Blessed! Recovering!

At home catching up on family, mail, exercise, computer, e-mail, reading, prayer. 13 speaking venues in next 5 weeks. Yikes! On my way to speak at a 2,000+ Men’s Conference in Columbus Ohio. Www.StevesSchedule.com.

Firstly I would like to thank you for speaking to us in Mumbai. I was there the first time you came as well, I just can’t get enough :). I was inspired by reading Crossing the Tiber and also the Survival Guide But today I would like you to please comment on the Popes recent statement that there is no scriptural basis that the Jews killed Jesus. http://www.examiner.com/jesus-christ-in-national/jesus-christ-not-killed-by-jews-says-pope-benedict-xvi

It is not time to comment yet. Experience tells that when we read a review of the Pope’s words it is usually twisted or sensationalized by the media. It is best to wait until the book comes out and read this passage in context. I suspect that the Pope will say what is exactly correct: the Jews today, and Jews in history are not to be held responsible for the killing of Christ. It was their leaders, the mob and the Romans at that time. Remembering however that MANY Jews including priests followed and believed in Christ then and thereafter. Jews today and throughout history are obviously not morally responsible for the death of Christ any more than a living American today is responsible for slavery in the 19th century.
