THE HINDUS IN ROMAN PALESTINE | 2000-10-21
Jesus said, "No man reaches the Father but by me." In other words, according to Jesus, you were either a Christian or you were not.
But many people assure us that when He said that, He did not mean that it applied to the Jews. Jews are special, Jews are an exception, and a Jewish homeland has a right -- because of our religion -- to claim Christian lives and money to defend it.
Which brings up an interesting question. When Jesus said that no man reaches the Father but by Him, who exactly was He talking to? Those who tell us he did not include the Jews know their Bible very well, so obviously He was talking to somebody else besides Jews.
That means that Jesus was talking to non-Jews. When Jesus went through Palestine, no Jews heard Him. The place was obviously full of Hindus and Buddhists.
Obviously, those who have made this great historical breakthrough need to explain it to those of us who didn't know that, at the time of Christ, Israel was full of Hindus.
