Dr. Runes Indicts Church for Deicide
Charge; His 'The Jew and the Cross'
Commended by Christian Theologian
"The Jew and the Cross" by
Dagobert D. Runes, published by
Philosophical Library, appears at
an appropriate time, as the Ecu-
menical Council sessions have be-
gun in Rome.
Dr. Runes' new work is an analy-
sis of the Catholic attitude toward
the Jews throughout the centuries,
pointing to the bitternesses, to the
prejudices that have evolved due to
the deicide charge.
"The bias against the Jew is,
like all bias and prejudice, born
not in the mind but in the heart,"
Dr. Runes asserts. "And tragi-
cally enough the hatred of the
Jew is born in the alleged devo-
tional service for Jesus, Son of
Israel, who gave His life to re-
deem the world out of hate and
envy into the glory of charity
. . . It is for the people of Israel
He prayed, suffered and died.
In His own words, 'I did not
come to destroy the Torah, but
to fulfill it.' "
Dr. Runes charges that "anti-
Semitism was born with Christian-
ity; to be sure, not with Jesus, a
Jew himself, whose followers took
conviction in his descendency from
the House of David, but rather with
those who, on the basis of the ser-
mons flowing from the lips of the
gentle Nazarene, created an or-
ganized church with priests,
bishops and vestrymen."
He charges that the "rapidly
spreading religious body . • . formu-
lated a New Testament . .. which
dramatized in a most touching man-
ner the life and self-willed death
of Jeshu ben Joseph, in which
drama, however, the Jew was as-
signed, with a cold and merciless

gesture, the image of the devil
Then he makes this addition ac-
"The writers of the Catholic
Church were given directions to
separate the people of Israel,
Christ's very own people, from
the other so-called non-believers.
They changed the self-willed
death of the redeemed into a
case of a judicial murder on the
part of a Jewish 'people's court.'
They wrote in one scene of their
sacred play that the Lord wanted
to die, thus taking the original
sin of mankind upon Himself. In
another scene they made the
Lord a pitiful victim of vicious
Jewish zealots, making not only
the Jews of Jerusalem respon-
sible for this alleged assassina-
tion by a Judeo-Roman court,
but also the millions of Jews of
that time who lived in Alexan-
dria, in Babylon and elsewhere,
and who had neither part nor
knowledge of the events in the
Holy Land. The scribes of the
church further made responsible
the Jews of all future genera-
tions. At this very writing there
are Catholic cardinals, bishops
and priests meeting in Rome,
some of whom still insist that the
Jews of today must share the
responsibility for the death of
Christ." • •
He indicates f u r t h e r the ludi-
crousness of a Greek Catholic lead-
er who "desired to make a com-
plete chain of condernnation around
the Jewish people, embracing to-
morrow as well as yesterday."
Commending Dr. Runes' "The
Jew and the Cross," Prof. Vergi-
lius Ferm, editor of Encyclopedia
of Religion, former president of
the American Theological Society,
calls it "a block-buster" and states:
"There is no indictment here
against the great Jewish Prophet
. . . but against the theological per-
version made by the Catholic
Church. It is time for a redress of
this grievous sin—a major sin of
Christians. There is no room here
for dialogue. There is room here
only for redress."
