Updates, Sunday (
I So, council of Jamnia (after destruction of the temple in year 70, assembled between years 80 and 90 in what is now called Yavne) was just a theory, proposed in 1871. In that case, why was it never contradicted by Jewish scholars who might presumably have known better? It was only put in doubt these last few years, over one hundred years later. And if that were the case, why did Jews hide the truth, whatever it is? And how were things like final exclusion of Christians, like rejection of the Seventy's Translation (implying not only rejection of 6-7 books - depending on whether you count Baruch as a book or as an appendix - but also a shorter chronology for instance between creation and flood, making the difference between St Jerome's Christ born Anno Mundi 5199 and Usher's Anno Mundi 4004), as well as mitzvoth replacing those previously enacted in the temple?/HGL
II I looked things up a bit, and here are the wiki articles I consulted:
- Split of early Christianity and Judaism, Council of Jamnia
- Council of Jamnia
Claim that Jewish Christians continued Synagogue worship "for centuries": Wylen (1995). Pg 190., Berard (2006). Pp 112-113., Wright (1992). Pp 164-165. (Whoever those are?)
School or Yeshiva of Jamnia was founded by:
- Johanan ben Zakai
Who showed piety towards a Rabbi Zadok (who had fasted for forty years = since the time of Jesus) and the posterity of Gamaliel (the one who was against persecution of Christians):
- Zadok, The Zadokite dynasty
John ben Zaccaeus? Like son of the tax collector of the Gospel? I simply do not know./HGL
III I would of course not like to, if my father had been saved from unjustice by Jesus, not be accepting him as the true Messiah.
Also, if the Yeshiva in Jamnia may have been peaceful to Christians, it seems not to have been the case with the Sanhedrin. Some agression against Christians was alluded to in Apocalypse, from I think year 90. It seems hard to imagine the Sanhedrin would not have been involved, though it is possible it was involved later.
And, of course, if Christians were praying in synagogues "for centuries" according to Wylen and the others, it does not say if they were Catholics or heretics./HGL
