This is a revealing examination of the development of religious animosity through the manufacturing of an anti-Semitic and anti-Judaism atmosphere that remains widespread in Christian society today. This study uncovers how the early Christian Church Fathers' torturous manipulation of the Hebrew Bible, caused the marginalization of the Jews socially, economically, legally, theologically, and spiritually. The most insidious weapon that Christians have used was to employ the Jew's own sacred literature against them. This book assembles and analyzes the texts from the Hebrew Bible that were used by early Christians to justify their own anti-Judaism sentiment.
