Pope exonerates Jews for Jesus’ death in new book



Published: Wed, March 2, 2011 @ 2:45 p.m.

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI has made a sweeping exoneration of the Jewish people for the death of Jesus Christ, tackling one of the most controversial issues in Christianity in a new book. In “Jesus of Nazareth-Part II” excerpts released today, Benedict explains biblically and theologically why there is no basis in Scripture for the argument that the Jewish people as a whole were responsible for Jesus’ death.

I'm not sure what Bible he's using, but Acts 2:36 seems very clear to me.

Whom ye have crucified - See Acts 2:23. There was nothing better suited to show them the guilt of having done this than the argument which Peter used. He showed them that God had sent him as the Messiah, and that he had showed his love for him in raising him from the dead. The Son of God, and the hope of their nation, they had put to death. He was not an impostor, nor a man sowing sedition, nor a blasphemer, but the Messiah of God; and they had imbrued their hands in his blood. There is nothing better suited to make sinners fear and tremble than to show them that, in rejecting Christ, they have rejected God; in refusing to serve him they have refused to serve God. The crime of sinners has a double malignity, as committed against a kind and lovely Saviour, and against the God who loved him, and appointed him to save people. Compare

How about the Italians, They were the one's that actually killed Jesus, have they been forgiven. Oh, thats right 99% of the Popes in history have been Italian , so they never were blamed in the first place.

And the vindy.com guys see themselves as more qualified to interpret scripture than the Pope. Alrighty, then.
