Funny Story: Religious History

My mom got a religious-themed Christmas card one year with a picture of Mary and baby Jesus. I forgot how I mentioned it, but I did say something about Mary being Jewish. My mother apparently thought Judaism existed after Christianity. Thinking that they were a group of people who didn't think Jesus was the messiah. While Christianity has a different idea of a messiah than Judaism, it's pretty sad that someone could believe in one religion and gets a related religion's history so laughably wrong.

  1. Being raised Catholic, it was awhile before I knew the Jews did not believe in Jesus in the Catholic sense.

  3. Hmmmmmmmmm!
    Weren't the 12 apostles all Jewish? Some of them were "credited" for writing
    the bible.
    I'm 72 years of age and I don't think I have ever met a person of the Jewish faith.
    Anyhow here people don't pick their friends on religious grounds - that is pathetic
    to be like that. I certainly don't ask when introduced - "What religion are you?".

  4. All Christians are theologically adopted Jews! St. Paul was the one who first said that you don't have to be Jewish to be a follower of Jesus-

  12. I so enjoy your funny stories, Adam! I can't remember when I first became aware of other religions, but I do know that my Baptist grandmother MacBeath was very concerned about my fascination with nun in a convent nearby. She thought Catholicism was another religion!
