That’s a quote from my modern world history teacher last year.
Actually, he mentioned several times that Judaism is a form of Christianity.
He was a great teacher, knew a lot about modern world history, but extremely liberal and kinda anti-religion. I got the feeling that he knew a heck of a lot more about the development of weaponry through World War I than he did about the different forms of religion.
Teacher: “Can anyone name the 4 largest religions in the world?”
T: “No, Judaism is a form of Christianity”
And the same idea a couple times more throughout the year
Can someone please explain what he meant by that? I know that they are closely interlinked, but…isn’t kinda the point of Judaism that it follows the Old Testament before the teachings of Christ? The Jews were who He taught, and those who followed Him became Christians…right? I’ll admit I don’t know as much as I should about Judaism…sigh. Any help?
Like I said, he knew an awful lot about history, and religion is SUCH a huge part of history, I know he must have had some reason for saying that.
