  1. Very interesting article. Being raised a Christian and having the pastor of the first church I joined as an adult, a messianic Jew, I learned to love scripture and my Jewish roots.
    Please Correct the statement that those who refused to give room to Joseph and Mary were Christian. They were all Jews- Jesus, Mary, Joseph and innkeepers. Followings of Jesus Christ were first called Christian in Antioch. And like the Jews you described, they were persecuted. Please understand the European Christians who persecuted the Jews were not the Christians of the 1st century. It’s a shame they didn’t learn from our persecuted Jewish brothers; now Christians are the persecuted faith, in this country (USA), and in the 10-40 window.
    Thank you for reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas- salvation to the Jews first and also the Greeks.

  2. All well known “christian” holidays are pagan in origin with easter (goddess of fertility) as one of the most vile in origin, rabbits, eggs???
    I do some christmas activities within the freedom that I have in knowing who I am in Christ Jesus, but I take none of those holidays serious. I would be more apt to celebrate the Jewish Holy Days given an opportunity.
    I recently was blessed with the opportunity to teach three Hasidic gentlemen on a technical subject for their mfg facility in NJ and I had to explain that most Christians do not give any credence to this replacement theology garbage. Never understood anti-Semitic attitudes, whats not to love.
