"The historical and biblical questions surrounding the notion that there was a formal Sanhedrin trial argue for extreme caution and, perhaps, even abandoning the device."
Really? I invite these Judaic leaders to tear the rabbinic account of Christ's trial before the Sanhedrin out of their "holy" canon before they even think about approaching us with such a request, and even then I'd tell these phony "elder brothers" to get lost. The chutzpah knows no bounds. And the Vatican plays right along with it. The rabbis don't question the historical reality of Christ's trial before the Sanhedrin and subsequent execution. Among themselves, they revel in it. Read the Talmudic account of Christ's trial before the Sanhedrin and execution here:
For the sake of His Passion
and how this rabbinic teaching is manifest:
The Crucifixion Narrative for Goys vs. the Crucifixion Narrative Which the Rabbis Maintain Amongst Themselves
Vic Alhadeff, the director of the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies is wailing of imminent Christian pogroms against "Jews" while in the real world Israeli Orthodox "Jews" are burning hundreds of New Testaments as a religious "mizvah."
The Judaic canon is rotten with incitements to violence against "Gentiles," particularly Christians. What is being done about that? The rabbis and the Vatican together are engaged in a cover-up of massive proportions here.
Papal show raises concerns in Sydney
A procession planned during a visit by Pope Benedict XVI could incite anti-Semitism, Australian Jewish leaders warned.
Roman Catholic officials in Sydney already have cut back a Stations of the Cross procession to be staged during the pope's visit in July, from 14 stations to eight, but one segment still raises concerns, according to Vic Alhadeff, the director of the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies. It is the third station, where Jesus is condemned by the Sanhedrin, the ancient Jewish tribunal.
"We are concerned at how this scene will be dramatized if it is to be retained," Alhadeff said after a May 20 board resolution expressed disappointment at its inclusion. "The historical and biblical questions surrounding the notion that there was a formal Sanhedrin trial argue for extreme caution and, perhaps, even abandoning the device," the resolution said.
A spokesman for the procession's organizers said that "we've accommodated them [the Jews] where appropriate, but we’re unable to change the New Testament. Ultimately, we’re acknowledging that Christ was crucified for and by all sinners."
The July 18 event is expected to attract 500,000 pilgrims.
Christ told Pilate "he that hath delivered me to thee [the Sanhedrin], hath the greater sin" (John 18;11). Nothing any rabbi or prelate--much less any Hollywood script-writer, establishment journalist, or "Judeo-Christian" book publisher--could say or do can ever change this.
