Jews for Jesus video shows Jesus being sent to Nazi gas chambers

(JTA) — The Anti-Defamation League has condemned a video produced by Jews for Jesus, which shows Jesus in the selection line at a Nazi concentration camp.

The video, which was posted on YouTube on April 2 by the Messianic organization, has garnered more than 1.1 million hits.

It is called “That Jew Died For You.”

In the three-minute video, Jesus is shown carrying a cross as a Nazi officer standing at the gates of Auschwitz sends him to the gas chambers. “Just another Jew,” the officer says.

“The Jews for Jesus video is a cynical abuse of the Holocaust for purposes of proselytizing,” said Abraham Foxman, ADL national director and a Holocaust survivor in a statement issued Wednesday. “It is deeply offensive not only to Jews who lost family members in the Holocaust, but also to Christians who would not want to see images of Jesus used for propaganda or shock value.”

He called it an “outrageous cheapening” of the tragedy of the Holocaust.

The video has gained more prominence in recent days in the run-up to Holocaust Remembrance Day on April 28.

    I just authored a new book “The Holocaust as seen through Film. ” I do not believe Jesus was the MESSIAH, but I do believe he was a Jew. If he were at Auschwitz he would have been murdered just for being a Jew. This should be the message for all mankind. We together, people of all religions, should fight evil. IT was the teachings of the Church not Jesus, that allowed Hitler to spread his ideology of hatred for the Jews. Jesus lived and died a Jew. I am happy that the teachings of the Church regarding the Jewish people have changed. During this period of Easter and Passover, as well as the remembrance of the Holocaust may love conquer evil and may we together fight the hatred and intolerance. A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO THE CHRISTIANS WHO SUPPORT THE STATE OF ISRAEL. This film would not lure the Jews to become a Jew for Jesus. Just the opposite. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    There may be those who believe I am being used by Jews for Jesus or Christian groups by allowing by article to be published. My answer is simply I seek a world where I and my family, 4 children and so far 7 grandchildren can observe Torah and mitzvoth, the 5 books of Moses and the commandments. I seek a world where instead of fighting each other we can love and help each other. As an observant Jew I WILL LIVE AND DIE OBSERVING Jewish law and so will by children and grandchildren. The message of peace, shalom, is a message of comfort. That is my blessing for all of us. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    CHRISTIANITY persecuted the Jews throughout the ages in the name of Jesus. The Jews were to be the wandering people with no land. This was the message of the Church. . Hitler FOLLOWED THE DICTATES of Martin Luther who truly hated the Jews. Jesus had nothing to do with this, but all was done in his name. Rabbi DR. BERNHARD Rosenberg
