So regardless of belief, the common tenant of the Christian faith is that Jesus died for your sins. He was arrested and sentenced to execution where he died crucified on the cross. Given that Christianity didn’t really “take off” until the Romans used it to wipe out other faiths … I digress, that’s another story, the Jews have largely been to “blame” for Jesus’ execution. That is, until now. Pope Benedict XVI lays out a sweeping exoneration to the Jews for the Jesus incident in his new book. Does a 2000 year late exoneration matter?
