During the early Christian church, the Jews who followed Jesus were mostly 'common' folk, like fishermen, as well as 'unclean', like the tax-collectors, blind, lepers, and the 'despised' - like the Samaritans who were of mixed blood, Jewish and Assyrian. They were considered a threat to the established Jewish religious rulers, who enjoyed high status and priviledge and whom Jesus called a 'brood of vipers'. Jesus acknowledged that His mission was to rescue the poor, down-trodden and self confessed sinners, not the self-righteous hypocrites who did not feel the need to repent. The Jewish disciples were hunted down, imprisoned and killed, sometimes by stoning.

So this is similar to what the Muslims are doing today.

Not really, beyond the acts of the apostles there is very little support for Jewish violence against early followers of Christ. Likely any such violence was restricted to Judea and related to the charge of sedition that Jesus likely faced. The numbers of the early Church are also blown out of proportion.

It's a shocker that Jews murdered their fellow faith adherents and non-Jews?

LMAO...maybe some of you should read your Old Testaments again. The Pentateuch is a compendium of some of the most shocking violence you can imagine. Name the crime...it's in there. Murder, rape, kidnapping, pillaging, genocide, pedophilia, slavery, etc...

And let's be clear; the Jewish record is no worse than the record of any other religion. But it's no better either.

Jews have lived peacefully for hundreds of years, I am going to say their record is a hell of a lot better than their muslim counter parts, regardless of what some ancient text no one follows says.

I don't understand how people try to equate bad things jews and christians did hundreds of years ago to terrible things muslims have been doing in modern times.

Its honestly just funny to me.

Age mystically makes bad things good? How old's it need to be? Is drowning someone to prove they're not a witch considered to have been acceptable behavior now?

Of course not, but thankfully Judaism and Christianity has evolved from their primitive beginnings.

The same can not be said for Islam, and when the left points at christian or jewish atrocities that occurred hundreds of years ago to defend modern day savagery done in the name of Islam, most reasonable people just laugh.

I see one glaring difference........ it is today and religions have evolved..... except for the extremist muslims.
