The Church and Antisemitism by Walter Horton

“The Jews are found in all nations, but are not fully of any nation — a situation which Christians, who are supposed to be in the world but not of the world, holding their citizenship in heaven rather than in any earthly country, should find it easy to understand.”

“In the last analysis antisemitism springs from the fact that the Jews are truly God’s Messianic people, through whom He offers salvation to the world; while the world (including worldly Jews) does not want to be saved, and is forever ready to crucify its saviors.” – Dr. Walter Horton
