Israel and the Gentiles by Henry Schmidt


A review of and reflections on Israel and the Gentiles. Contributions to the History of the Jews, from the earliest times to the present day. By Dr. Isaac Da Costa

‘“In my Lectures on Jewish History,” says the author, “which form the groundwork of this sketch, I have endeavored to notice especially the relations of my people with all the nations of the world, from the earliest days of their existence to the present time; to remark upon what the Gentiles are for the Jews, either as means of instruction or of chastisement, and what Israel has been, and still is, for the Gentiles, either as witnesses to the truth, and victims of their own unbelief, or as the people kept apart, to impart light and salvation to the Gentiles."’

Level of Difficulty: Primer: No subject matter knowledge needed.
