "betraying" him to the Jews. As a result of this provocation, and when he realized what he had done, Judas commits suicide.
To this day many of the Jews do not acknowledge that He was the Christ, for they could not face the guilt that they would feel.
Because many believe that Christ has not yet come, they feel let down even more, because even though they believed God mistreated them in the past, He was at least present. Now they feel abandoned.
Some Jews have acknowledged that Jesus was indeed the Christ. Yet, many of them are waiting for the first coming of the Christ, while much of the rest of the world is waiting for the second. Assuming he does come again, a split in world expectations may occur due to differences in perceptions and expectations. A man cannot serve two masters---yet, can the master satisfy those who share diverse expectations?
Also, I believe that if Christ comes again, He will not condemn. The current semblance of free will will still exist, since God is always with us and loves us.

CHRIST AND THE JEWS EXPANDED

Many millennium ago we were visited by creatures from the stars who were like gods to us. They chose the ancestors of the Jews for their experiments to advance the human-like race and severely punished those that did not obey their procedures. They did this to incorporate their DNA into these, our ancestors,’ bodies to advance them physically.
Throughout their history the survivors recited the so-called atrocity performed upon them. In part to alleviate this pain and also because of the yearning of the spirit of mankind, a prophecy was made that God would incarnate as one of them, as the Messiah, and raise them as kings and conquerors of the world. Yet another prophesied that the
Messiah would give his life to redeem the human race.
Along came the Messiah. Many prophecies were made about his lifetime, so his training was geared toward the development of a being that had immense spiritual powers. His charisma was so great that he attracted many followers to assist him in establishing the Christian religion.
Yet the Jews remembered the millenniums of pain, suffering and discrimination and were very angry that they were not about to be blessed with much abundance. Their chief priests were even provoked by the man called Christ and several times tried to kill him but were unable to do so until the timing was right.
When the timing was right, the Messiah provoked Judas to notify the hierarchy of the Jews that he was available. Judas should not be called the betrayer of the Messiah, because the Messiah actually had to coerce Judas to notify the Jewish authorities.
Even while the Messiah was being persecuted, his tormentors were hoping that he would prove himself to be their King by using his immense spiritual power. Many of his persecutors directed their thoughts to him, saying “We have been tormented for millenniums! Show us that you are the Messiah come to give us great abundance!”

Christ heard their requests, and said, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing,” and he actually allowed himself to die so his resurrection could take place.
For millennium the Jews have carried their guilt. However, upon passing on, they were greeted by the Messiah. Not only were they forgiven, they heard expressions of remorse.
They were told that many times the Almighty yielded his power to the negative side, in part to show the greatness of his creation, as in the Book of Job. The Messiah gave his life in atonement. He indicated that all mankind goes through losses and grows through them. They were also told that by being good and faithful servants they were entitled to the rewards denied them while they were on earth.
